Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


The University of Cambridge’s Institute of Continuing Education (ICE), based at Madingley Hall, offers a vibrant and diverse array of courses for personal enrichment and academic and professional development. Courses range from non-award-bearing courses, many of which are open-access, to innovative part-time Master of Studies (MSt) degrees. Around 300 ICE panel tutors, across a variety of academic disciplines, make a vital contribution to the quality of teaching, learning and student support. 

We are currently seeking applications from suitably qualified coaches with specific expertise in assessment and online teaching, to join our expert panel of hourly-paid, part-time sessional tutors. The panel tutor role will engage with the existing teaching team to undertake the facilitation of the online teaching element, marking and provision of feedback on assessments for the award-bearing coaching portfolio.

Candidates will be educated to at least Master’s level and will be coaching professionals with expertise as a coach trainer familiar with teaching and assessing in a higher education setting. ICE’s undergraduate Coaching programme can be viewed here;

Applicants must have experience of online teaching and marking and providing feedback for summative assessments (at minimum of FHEQ Level 4). A student-centred approach and an interest in supporting adult part-time students from a broad range of educational backgrounds is essential.  Tutors must be available to deliver online teaching and assess work from an existing schedule of dates.  

Informal enquiries may be addressed to: Victoria Steenkamp at

In the first instance please submit your professional CV (with names and details of two referees) and a supporting statement of no more than 400 words outlining your interest in this opportunity to: Victoria Steenkamp at

The final closing date for applications is Monday 20 May 2019.

Panel Tutors are not employees of the University but receive a Temporary Worker Agreement for their services from the Institute before their course begins, subject to the necessary Right to Work checks.
