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 individuals with expertise in coaching to join on our expert panel of hourly-paid, part-time sessional tutors. The panel tutor role will engage with the existing teaching team undertaking a variety of allocated roles such as; delivery of face-to-face and online teaching, conducting marking and providing feedback on assessments and helping develop the non-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 in a higher education setting. ICE’s undergraduate Coaching programme can be viewed on our website here;

Preferably, applicants will have experience of teaching diverse cohorts of undergraduate students in an established university setting and have experience of marking and providing feedback for summative assessments. A recognised higher education teaching qualification would also be beneficial. 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 teach selected dates from an existing Monday-Friday schedule and be available to teach weekends and evenings on our campus at Madingley Hall, which is four miles west of Cambridge city centre.
