About the role
At Arden University, you will be working with a dynamic team of academic lecturers and support staff.

The Foundation Year is designed to enable students who may not have previous higher education experience to reach their potential. Arden University’s Foundation Year programme supports learners to understand university terminology, the various types of assessment, and other study skills.
Our foundation year enables students to experience university-style teaching and to also have a taster of the subjects they are interested in. It gives students a richer understanding of their subject areas which makes it easier for them to progress onto undergraduate study.
There are a wide range of degree programmes available to students who complete the foundation year level.
The benefits of working at Arden include having access to a range of resources, working in a close-knit team who will support you in your teaching and delivery to students.
