The tutor selected will be required to support students via email (approx 3 hours of work a week) and by two face-to-face workshops held in the Middle East normally in Amman, Jordan. The tentative schedule for workshops in the first half of 2010 is :

End February / early March 2010 (total 5 days)
Group C (12 students) - to review Unit 7 PRAP & introduce Unit 6 ECR (3 days)
Group B (7 students) - to revise Unit 15 OCMC (2 days)

Mid May 2010 (total 4 days)
Group C (12 students)- to revise unit 6 ECR
The current phase will end by July 2010 with a new phase for AAT Technician Stage study is scheduled to start in August. This phase is expected to extend for approximately 16 months and will include 5 workshops of 4 days each.
Involvement in the Technician Stage of study will be offered to the same tutor if they have shown that they are competent and committed to the project

Both students and tutor are provided with a full set of comprehensive study material. Each chapter of the study material includes exercises / case studies / activities. The answers are in the book and students are encouraged to self check their work and if necessary ask the tutor for an explanation.

Students have supervisors on site as the first line of reference but tend to contact the Tutor by email (especially after a Workshop) for feedback. The major role of the Tutor is therefore to run the Workshops - introduce accounting units through direct teaching, administer and mark exercises / mock exams etc and give feedback. The selected tutor will not be required to get involved in non-accounting units.

The tutor will be provided with additional study material. This will help the tutor to identify additional exercise and mock exams that may be required.

Applicants with a valid passport should have an accounting qualification with good written and oral communication skills in English. Proven teaching of accounting is essential. You will be expected to commit to the project for at least 7 months and will be remunerated. Additionally economy return airfares, hotel accommodation & food at the workshop venue plus all prior approved reasonable expenses will be paid.

Candidates currently in Full-Time employment are welcome to apply, but if selected will need to take a total of about 9 days off work to attend the two workshops scheduled between February 2010 and July 2010.

Please send a current detailed CV and recent photo, together with a covering letter identifying why you feel you are suitable for the position. These should be sent as attachments to before 28 January 2010.
