Academic Teacher: Role Profile

Teachers lead morning classes and/or afternoon workshops across a range of 50+ study options during the summer programme; these provide our students with the opportunity to explore new subjects and concepts beyond the curriculum and to consider their future academic careers at university level.

Our courses are designed to be demanding and rewarding, taking full advantage of the fantastic facilities and surroundings Oxford affords to widen the frame of learning our students receive. Teachers are fully supported by our staff team and can expect to lead the teaching of programmes which integrate a variety of teaching techniques and opportunities for student-centred learning; these include discussions, debates, practical activities and excursions to sites of academic interest.

Our courses are taught to a high standard and in accordance with the procedures of Oxford Royale Academy and our accrediting bodies. From 2010-2013 and in 2015 we received ‘Best Educational Product’ at the British Youth Travel Awards in recognition of the quality of our course materials, teaching standards and academic programme – a standard of quality which we strive to maintain and improve upon.
