NTU Short Course Offer – Tutor Call Out

Posted on: 27/09/2021

There is an opportunity / need for tutors for short courses to be run at Mansfield College – one of Nottingham Trent University’s partners.

Mansfield District Council has been awarded funds through the government’s Community Renewal Fund (CRF): “The UK government is providing an additional £220 million funding through the UK Community Renewal Fund to help local areas prepare for the launch of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund in 2022. This Fund aims to support people and communities most in need across the UK to pilot programmes and new approaches and will invest in skills, community and place, local business, and supporting people into employment. All places across the UK are eligible for pilot funding.” NTU’s short course offer has been agreed as follows: Digital Design Software Training (for 18 – 24 year-olds) Courses to run between January and March 2022.

These courses could take place during the daytimes but, to make them accessible, weekend or evening options will be more important. Each course will run for 25 hours and will take place in Mansfield (at one of NTU’s partner colleges). The courses will not offer credit but will offer a CPD certificate. Each course will combine software skills that can be applied to an attendee’s professional environment right now (or in the future) with 1-2-1 portfolio advice and industry insights. Via the strategic partnerships team, businesses will be given the opportunity to feedback on the courses and content in advance, providing an element of co-design. 
The key subjects could be: Graphic design, typography Branding, editorial design, information design, Interactive design, Digital illustration, Motion graphics, Game arts, concept design.
