The individual will have successfully delivered an architecture design studio in an architecture school and be able to demonstrate creativity when supporting students to generate design ideas, iterate, and synthesise credible design projects that reflect current, critical debates in the profession and beyond.

  •     Supporting the Course Team in the administration, recruitment, and promotion of the Department of Architecture.

Working closely with the Course Leaders, the candidate will deliver design studio teaching and technical skills at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels and engage in cross-disciplinary activities to develop the collaborative approach at Ravensbourne. 

The role will require the preparation of material, admissions and recruitment, coordination, citizenship, and consultancy, as required by the Department of Architecture.
