Mary Ward Centre
Politics and Economics at the Mary Ward Centre
The centre is looking to add some Politics and/or Economics courses to its course offer in Humanities and Social Sciences, having previously run successful courses in these subject areas. We are looking for someone who is keen, inspirational and has a special flair. We are interested in talking to someone with a depth of knowledge in politics and/or economics who could offer introductory courses to develop the interest of students in the subject, as well as offering somewhat more specialist courses exploring particular topics or themes. You are very welcome to include proposals of the kinds of courses you would like to offer as part of the application process. Details of the kinds of courses we have run previously are available upon request.
The Mary Ward Centre offers high quality adult education and community services, covering the areas of Digital Media, Computing & IT, Business and Management, English and Maths, Languages, Humanities and Social Sciences, Health and Social Care, Writing and Publishing, Visual Arts, Music and Singing.
In the current academic year (2022-23) the centre’s main premises are at Queen Square in Holborn and we also hold sessions at our other site at Blackfriars Settlement, 1 Rushworth Street SE1 0RB, which is a short walk from Waterloo and Southwark underground stations. From academic year 2023-24 our main site will move to a new purpose-built premises on Stratford High Street, 10 minutes’ walk from the main train and bus station and 5 minutes from Stratford High Street DLR. We will continue to deliver courses from the Blackfriars settlement as well. Our students will continue to come from all walks of life, living both locally and London wide (and beyond). Their education, work and life experience varies enormously.
In recent years, we have also expanded our provision of courses to include some courses delivered partly or wholly online via the Zoom platform. We may consider running a course in this mode of delivery if in our view there is a compelling reason to do so.
The deadline to submit application forms is Monday 17th April 2023.
