Course & Module Leader Indicative Responsibilities

Following a detailed consultation with faculties and UCU the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Committee (LTEC) approved the Course and Module Leader indicative responsibilities on the 13th of February 2015

The Course Leader Indicative Responsibilities are intended to give academic staff who have course leadership as part of their role an indication as to the type and level of associated responsibilities. It is recognised that being a course leader is not a post in itself – staff undertaking the role remain in their substantive post as Senior Lecturer or Lecturer etc. The indicative responsibilities outlined are not a role descriptor but an outline of the responsibilities that are expected of a Course leader and therefore will not detail all the activities that may be carried out. These key responsibilities will be operationalised within the Faculties according to the specific course needs in discussion with the relevant Academic Subject Manager.
