Could you be the next Melanie Phillips?

Melanie Phillips contacted me this week to tell me that she's wanting to recruit a replacement for herself in her role as the Learning Course Tutor for the Coloured Pencil Certificate Course which is run as a distance learning course by the London Art College. The college holds full accreditation from the Open & Distance Learning Quality Council. That means they meet the ODLQC's defined standards for delivering distance learning.

Here are the details which Melanie sent me. I also found out that the assessments of students' work can be in done in either written or audio format. Melanie can provide more details of exactly how the course works and what the role involves.

She's very friendly - don't hesitate to get in touch if you're interested.

There is a vacancy for a distance Learning Course Tutor for the Coloured Pencil Certificate Course. This is a unique opportunity to work with students from the comfort of your own home or studio. The successful applicant will eventually be able to put their mark on the course and make it their own.
