Senior Lecturer [Childhood and Youth Studies] at MMU


Please note the following vacancy for a Senior Lecturer at MMU, with a closing date of 11th August.


Senior Lecturer (Childhood and Youth Studies): Grade 9: £40,082-46,414.00


MMU are seeking to appoint a suitably experienced colleague who can take forward the Childhood and Youth Programmes into the next period of development for a new generation of practitioners. The Department for Childhood, Youth and Education Studies offers programmes in Early Years and Childhood, Youth and Community and Education Studies.  A major revalidation of Early Years and Childhood Studies and Youth and Community Work Programmes has been held in 2015 – 2016, which has brought the two previously separate programmes together in order to provide a wider range of professional and academic opportunities for students.


A recognised graduate professional youth and community work qualification is desirable but not essential.


The post is based in Manchester but will also involve significant management, administrative and teaching commitments on the Department’s Childhood and Family and Youth and Community Programmes at the Crewe Campus (MMU Cheshire).


MMU are particularly keen to attract a colleague with fresh ideas for improving student recruitment, employability and student satisfaction. The role involves leading and working closely with colleagues in delivering all aspects of the programmes. The successful candidate will also take a key role in supporting the Department’s research and knowledge exchange strategy and a doctoral qualification is essential (candidates with theses at submission stage will be considered).


For an informal discussion regarding the requirements of the role please contact Kerry Moakes (

  1. Just been looking for youth work college courses for a 17 year old, no specific youth work courses available all tied up with early years etc…..
    Keep hearing from other agencies, young people wanting youth worker style of approach, Rotherham being a good example of that.
