Job description
The Creative Business (CB) programme is a four-year bachelor’s degree that prepares students for positions in the media and entertainment industries. Proficiency in English is necessary to operate in these industries successfully and the curriculum offers a first-year module of 3 ECTS called English for the Media. The module teaches students to write and speak English professionally at CEF level B1 going on to B2. Students attend taught sessions, consultancy sessions and follow online lectures and submit a written and spoken assignment for assessment. Sessions are pre-designed and are scheduled twice a week for four weeks starting 15 April 2019. The work in subsequent weeks consists of marking and resits. Due to a large number of unstaffed groups we are looking for freelance English teachers who can be present twice a week and teach and assess two or three classes of approximately 30 students each.

Range of tasks:

  • teach classes of theory and practice;
  • conduct consultancy sessions in small groups giving individual feedback and encouraging students to perform well;
  • assess whether students have achieved the learning goals using rubrics;
  • process marks and assessment forms as part of an online learning platform, including the resits.


The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) is based in The Netherlands, in the city of Amsterdam. Amsterdam is a cosmopolitan city where 175 different nationalities live and work together and where the English language is largely spoken. The city is a hotbed of education and research in all conceivable areas: culture and society, trade, logistics, aviation, shipping, ICT, sport, healthcare, education and much more. At AUAS we take full advantage of this wealth of opportunities in order to provide the best possible education and produce cutting-edge research.

The business sector needs graduates who have both intercultural and international (work/study) experience. For this reason AUAS ensures that internationalisation is integrally embedded in our educational programmes and the research activities of our schools.

The AUAS trains the professionals of tomorrow. Practical orientated research is an important component of the educational programmes offered by our schools. Our research always addresses a real-life world problem from the professional field, and we conduct the research in close collaboration with both academics and professionals working in the particular discipline. We have a joint Executive Board with the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and our close cooperation with the UvA is particularly valuable for research purposes.

The AUAS consists of seven schools. We have a total of 43,000 students  and offer a total of 80 bachelor and master programmes.

We have 250 partner institutes across 50 different countries and contribute to various educational projects such as curriculum development, research projects, student/professor exchanges and work placements within an international working field. This ensures that the education provided by AUAS is truly internationally orientated.
