CUREE likes to augment it's core team by engaging Associates who extend our reach by adding particular skills or experience to our mix or allow us to expand our capacity to respond to peaks in demand. Usually Associates are engaged to work on a particular project for a finite time or to undertake particular work. We are particularly interested in people who:
- can write succinctly, cogently and efficiently for a practitioner audience drawing on (often technical) research;
- have the confidence and experience to evaluate practice in schools and colleges; follow a set of protocols and write up the 'findings' accurately and non-judgmentally;
- can facilitate teachers' and school leaders' learning using CUREE's interactive methods, and evidence-based resources and materials.
If you are interested in working with us on this basis, drop a line to email@example.com outlining how your skills would be useful to us. Please don't just send your standard CV.
