    Sorry if I sound slow!
    My interpretation of an associate lecturer is that the hours are 'as and when required' and you have no real employment rights in terms of being kept on etc.
    Is this an accurate interpretation? How is being an associate lecturer different to being a 'bank lecturer' for example?
    I have seen an advert for a job as one but the description does not explain what being an associate lecturer means.
    Thank you muchly.

  3. My understanding (but please feel free to correct me anyone) is that an associate lecturer is in the process of training to be a teacher, i.e. is doing DTTLS but being paid to teach at the same time.

    I have a PGCE 14-19 so does that mean I wouldn't be eligible? They state a hourly rate rather than a salary which led me to believe it would be 'as and when'.
    Thanks for the information, salaried positions seem very rare!
