“The purpose of the University Teaching Officer Scheme is to enable all Colleges to operate effectively in the educational field by ensuring a reasonable distribution of University Teaching Officers (UTOs) amongst them”.
This is a Scheme introduced at the start of 2018, the aim of which is to attract new appointments to Colleges most of need of Fellows in a subject area.
The Scheme is administered by the Office of Intercollegiate Affairs (OIS).
For established office vacancies, Colleges can, if they wish, express an interest in approaching the successful candidate regarding a College Fellowship. The OIS will provide the Recruitment Adviser a list of interested colleges at the recruitment campaign closing date.
The OIS will request a copy of the successful applicant’s CV to forward to the relevant colleges, assuming the individual is content for this to take place.
OIS and the Colleges manage this process and Faculties and Departments are otherwise not expected to assist any College in their communications about potential College Fellowships.
Although encouraged to participate in College education by accepting election to a Fellowship of a College, the UTO appointee is not under any obligation to do so.
