Casual Teaching


This section is directed to those of you who are either students, visitors from other departments, or are planning to undertake casual teaching in different departments e.g. lecturing, demonstrating, teaching.


 If you are new to casual teaching:


 If you are a returning casual (after 12 months or longer), please also make sure that a Right to Work check has been carried out, prior to commencing any form of casual teaching.


right to work check is a Home Office process to establish that each employee/casual worker has the right to work in the UK.

Under the 2006 Immigration, Nationality and Asylum Act the University has a duty to prevent illegal working by carrying out document checks to confirm that a person has the right to work in the UK. All employees, casual workers, and Tier 5 sponsored visa holders must have their right to work checked before they start work at the University. In addition, those with time-limited right to work in the UK (i.e. those who hold a ‘List B’ document such as a visa) must have a repeat check before their visa/document is due to expire.

Please remember - it is ESSENTIAL that any Casual Teacher goes to Admin in Biochemistry, BEFORE they start work, with their passport for RTW to be carried out. Your Demonstrator/ Lecturer won't be paid for classes he's/ she's done, unless there is an update in the system or RTW check done.


A new casual contract will be required for each Academic year  - please remember we are required by new Legislation to issue an individual with a contract covering the casual work before they undertake that work. 


Please note that a new Right to Work check will have to be carried out regardless of whether this has been done in another department(s) or College(s). 

If you are a member of the Biochemistry Department, you can find more information under this link.
