The number of seminars to be led varies for each course and will be confirmed before teaching begins. The post holder will maintain an up-do-date register of attendance for all practical sessions. Liaising regularly with the course leader regarding the content and progress of the computer practicals will be required. PGTAs will also normally assist the course leaders in marking student assessments (full guidance will be provided).
