The Queen’s Foundation seeks a full-time tutor to join the Anglican team within the Centre for Ministerial Formation in their collective task of supporting the formation of Anglican ordinands.
The tutor will work closely with the Director of Anglican Formation and other Anglican colleagues, as well as the wider team in the Centre for Ministerial Formation.
This is an opportunity to join a theological institution:
The tutor will have four main responsibilities.
To be a personal tutor to Anglican ordinands.
The successful applicant would support a group of students through their formational experience (normally around 12 students for a full-time tutor). This is a key role requiring regular meetings with candidates, being responsible for ensuring that their Learning and Formation Agreement and Link Church Agreement are completed, supporting and challenging them in their learning and formation, and taking a lead on the writing of their end of year report.
To take a lead in the organisation and planning of Anglican student placements
This entails liaising with parishes and other placement-providers, and with other tutors, in finding, setting up and supporting appropriate short-term placements for Anglican students. These placements primarily take place in the summer term of a student’s first year.
To contribute to the teaching programme across the Foundation.
No specific theological specialism is designated for this post. The appointed tutor will be expected to work as part of the wider academic team, teaching as appropriate from within their own specialism, and contributing more generally to the Foundation’s academic programme – both online and face-to-face.
To support the Anglican Team’s work in maintaining, and potentially expanding, the number of Anglican students choosing to study at Queen’s.
Though the main task of processing applications from Anglican ordinands falls to the Anglican Admissions Tutor, all Anglican staff are expected to contribute to Open Days and to promote the work of the Foundation through appropriate channels.

The Queen’s College was founded in 1830 as one of the first Anglican Theological Colleges in England, pioneering training physicians (doctors) alongside clergy. In 1970 Queen’s took another radical step as it became an ecumenical college, bringing Methodists and Anglicans into a single institution. In 2000 the Queen’s College became the Queen’s Foundation to reflect its rapidly growing diverse range of activities. In 2012 Queen’s was identified and chosen by the Methodist Conference to be one of the Connexional Centres for theological education and formation, and is the only Centre authorised to train Methodist student ministers.
