Abstract

This report arises from the findings of the Higher Education Academy Joint Subject Centre
Development Project Supporting Part-Time Teaching Staff in Higher Education, which was
conducted between November 2006 and November 2008 on behalf of the Business
Management Accountancy and Finance, and Health Sciences and Practice Subject Centres.
Part-time teachers (PTTs) account for a substantial proportion of the UK academic labour
market in the general fields of business and management, and health care. The focus of this
project was PTTs who were mid-career professionals and experienced managers,
consultants or clinical experts: the dominant group from which PTTs in these two fields are
drawn. For this reason, graduate teaching assistants and contract researchers who might
undertake part-time teaching were excluded from the study
