Summary

We are looking for candidates with a passion for coding who want to help train the next generation of developers to join our Short Course Provision team. You will be teaching adult learners with little or no coding experience, giving them an insight into what life would be like in the tech industry. Along with your teaching or training experience you will need a passion for coding. You will promote enthusiasm for learning and the digital sector. Our courses range from two-day introductions to front-end development, three-week fundamentals courses with a fully accredited level 2 certificate, and much more that we are currently planning for the future.

We teach Python, HTML and CSS as our core development languages, but we are happy if you have a background in another, as full training on all the course content will be given. The digital sector is continually developing, and the rate of change is unlikely to slow down; you must therefore be flexible to take on changing responsibilities.

  • Adhere to awarding body requirements - collect and monitor student performance, providing feedback to ensure our students know what they need to do next to progress and gain their qualification.

  2. Working well as part of a team while also being able to work independently are essential skills.
