Codetoday runs courses in the afternoons during school term and across the whole day during school holidays. We would expect prospective candidates to have availability within a number of our teaching slots.
The salary is based on a £35,000 per annum full-time equivalent and will be pro-rated to a part-time equivalent depending on the number of hours agreed. This is an employed position and therefore entitled to annual leave and other statutory benefits and contributions. Applicants are required to have the right to work in the UK.
