Instructor | Flexible Position
Next round of recruitment: early 2021
Please note we are not accepting applications at this stage but you can read the job description from our last recruitment round below.
At codetoday we are looking for people who are willing to join our team of instructors. Codetoday courses have been going from strength to strength owing to the two pillars they are constructed on: exceptional content and exceptional delivery.
The ideal codetoday instructor does not need to be a professional programmer but will have a background in relevant fields such as science, maths, programming, IT or similar.
Excellent communication and a very good aptitude with children are essential.
They will be expected to gain familiarity with the codetoday content and curriculum and to meet the high standards of course delivery, following training provided by codetoday.
Successful candidates will be able to work remotely, delivering sessions online.
This is a fully flexible contract: there is flexibility in number of hours worked. 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 hourly pay rate is £18 (~£35,000 per annum full-time equivalent). This is an employed position and therefore entitled to annual leave and other statutory benefits and contributions.
Codetoday instructors will:
have a good understanding of the basic principles of programming;
have a very good aptitude with children, with the ability to make themselves accessible to the younger children and be at ease with teenagers;
be excellent and confident communicators, with very good English standards and an outgoing personality, an ability to explain complex concepts in a simple manner and with good attention to detail;
be able to command respect and authority with the class when required, while keeping the tone friendly and informal;
be willing and keen to learn further on both programming aspects and teaching methods and techniques;
follow the codetoday ethos and objectives.
