As an instructor, you will teach in our classes at Imperial College - either in South Kensington or White City.
Every session will be a little bit different, but the general format will have you supporting 5 - 10 children aged 7 - 15 while they work through coding projects in our online platform for about 1.5 hours.
We provide a library of projects for the kids, helping them to make games, puzzles, and animations. They are introduced to core topics, then follow step by step instructions within tutorials before finally being challenged with open-ended briefs.
Your role is to be a guide, directing students towards projects they’ll get the most out of, helping them get to grips with new concepts, explaining how to break problems down, and helping them to debug their code when they get stuck.
We deal with all the admin, and provide you with resources and advice from our experiences of teaching and working with kids. All you have to do is turn up and teach. We do the rest.
Kids are all so different; they can be hilarious, want you to try their games, or just have a bit of a chat.
Teaching typically happens on a Saturday, but we're flexible with when you teach and realise term time pressures can get in the way some weekends.
We run at Imperial College in both South Kensington and White City - so we're likely to have a class near you!
You get to help the next generation shape the digital world they're growing up in, and learn really valuable skills.
Not only do you help the kids, but you can build your confidence and communication skills, and learn some coding along the way.
You start on £10 per hour as a trainee, then after a 10 hours of teaching will start earning £12.50 as a regular instructor. Lead instructors earn £15 per hour.
