Job Details

We are looking for an experienced and suitably qualified teachers of Computer Science who are keen to be part of a successful, friendly, and dynamic collaboration with the Department of Informatics and Kings Foundations.

As a foundation year teacher, you will be teaching highly capable and motivated international students on the Kings’ Foundations programme, which is a one year RQF (Regulated Qualification Framework) Level 3 programme for those intending to progress to undergraduate degrees at university.

While we are a campus-based university and the programme is delivered on campus, it is essential that you are able to demonstrate ability and experience in online and or blended approaches to teaching.

Your responsibility will be to enable our students to achieve their potential and progress to studying a degree as independent, critical and creative learners.  In addition, you will be given opportunities to contribute to the development and delivery of the Computer Science & Mathematics module.

Please note that as some of the students you will teach will be under 18, you may be required to act as a Personal Tutor to these students and as such an enhanced check by the Disclosure and Barring Service is a prerequisite for the role.

The Department of Informatics is based in the iconic Bush House building (a Grade II listed building that formerly housed the BBC World Service), where some of the teaching takes place, but  you may also be required to work from any of King’s campuses.

King’s values the diversity of its staff and student body and recognises that this is both a strength and defining feature of King’s as a London university in a global context.  We therefore particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups.

The role will be fixed term for 12 months starting from 1st September 2024.

This is a full-time  post - 100% full time equivalent
