We seek to appoint a Teaching Fellow to work as part of a small team to deliver a programme of immersive technical training in object-oriented development and database management for a Degree Apprenticeship in computing. The Degree Apprenticeship has been developed for students in full-time computing employment and the training delivered by you will prepare them to start their employment and lay the foundations for the remainder of their study and a long and successful career in software development. Training will be delivered full-time to small groups of students in eight week blocks.

The successful applicant will join the Computer Science subject group at Aston: an expanding and collegiate team of computer scientists who deliver distinctive programmes at undergraduate and Masters levels that achieve some of the highest employability rates for CS graduates in the UK.

You will combine technical expertise in object-oriented development in Java and in relational database management with strong communication skills, experience of delivering teaching to small groups and the ability to convey your knowledge of the industrial context of computing. You will have a good undergraduate and Master’s degree in a relevant subject or equivalent relevant professional qualification. A formal teaching qualification and/or a doctorate in Computer Science is desirable but not essential.

We particularly welcome applications from candidates with relevant industrial experience and from women. Aston University is committed to the principles of the Athena SWAN Charter, recognized recently by a prestigious Silver Award to EAS. We pride ourselves on our vibrant, friendly and supportive working environment and collaborative atmosphere.

Further particulars and application forms are available in alternative formats on request i.e. large print, Braille, tape or CD Rom.
