About the position
Are you a vibrant and exuberant person who loves leading activities? Would you like to empower children by helping them understand how the technology they use in their everyday lives work?

We are currently focusing on finding skilled and enthusiastic coding and robotics teachers for our upcoming after-school clubs. Our after-school clubs take place at schools around London and sessions generally run between 2-5pm, depending on the club. Our teaching positions offer a flexible schedule and you will be able to choose how many days of the week you’d like to teach for.
In addition to our clubs, we run lots of other coding and robotics activities for children such as holiday camps, private tutoring, birthday parties and online classes. Therefore, you will have opportunities to design your schedule quite flexibly during term time as well as school holidays.

We are the premier go-to resource for London schools and parents, providing coding clubs, camps and onlines classes for creative and curious children aged 5 to 14. Our mission: empowering students with the tools of technology to become “makers” wherever their imagination takes them now and spark an understanding of how they can shape their future world.
