.NET, Web and Azure Development Trainer

Learning

London

Do you think sometimes you’ve spent too long in industry? Fed up with your hands on software development role? How about teaching others for a living?

Why apply?

If you've had enough of contracting or your permanent role is no longer challenging you. How about doing something different and helping others understand the technical world of .NET, Web and Azure. Then this role is perfect for you.

Who are we?

As one of the largest learning services organisations in the UK. We like to help develop skills and capabilities for everyone from apprentices to business leaders. With our HQ in London and 20 training centres nationwide, QA Group is comprised of four fast-growing divisions- QA Learning, QA Apprenticeships, QA Consulting and QA Higher Education- all of which deliver innovative, award winning (2016 Top 20 IT Training Companies List) & ever evolving skills solutions.

What is the role?

With our support and training, you will deliver face to face / e-Learning / digital training and content development for all areas within the QA family to likeminded people. Whether this is a highly qualified professional or young learners looking to get into the world of Technology.

You will be delivering both public scheduled and bespoke courses for all areas of QA’s C#, Azure and .NET portfolio, particularly Web Applications on C# and Development of Windows.NET.

How will we support you?

Experienced or not experienced, you will be assigned a co-pilot (friendly buddy but cool sounding name) to help get you up to speed. For those who are not qualified, we will help you achieve your Microsoft Certified Trainer accreditation which gives you the confidence and knowledge to teach.

Money

Academic Lecturer Computing ZHC

Higher Education

Manchester

Lecturer in Computing and IT     

Manchester Campus  - Zero hour contract 

About our role: As Lecturer you will be responsible for the student progress and academic achievement. Of particular interest are experienced lecturers across levels 4 to 7 in Computing & IT.   

Your focus: As a Lecturer with our HE Business School you will have the ability to:            

Plan, prepare, teach/deliver modules and support student’s learning on a range of programmes and related subject areas

Provide guidance, support and tutorship for student groups and individuals as appropriate.

Meet partnership and internal quality assurance processes in relation to programmes

Develop and grow relationships with partnership organisations.

Carry out academic administration duties as required

Maintain personal and professional development in line with agreed appraisal and development programme in order to enhance personal knowledge and contribution to relevant activities. 

Bring your experience: Applicants should have suitable and relative teaching experience and should hold a Masters, MBA or higher degree in a relevant subject area. PhD holders with current publications are welcomed. A teaching qualification and membership of the HEA would be advantageous.

Our Company: At QAHE you will be surrounded by staff who love teaching and prioritise the student experience. We specialise in teaching as our main focus and ensuring a good experience for the learner is the number one priority for the team.

Perhaps the most significant difference visible on campus is that traditional universities tend to be quite empty (of academic staff) as lecturers spend much less time in the office. There is a friendly and supportive atmosphere here at QAHE with typically far more team-working, promoted in part by more regular staff attendance on campus and in the staff offices.

Some potential candidates will find this, and the emphasis on teaching rather than research, very attractive. Academic staff in traditional universities of all ranks are placed under significant demand for research outputs and so have to balance a teaching load and the associated administration with their research obligations. To some this feels like an impossible burden (particularly when expectations around consultancy are added).

The management hierarchy at QAHE (year heads, deputy course managers and so on) creates opportunities for course management and career progression at QAHE and these types of responsibilities are genuinely devolved in a way that is typically uncommon in other HEIs.

Salary range:

£50.00 per hour inc of holiday pay

Our benefits and values:

Learning is not just a service we provide, it’s a way of life at QA, so everyone is eligible for 3 Training Days every year, to focus on subjects they’re interested in.

Our Company: At QAHE you will be surrounded by staff who love teaching and prioritise the student experience. We specialise in teaching as our main focus and ensuring a good experience for the learner is the number one priority for the team.

Perhaps the most significant difference visible on campus is that traditional universities tend to be quite empty (of academic staff) as lecturers spend much less time in the office. There is a friendly and supportive atmosphere here at QAHE with typically far more team-working, promoted in part by more regular staff attendance on campus and in the staff offices.

Some potential candidates will find this, and the emphasis on teaching rather than research, very attractive. Academic staff in traditional universities of all ranks are placed under significant demand for research outputs and so have to balance a teaching load and the associated administration with their research obligations. To some this feels like an impossible burden (particularly when expectations around consultancy are added).

The management hierarchy at QAHE (year heads, deputy course managers and so on) creates opportunities for course management and career progression at QAHE and these types of responsibilities are genuinely devolved in a way that is typically uncommon in other HEIs.

Your Learning & Development with QA, how can we support you? Naturally you will have a comprehensive Induction Programme organised and you will be introduced to various internal teams and stakeholders. You will attend our well received Company Orientation Programme and of course complete our mandatory e-learning training.  Being a training and education provider, your continuous Learning and Development is of huge importance to us and as an individual contributor, we can agree a suitable pathway to achieve your goals and aspirations. Learning is not just a service we provide, it’s a way of life at QA, so everyone is eligible for 3 Training Days every year, to focus on subjects they are interested in.

QAHE benefits and values:

We offer 2 paid Charity Days each year to support your chosen charity in whatever way you choose AND if you get involved in charity fundraising, QA will also double any sponsorship money raised, up to £250. 

Recharge your batteries and enjoy some down time with 25 days’ holiday per annum (rising to 28 days after 5 years) – with the option to buy more if you wish.

And finally, a few fringe benefits to assist with travel and lifestyle choices: Season ticket loan, Discounted gym membership, Cycle to work scheme

Working at QAHE: At QAHE you will be surrounded by staff who love teaching and prioritise the student experience. We specialise in teaching as our main focus and ensuring a good experience for the learner is the number one priority for the team. Perhaps the most significant difference visible on campus is that traditional universities tend to be quite empty (of academic staff) as lecturers spend much less time in the office. There is a friendly and supportive atmosphere here at QAHE with typically far more team-working, promoted in part by more regular staff attendance on campus and in the staff offices. Some potential candidates will find this, and the emphasis on teaching rather than research, very attractive. Academic staff in traditional universities of all ranks are placed under significant demand for research outputs and so have to balance a teaching load and the associated administration with their research obligations. To some this feels like an impossible burden (particularly when expectations around consultancy are added) and QAHE are keen to ensure a far more balanced workload approach across the team.

The management hierarchy at QAHE (Year Heads, Deputy Programme Managers, Programme Managers ect.) creates opportunities for course management and career progression, and these types of responsibilities are genuinely devolved in a way that is typically uncommon in other HEIs.

Salary range: Permanent £35-42k + Company Benefits / £50ph for Sessional

Closing Date: Opportunity open until successfully recruited, no closing date set.

Are you a creative, passionate and student-focused individual with experience of teaching computing related subjects in the contexts of cyber security, information assurance, web-engineering, project management and digital leadership, digital forensics to name but a few, with an aspiration to enhance the learning experience of work based learners.

If so, you could be just the person we are looking for to join our teaching team as an associate lecturer within QAHE’s expanding Part Time Masters Part Time Portfolio in collaboration with Northumbria University.  Successful candidates will teach on modules across three new programmes designed to meet the career development needs of professionals working in in the IT industry in the capacity of a manager or aiming to gain entry to the computing or cyber technology sector.    The inclusion of Digital Leadership as a core module within our computing programmes as it recognises the increasing demand for managers who are technically savvy and also able to inspire teams that drives transformation and business outcomes.

These programmes utilise technology to support blended learning which is delivered in a flipped classroom style.  We are seeking tutors and module leads to deliver content through interactive workshops and supported guided learning.

OUR Exciting Opportunity

We are seeking an individual who can display a strong aptitude for module development and management to work with our team of lecturers, alongside having a rigorous approach to quality of teaching, learning and assessment.  

Ideally we would like you to have had experience in teaching on Level 7 programmes and be able to demonstrate high student satisfaction.  As our programmes are delivered as collaborative provision, you will be required to maintain excellent working relationships with our University partners and their lecturers.  You will be required to deliver teaching at weekends and evenings alongside guidance learning.

London

Lecturer in Banking and Finance  

Zero Hour Contract £50 per hour (Inc. holiday pay)    

London Campus   

About our role: As Lecturer you will be responsible for the student progress and academic achievement. Of particular interest are experienced lecturers at Levels 5-7 in Banking and Finance.

Your focus: As a Lecturer in our Faculty you will have the ability to:            

Plan, prepare, teach/deliver modules and support student’s learning on a range of programmes and related subject areas

Provide guidance, support and tutorship for student groups and individuals as appropriate.

Meet partnership and internal quality assurance processes in relation to programmes

Develop and grow relationships with partnership organisations.

Carry out academic administration duties as required

Maintain personal and professional development in line with agreed appraisal and development programme in order to enhance personal knowledge and contribution to relevant activities. 

Bring your experience: Applicants should have suitable and relative teaching experience and should hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in a relevant subject area. PhD holders with current publications are welcomed. A teaching qualification and membership of the HEA would be advantageous.

Your Learning & Development with QA, how can we support you? Naturally you will have a comprehensive Induction Programme organised and you will be introduced to various internal teams and stakeholders. You will attend our well received Company Orientation Programme and of course complete our mandatory e-learning training.  Being a training and education provider, your continuous Learning and Development is of huge importance to us and as an individual contributor, we can agree a suitable Pathway to achieve your goals and aspirations.          

Our Company: At QAHE you will be surrounded by staff who love teaching and prioritise the student experience. We specialise in teaching as our main focus and ensuring a good experience for the learner is the number one priority for the team.

Perhaps the most significant difference visible on campus is that traditional universities tend to be quite empty (of academic staff) as lecturers spend much less time in the office. There is a friendly and supportive atmosphere here at QAHE with typically far more team-working, promoted in part by more regular staff attendance on campus and in the staff offices.

Some potential candidates will find this, and the emphasis on teaching rather than research, very attractive. Academic staff in traditional universities of all ranks are placed under significant demand for research outputs and so have to balance a teaching load and the associated administration with their research obligations. To some this feels like an impossible burden (particularly when expectations around consultancy are added).

The management hierarchy at QAHE (year heads, deputy course managers and so on) creates opportunities for course management and career progression at QAHE and these types of responsibilities are genuinely devolved in a way that is typically uncommon in other HEIs.
