Our College

MPW Cambridge was founded in 1987 and is part of the MPW group of independent fifth and sixth form colleges. Our college is situated in attractive Victorian premises on the south side of Cambridge city centre with around 220 term-time GCSE and A level students on roll each year. We offer a broad range of subjects and have a tradition of expertise in intensive, exam-oriented courses. At our most recent Ofsted inspection in November 2016, MPW Cambridge was rated “outstanding” in all assessment areas. In Autumn 2017 the Department of Education ranked MPW Cambridge in the top 1% of all schools offering A levels in the UK for student progression, coming 26th out of over 2700 schools. Taking out schools that only sit fewer than 30 A level exams each year puts us in 8th position.

Our Curriculum

We pride ourselves on being able to offer a flexible curriculum to suit students requiring one- and two-year GCSE and A level programmes with regular testing, a maximum class size of 9 students and an outstanding pastoral system to support students and teachers alike. 

The Position

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and experienced Computer Science teacher for 3 hours a week split over two days with a proven track record of teaching success to join the department in January. Candidates will need to have experience with  the AQA exam board at A level and should be able to teach many programming languages, including C#.   The successful candidate will need to demonstrate an understanding of excellent teaching practice.
