Code Nation is a private school that teaches software development - bootcamp style. Our courses are 12 weeks long and cover 480 hours of intensive learning for both private paying students and/or apprentices. We are expanding and have just opened for business in Chester as well as building a further 4 classrooms in Manchester.

Our next stop is Leeds and we need to hire a talented senior instructor or two for all locations.

We teach JavaScript as our core development language but we are happy if you have a background in another.

If you are a qualified teacher in either Computer Science, English, Maths or another mainstream subject but can evidence a love of software development, we can do the rest. Our current teaching staff all are active members of the software development community and regularly attend meetups, community groups and of course, code for love.

You will have amazing communication skills and be a fast learner - our courses are all written but we will expect you to enhance them and make them feel like your own. Download one of our course brochures from the Info page or go to the  Code Nation website - to get a feel for what's in store.

We are a politics and bureaucracy-free organisation, we pay appropriate salaries for those who have our "futures" destiny in their hands and most of all - we love people who love people.

We teach people with little or no experience and transform them into work ready individuals who can thrive in a modern work environment. Our curriculum covers communications skills, we bring in expert yoga and mindfulness coaches as well as local employers hungry for talent. We teach more than just code.

Our courses are fast-paced, they often start a little later in the day but continue a little later in the evening. Our teachers are not burdened with homework or marking but are expected to be constantly advancing our curriculum.

Personality and enthusiasm are of equal importance to us as software development skills - bring your A game.
