Ada, the National College for Digital Skills, is looking for an excellent Computer Science Teacher for our 6th form college, which opened in Tottenham Hale in September 2016. 

Ada is the first new Further Education college to open in 23 years and was the first of the new National Colleges announced by David Cameron in December 2014. Our Founding Industry Partners include Deloitte, IBM and King Games and our Patron is Baroness Martha Lane Fox. We offer A-levels but also provide cross-disciplinary and project based opportunities for our students to develop skills needed for successful careers.

With Ada, students can learn relevant digital skills to pursue their dream jobs in tech. We are a unique community which puts computer programming at the heart of everything we do. Our students are the future game changers: challenging the norm, excited by change, and resilient in the face of adversity.

The digital industry is experiencing epic growth but there is a talent shortage. Over 130,000 tech jobs are available each year in the UK but students are leaving education without sufficient knowledge and experience to get the job. We want to change this.

We are determined to remove the glass ceiling for women and individuals from low-income backgrounds in the tech industry. Everyone, from any background, is entitled to a quality education and a better future. Our community is united by digital so we work closely with Haringey Council and the local community to ensure the inclusion extends beyond the walls of Ada.

The ideal candidate will be innovative and curious with clear expertise in the teaching and learning of Computer Science.

  • Salary £26,931 – £45,792 dependent on experience.
  • Deadline: Wednesday 21st March, 12pm. 
  • Interviews: W/C 26th March.
  • Please email any enquiries to: jobs@ada.ac.uk

Ada is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of students and expect that all staff and volunteers also share this commitment.  An Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check will be carried out for all positions.
