The role will see you provide classroom support and instruction to Ada’s digital apprentices. Support Lecturers at Ada work collaboratively with full-time and contracted teaching staff to ensure successful delivery of our courses. You will cover and expand upon the curriculum, with the opportunity to design and deliver your own workshops in topics that interest you.
Lecturing staff generally find Ada apprentices to be mature and highly motivated students; they are chosen by top-tier employers (from Google and Facebook to Hackney Council) and assigned to real world, cutting edge projects. The full-day schedule means that lecturers and support lecturers have the opportunity to get to know the apprentices they work with, and the Ada experience resembles a blend of the best elements of university courses and coding bootcamps.
We offer two Apprenticeship Degrees, which can be taken over the course of two years (providing a Foundation Degree) or three years (providing a full BSc equivalent). Our established Degree Apprenticeship in Digital Innovation gives students a solid foundation in Software Development practices and principles. This Apprenticeship program includes module choices from the second year, allowing students to specialise further in Technical, Design or Entrepreneurial pathways. Our new Degree Apprenticeship in Data Analytics and Visualisation will allow students to gain a comprehensive understanding of Data Science.
Further apprenticeship programs are also being planned to ensure that Ada remains a pioneer of innovative technology education.
