Students on our blended programmes benefit from flexible daytime and evening delivery and our distance learning distances interact with our academics through a variety of online platforms.
Main duties and responsibilities for all grades:
- Teaching and training activities (both face to face and online for our blended and distance learning students).

We would like to hear from applicants who are excellent communicators who can explain Computing concepts to a variety of audiences and inspire our students as they engage with our courses and modules.
Our undergraduate and postgraduate Computing programmes include modules on Programming, Databases, Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, Ethical Hacking, Information Security, Data Analysis, Cloud Infrastructure, IT Project Management, Systems Analysis and Ethics in IT. You will need to demonstrate an ability to deliver excellent and engaging teaching across a range of theory-based and practical modules and be comfortable with languages and platforms such as Java, MySQL, PHP, Anaconda, AWS/Azure, Python and SPSS across levels 4 to 7.
