What to expect
The coding that we teach at Coder College ranges from the beginner to advanced coder. We deal with a lot of first time coders so being able to break down introductions and explain concepts is an important skill. Coding knowledge (while not essential) is desirable. We will ask all successful applicants to take the time to familiarise themselves with the coding language/course that will be covered during the relevant course.
Hours (and location) may vary from After School, Evenings, Weekends and especially School Holidays.
Working with kids means that you’ll need to expect the unexpected. You’ll be responsible for their safety and well-being, so bring your empathy and common sense, along with your passion to ensure that every child has the best experience. All Coder College staff must have a Working with Vulnerable People’s card.
