Reach Cambridge is looking for PhD and Post-Doctorate students to teach on our summer school programmes in July and August.
We are looking for candidates who are lively, friendly and work well with teenagers to teach on these exciting programmes which aim to give students an introduction to their favourite subject at University level through engaging and interactive workshop-style sessions. The students are from all over the world, and are aged between 14 and 18 (mostly 16 & 17). They speak fluent English and are often high-achievers.
Teachers are encouraged to base their teaching on the areas which particularly interest them, and are given considerable autonomy in session planning. Teachers are not expected to supervise students outside of teaching hours – we have a separate supervisor team. Many of our teachers from previous years have commented on how helpful this experience was for their careers, whether academic or professional. Candidates with teaching experience will be preferred.
For our English Literature and Computer Science & Maths courses we are also looking for course coordinators. The course coordinator has overall responsibility for the course curriculum, and works closely with the teachers and Academic Coordinator to plan each aspect of the course.
DATES & HOURS
We run two summer school programmes in the summer, one in July and one in August. Exact teaching days & hours for each teacher are dependent on the course schedule devised by the coordinator. The course dates are:
JULY: Monday 29th June – Friday 17th July weekdays, 9am-1pm
AUGUST: Monday 3rd August – Friday 14th August weekdays, 9am-12pm & 2-4.30pm
Please note our Computer Science & Maths course is only running in July
Teachers: £25/hr, up to a maximum of £900
Based in Downing College & Trinity Hall, Cambridge
