Opportunities

Want to join the Fire Tech team? We have a variety of fun & meaningful work opportunities available teaching kids and teens in STEM subjects all over the UK. Whether it be a couple of hours during the week or on the weekend, or joining us at our Summer camps and other week long courses- we have lots of flexible roles available!

"As well as teaching the kids, you learn a lot yourself. Seeing your colleague teach software that you've never seen before makes you think- that looks cool, I could do that!"

Marisol, Python Tutor

“I never really had anyone who was interested in technology to look up to when I was younger. It’s nice to be in a position where I can inspire younger people interested in technology to pursue their passions.”

George, Unity Tutor

"Being a Lead Teacher is all of the best bits of teaching; creative kids, engaging content & a fun learning environment all rolled into one!"

Anne, Lead Teacher

Frequently Asked Questions

General

What locations can I teach?

We operate throughout the UK but those locations include: London, Surrey, Reading & Oxfordshire, Cambridge, Manchester, Bristol, Edinburgh, High Wycombe, Ascot and Winchester (more locations TBA 2020).

What’s the difference between a residential camp and a day camp?

At our residential camps both tutors and students stay on site, all accommodation & meals are provided and pay is higher due to the bigger time commitment. At our day camps no accommodation/meals are provided- we all head home at the end of the day!

Do I need a DBS certificate & reference?

Yes, you will need a DBS certificate before you start working for us, however Fire Tech will provide & cover the costs of that check for you. You just need to be able to supply evidence that you have a UK address & meet the ID requirements (we will guide you through this). You will also need personal/professional references for us to check. If at the point of application you are waiting for them to confirm that you can use them as a referee, please lodge your application anyway and send through the reference details to opportunities@firetechcamp.com

Do you have any job opportunities overseas?

Yes we sometimes have awesome overseas opportunities for our tutors and teachers! We have sent people to the likes of France, Antigua, The Seychelles & Gibraltar, just to name a few!

I have more questions!

Feel free to give us a call on 02039507310, email opportunities@firetechcamp.com or chat to our Customer service team on our LiveChat- we are always happy to answer your questions!

Tutor Info

What is the Tutor pay rate?

For our 5 day courses pay is between £400-£475 depending on the course hours, for our Weekend or After School Club sessions (1.5-2 hours) pay is £40 per session with opportunity for bonus if certain amount of sessions taught.

What is the time requirement?

For our week long courses they either run 9am-5pm or 10am- 4pm with the kids (but you’ll need to get there earlier to set up, and to have team debrief/pack down at the end of the day).

What is the difference between a Tutor and the Lead Teacher Role?

Our tutors teach our courses and need to have studied what they are teaching to the students at a university level. Our Lead Teachers must have in depth teaching experience with children (qualifications preferred), they oversee the running of the camp, are the Safeguarding & Paediatric Officers on site. They are responsible in making sure that everyone (students, parents & staff) are having a great Fire tech experience!

What training is provided?

Fire Tech will train you in how to teach our curriculum & deliver our pedagogy to children, Child Safeguarding, how to deliver a fantastic learning experience to our students and to be a great Fire Tech member! If you are a Lead teacher you will also get Paediatric First Aid Training & further Safeguarding training.

What kind of courses will I teach?

Depending on what you are/have studied at University it could be anything across coding, robotics, electronics, digital music production, design etc. Don’t worry- we don’t make you teach anything that we don’t think you could handle- ie. you would not be teaching a Teen Python course unless you have learnt it to a satisfactory level!
