About the Role
We are looking for students who are passionate about software engineering, have experience in tutoring pre-teens or teens (other subjects are okay too), and have an entrepreneurial & startup mindset.
Why teach with us?
This unique opportunity allows you to:
"Coding + Children = My passion. First Code Academy has impacted me in such a positive manner that just two months of my time here has helped me discover this. As an instructor, I get to play with robots and learn new technology everyday and then try to pass over the skill sets to the kids. Watching them use their boundless imagination put to the test creating new apps and websites stuns me every single time and has made me realise how much potential lies within each and every child to use coding to change the world. It has been a great experience for me working (having fun) at FCA, interacting with the kids on a daily basis and learning from them as well. The environment set up for them at FCA is absolutely brilliant - they are given full authority to build whatever they want and use failure as a stepping stone to success which lines with our motto - "Done is better than perfect.""

Statistics (2015-2018 Internship)
Classroom quality is our top priority. All interns have to go through a comprehensive training program designed collaboratively by First Code lead instructors and professional educators. Through our program, each intern instructor picks up design philosophy of our programs, teaching strategies, classroom management strategies, and last but not least, technical concepts.
The entire program includes group discussion, self-study, lecture, activity, mock teaching, and shadowing in actual classrooms. The sessions will be hosted at the beginning of the internship program, and each intern instructor is expected to complete all the sessions.
Requirement: You are eager to shape the skills and minds of our next generation. You love to learn and expand knowledge in engineering and computer science. You are open minded and question the status quo. You have strong interest in software engineering, from mobile app development, to web programming, to hardware programming. You are fluent in one or more programming languages. You have previous engineering teaching experience, through a course, team training, etc.
