You'll submit a written application when our window has opened for prospective instructors
Part of being an instructor includes giving feedback on our curriculum and syllabus. We are currently beginning the process of revising our material for possible future cohorts. In the meantime, you can see our Cohort 1 syllabus here. We’d really appreciate any thoughts, comments, questions, concerns, and general feedback! We like all our instructors to be informed of the curriculum to ensure smooth transitions from instructor to instructor.
We’ll schedule an informal conversation to discuss your availability, topics you’d like to teach, compensation, and some responsibilities and expectations for the class. By the end of this call, we’ll have a good idea of where you’ll fit into the schedule. You can view the week over week breakdown here that we’ll be populating. When you’re able, setup some time to chat with us here.
If you made it through all of the steps above, we’ll ultimately come to a final decision on your acceptance and a proposed hourly rate.
After a decision is made, we’ll expect your assigned weeks on the curriculum to be populated with lesson plans, projects, homework, and any other relevant prep work before the classes begin (ideally 2-3 weeks before the first day of class).
Most instructors will need to devote time both in class while they are teaching, as well as outside of class as they prepare for lessons, grade work, and so on. Depending on how many weeks / modules you teach, this can vary.

Acting as a key member of the in-classroom team, you would be working alongside our instructors and mentors to help run class and assist students. More specificially, you will:
Unfortunately, we are generally unable to offer any sort of internship, co-op, CTP or school-related credit to our TA's due to the low hour commitment that they hold. That being said, we love having students of higher education as TA's, and think that your positions as students offer unique and valuable experience to our program. Just know that your time as a TA at Careers in Code will not count for school credit.
We are not currently in an active search for TA's. Check back here and on our social media for more details about the application window as they are released!
