This is an exciting opportunity for someone who has a passion about working with young children AND technology!
We require an enthusiastic Nursery ICT Tutor to deliver our award winning computer lessons to pre-school children at independent nursery schools in the FINCHLEY/EDGWARE/HENDON area. One week you could be teaching children how to use a digital microscope and another week using the computer to teach the children about recycling.

You will be required to travel to 4/5 different nurseries per week working mornings starting no later than 9.30am, earlier if possible. Most sessions will finish by lunchtime but you may have to work into the afternoon with a 2.30pm finish. Hours are approx 10-12 hours a week in total.
If you are returning to work after a career break, we would love to hear from you - please note enthusiasm and passion is more important than experience as full training will be provided. As this is a mobile job - YOU WILL NEED TO BE A CAR DRIVER. Successful candidates will be required to undergo an Enhanced DBS check. We offer competitive rates of pay.

Family: Husband and 2 daughters
How often do you work?
I work in nursery every day from Monday - Friday, but some of our tutors work just 4 mornings per week. The company are pretty flexible, but the minimum number of sessions are 4 per week.
How does the job fit around your family life?
I go to my nurseries straight from dropping my girls at school and I am always there to pick them up - and have time to prepare some food before I leave to go on the school run.
How much time do you commit?
I work approximately 10-12 hours per week.
Where do you carry out your work?
I go into different nurseries everyday as I have been given my own set nurseries. This is lovely as I get to know the staff at these nurseries and also build up great relationships with the children that I work with.
Do you need a car?
Yes as we need to carry a trolley bag of kit with us to different nurseries which would be difficult to do by public transport.
Do you get support/training?
We have a comprehensive training programme before we venture off to our own nurseries. This training covers everything from safeguarding to how to deliver lessons to the children. We also meet as a whole team once a term which is lovely as we often do some team training to improve on our knowledge.
Would you recommend this opportunity to other mums?
Definitely - we have such a great team. We are all working mums so totally understand how difficult it is sometimes to juggle work and family life. Wendy, the owner of the company, is so accommodating and understanding. It's a very rewarding fun job and working with little children and watching their little faces light up with excitement when it's Click IT! day is so wonderful!
Do you advertise?
Yes we do advertise within the nursery schools and in Families Magazine as well.
Are there any downsides to the role?
No not really as it fits so well into my family life - sometimes we have to do open days at our nurseries which are between 4-6pm so that we can promote what we do to new parents. But we get plenty of notice and we only do these once or twice a year.
