We are inviting applications from passionate, motivated people to join the MK:U education team, working on our fast-growing Degree Apprenticeship courses in data and digital, particularly our hugely successful Cyber Security Technical Professional course. 

About the Role

Cyber security and digital technology are exciting and fast-growing areas of MK:U’s education. This role is an opportunity to join the team at an early stage and to help us shape the future of education in this field. The successful applicant will divide their time between developing and delivering modules on MK:U courses using our distinctive Problem-Based Learning approach (we’ll provide training for you) and supporting Course Leads in the management of our digital and data apprenticeships, including the Cyber Security Technical Professional degree apprenticeship, as well as the Cyber pathway on our very successful Digital and Technology Solutions course.

We welcome enquiries about part time working including from those wanting to combine a part-time consulting career with an opportunity to help develop the next generation of cyber skills.  

About you

We are seeking people to join the team who are as a passionate as we are about Cyber security and digital technology and who believe, as we do, that we need a lot more people who can bring these skills to the workplace. These technologies are developing so rapidly that we need new streams of talent. As educators, our job is to make Cyber security and digital technology exciting to study as well as making sure it’s relevant and applicable to the jobs of today and of the future.

You will be excited about making education relevant to the digital economy and gripped by the challenge of making it understandable and fun to study. You will prize teamwork and value your colleagues’ skills and knowledge. You will be interested in how problem-based learning can be used to ensure that education is relevant to the workplace and open to the idea that we can blur the boundary between ‘work’ and ‘education’ because learning takes place in both contexts. You will be motivated by helping your students to succeed in their careers.

You will, most likely, have undergraduate education experience in a subject matter related to Cyber Security, Digital and/or Technology Solutions. Alternatively, you may have postgraduate education experience with evidence of educational innovation. You will have an advanced degree in your subject area (Masters or above) and will either hold or be working towards a qualification/recognition in education (e.g. a Postgraduate certificate or AdvanceHE recognition).

To be successful in this role you will be comfortable with change, willing to work flexibly, and open to new ways of doing things. Importantly, you will be able to collaborate with and influence people and build relationships quickly, and you will be eager to play a full role in the fast-moving and exciting MK:U project.

*Please note that due to the nature of this position, any offer of employment will be subject to a satisfactory DBS check
