Head of English / English Teacher

Role Overview

Step into the future of education as MyEdSpace’s dedicated Head of English. You would be responsible for Key Stages 2, 3 and 4. This position is a full-time role with ~6-12 lessons delivered per week.

What Is MyEdSpace?

MyEdSpace is revolutionising UK education! Our mission? World-class education that’s accessible and affordable. We are an EdTech Startup that provides affordable, high-quality online teaching for KS2, KS3, GCSE, and A-level students across the UK. We combine world-class teachers with an award-winning tech platform to provide a more engaging and modern approach to education. Our courses work out to be 10-20x cheaper than available alternatives. We currently teach c.2,000 students. We are now expanding into other subjects!

MyEdSpace is backed by some of the best investors in the UK, including one of the leading EdTech Venture Capital funds in the world. We are experiencing rapid growth and we want you to join us as our next superstar teacher.

Differences vs. A Traditional Teaching Role?

Like a normal teaching role, you will be responsible for designing and delivering your subject’s curriculum via interactive lessons, multiple times per week. We just do this via online live streams instead of in person.

Here’s the twist… We turn you into an educational influencer on social media. For context, our Maths teacher currently has over 1.7 million social media followers. As such, you will be a leading face of the company and need to be comfortable building this online presence. You will partake in marketing efforts, including building social media content and being featured in adverts to promote MyEdSpace and your course. You will report directly to our Founding Team.

If you’re excited to change from a traditional school environment to a startup, where you can use technology to make a larger-scale impact, we want to hear from you!

  • Plan and deliver engaging online lessons via live streams – interact with your class and answer questions as they arise
