Looking to teach programming

    Hi

    I have a degree in computer science with a software development specialisation. I am a qualified java programmer and I have expertise in c sharp (.net). I am interested in teaching programming especially Object Oriented Programming. I am happy to do this part-time or maybe evenings. I would even consider a full-time career if I am suited. Does anybody have any tips on where to start? I have 5 years experience learning my subject. Money is not my goal, but I would like to be paid.

    Thanks in advance

    To teach in further education you need to have a Hdip in further education teaching, I think Marino institute are still taking applications, the course is only 2 days a week. Some institutes of further education will allow you to run 12 week part time evening courses without any formal qualification so thats and option too. Otherwise you could rent out a space or room with computers, maybe in a school or college to teach your own private classes.

    If you keep an eye out in the papers around August/early September, various third level institutions will advertise for evening lecturers. Also keep an eye on institution websites, it's a good idea to bookmark them and check them every so often.
