About us

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based educational charity that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. We want more people to be able to harness the power of computing and digital technologies for work, to solve problems that matter to them, and to express themselves creatively.

Established in 2008 and first known for our product — the wildly successful Raspberry Pi computer — the Foundation has developed educational content and programmes that are helping millions of people learn computing and digital making.

In October 2015, we merged with Code Club, followed in May 2017 by a second merger with the CoderDojo Foundation. Together we now represent one of the largest, sustained global efforts to help young people learn computing and digital making. You can read more about our mission, values, and goals in our 2018–2020 strategy.

The role

The Foundation is part of a consortium that has secured more than £82 million in government funding to make sure every child in every school in England has access to a world-leading computing education. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the way we teach computing and computer science.

As part of this work, we are undertaking a ‘Gender Balance in Computing’ research project to explore new initiatives to enable more girls to engage with and study computing. The project will include the development of online learning materials, resources, teacher training events, and collaborations with partner organisations to run programmes in schools. We are now looking for a Learning Manager who will help our team deliver this exciting project.

Reporting to the Director of Informal Learning, you will be responsible for developing a range of learning materials to support the interventions we have planned. You’ll be passionate about broadening access to computing education across the UK, and you’ll have a good understanding of computing education in schools.

We strive to make the Foundation a place where talented people who care about our mission can do the best work of their careers. We have a flexible and collaborative approach to all aspects of our work. If you’re the right person for the job, we’ll make it work for you, and you can be confident that you’ll be working with an exceptional team.
