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 over £78 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.

Working with our partners, STEM Learning and the British Computer Society, we will establish a new National Centre for Computing Education, and deliver a comprehensive programme of support for computing teachers in primary and secondary schools. We are now looking for a Learning Manager with expertise and interest in post-16 education as it relates to computer science to help us deliver this exciting programme.

Reporting to the Senior Learning Manager (Post 16 Education), you will work in a team responsible for creating, collating, and managing learning materials for A Level computer science. You will work closely with developers and researchers implementing the resources, so you’ll need to be an excellent team player.

The ideal candidate will be confident in their knowledge of computer science and also have the ability to approach it from a student’s perspective. You’ll be passionate about improving quality of, and access to, A-Level computer science education across the UK and have a good understanding of computing education within 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.
