A little more about us:

At QAHE you will be surrounded by staff who love teaching and prioritise the student experience. We specialise in teaching as our main focus and ensuring a good experience for the learner is the number one priority for the team.

Perhaps the most significant difference visible on campus is that traditional universities tend to be quite empty (of academic staff) as lecturers spend much less time in the office. There is a friendly and supportive atmosphere here at QAHE with typically far more team-working, promoted in part by more regular staff attendance on campus and in the staff offices.

Some potential candidates will find this, and the emphasis on teaching rather than research, very attractive.

We power the success of tomorrow – shaping the next generation of technologists, leaders and innovators.

On top of that? We’re ambitious – we hold ourselves to high standards and set ambitious targets. The result? We’ve grown revenue by over 300% in the last decade. So there’s plenty of opportunity for you to fulfil your career potential with us.
