Microsoft 365 Specialist
TEDI-London is an innovative new higher education institution in London wholly focused on engineering. It is co-founded by Arizona State University, King’s College London, and UNSW Sydney.
TEDI-London’s vision is to transform engineering education to transform lives – both for students and for the users of the products they design and make.
Our mission is to attract and empower individuals and partners from diverse backgrounds and perspectives to develop the skills and confidence to create practical real-world solutions that advance how we live as a global community.
We will inspire, disrupt and transform.
A range of analyses, including the Working Futures 2 report, and forecasts on the number and type of engineering graduates in the UK by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), show that the UK will not produce enough engineers to fill expected employment demands by 2022. This shortage in engineering skills is reflected in other major reports including one from Engineering UK, which concludes that the UK will experience annual shortfalls of at least 20,000 engineers. The Royal Academy of Engineering is strongly urging the UK to develop a digitally driven and data-enabled economy. About 8% of engineering undergraduates in the UK are women, and the UK has the lowest percentage of female engineering professionals in the EU.
Market research indicates that positioning engineering in a social context is attractive to non-traditional engineering prospects. Our mission is to attract and empower individuals and partners from a range of backgrounds and perspectives. We will inspire, disrupt and transform: our alumni will have the skills and confidence to deliver practical, real-world solutions that advance how we live.
“These goals set TEDI-London apart from other engineering programmes and will enable a new kind of engineer for the 21st Century.”
Working with us and for us
So, what does this mean for us as an employer?
The people who work with us reflect our ambitions for our students. We are keen to attract potential candidates who are creative and innovative, curious and passionate about what we are trying to achieve. You will want to try new things and not be afraid to learn from the experience. You will want to collaborate with colleagues – both locally and globally. Continuous development and improvement are part of your DNA.
You might have an engineering background, no teaching experience – but can actively demonstrate the passion and the potential to be a great teacher. You want to pass on your passion and learn new skills.
You might work in a professional role elsewhere – not necessarily Higher Education and would really relish the opportunity to design and develop your role, your function and organisation. You might work in traditional Higher Education and have a drive to be part of something different. You have always wanted to do things differently but the size of your organisation, history or internal politics mean you can’t make the necessary changes quickly to take advantage of developments in the world around you.
We are developing our proposition as an employer and you can be part of shaping our culture, our values and our future as an organisation. We are already clear though – all our employees are of equal value and status, whatever role you do. Our ‘single status’ terms and conditions are being developed to reflect these aspirations.
Our employees will be equally as diverse as our student population.
