Instructor Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in teaching a class for the City of Irvine. We are always looking for quality, dedicated instructors to offer a variety of programs to our residents and surrounding community.

The best contract instructor candidates are individuals who combine a sincere interest in community service with a desire to supplement their existing income. Please note, workshops or classes designed to sell or recommend products from your business is prohibited. We recommend reviewing past issues of Inside Irvine to verify a similar program is not already offered. The standard City split for contract classes is 50/50 when class is held at a City facility or as defined by contract. 

Visit the City of Irvine's City Jobs page and search "Contract Class Instructor."

Consult the table below for course date ranges and application deadlines, which are based on print deadlines and the review process. Timelines are subject to change; check back before submitting an application.
