Teaching Assistant - Primary Years, part-time+; start 2024-25

    Are you passionate about working with 5-12 year olds? Do you have a natural connection with kids and are not yet a teacher? This may be the role for you ...

    Learnlife is seeking a Learning Guide Assistant to support the Primary Years Program in Castelldefels. 

    The start date is after summer in the end of August 2024. 

    Learnlife’s mission is to create a paradigm shift in learning worldwide. We are creating a new learning model that empowers happy, lifelong learners, and is responsive to the needs and preferences of today’s and future generations. Get a glimpse of how we learn here.

    Role overview:

    • This is not a traditional school. There are no set classes, learners are grouped in multi-age programme groups, and there is no purchased curriculum.  
    • Our learning team co-designs learning experiences, facilitates nature- and discovery-based workshops, provides one-on-one mentoring, and collaborates with our many partners to craft a purpose-inspired, experiential and community-engaged learning experience for all our learners.
    • In this role you will support the learning guides in a smooth day-to-day experience with learners.
    • We are early in the stages of our Eco Hub’s Primary Years Programme! So we are looking for someone who is collaborative, communicates well, understands the importance of strong personal relationships, and who thrives in a fast-paced, innovative and agile environment.

    In your role, you will: 

    • Assist learners through daily learning experiences, as overseen by the Learning Guides, to track their growth, needs, and individualized planning. 
      Work collaboratively with the learning team to assist in learning experiences in particular areas for all three programme groups: Adventurers (ages 5-7), Discoverers (ages 8 & 9), and Pioneers (ages 10-12).
    • Maintain a healthy culture and climate for learners, promoting confidence, agency, and self-management skills as they become self-directed learners. Recognize when these areas are lacking and provide the support needed, in partnership with the rest of the learning team and the family.
    • Oversee supervision and play opportunities for learners during free play, snack, and lunch.
    • Participate in regular planning, collaboration, and professional development with the EH learning team throughout intensive design phases between cycles. During lengthier summer design sessions, work in collaboration with the Urban Hub team.
    • Coordinate, as needed, with the larger Learnlife community, including operations, finance, and admissions.
    • Set an example to learners of our community (Eco Hub) and company (Learnlife) values. 

     You bring:

    • Minimum 2 years experience working with 6-12 year olds.
    • C2 level of English is a must, Spanish is very useful.
    • You already reside close to the Learnlife Eco Hub in Castelldefels.
    • Ability to quickly connect and build trust with children.
    • Ability to work collaboratively and creatively in a fast-paced, agile environment
    • Willingness to learn from failure, ask for help when needed, embracing an iterative process.

     If you are up for your next challenge, please apply with:

    • Your CV, including a minimum of three references.
    • A short 1 minute video that introduces you, your interest in the position and your passion as an educator. PLEASE upload your video as a URL in the provided space.

    At Learnlife, our culture of creativity and innovation is predicated on a diverse mix of minds, backgrounds and experiences. We are committed to creating an inclusive community where difference is valued. Everyone is unique and celebrated at Learnlife. All members of our community--families, learners, core team, partners, investors--feel safe to be their authentic selves.
