Role Models

Main Duties

Role Models complements traditional academic education by delivering online & offline courses for 3-15 year olds that develop young peoples’ skills in leadership, confidence, resilience, creative problem solving, collaboration and growth mindset. These skills really impact the everyday lives of the young people we work with…

“It’s given her the opportunity to really think about what makes her different, why that’s ok and what she should feel proud and confident about. She is learning that she can control her mind. Hugely powerful and important for mental health.”

What does being a Role Model involve?

We are looking for inspiring people, from all backgrounds and walks of life, to join our team of Role Models; people who are passionate about both education and social & emotional wellbeing. Our Role Models are a diverse bunch but are often part-time Role Models and full-time creatives. Our courses and lessons, both online and offline, are enjoyed by children around the world, giving you the flexibility to work around other commitments, all with competitive pay. [Unfortunately, we can only accept applicants based in UK, U.S, Canada, New Zealand or Australia at this time].

  • MOST IMPORTANTLY: Serious fun and satisfaction! The chance to have a rewarding and flexible ad hoc job that you actually enjoy – all whilst inspiring children!
  • The opportunity to work abroad on our International Life Skills Courses in countries such as Saudi Arabia, Singapore, China to name a few
  • The opportunity to earn money from home if you deliver our online courses or sessions

Skills and Experience

We’re looking for people who are energetic, engaging, and curious. Our Role Models are adept at combining educational rigour with fun, to create active learning environments that children love. Experience of working with children and young people is desirable, as is experience of working with groups – either online or offline.

  • You will write an end of session email which gets sent to the children’s parents, summarising the session
  • You will be responsible for the progress and development of the children in your group

Delivering our offline courses:

  • You will deliver the content of our Life Skills Courses to children, which will involve sharing information, leading discussions, and facilitating games and challenges
  • You will also liaise with parents to give verbal feedback and complete written reports for the children you work with
  • You will need experience in managing small to large groups of children on your own, as you are expected to supervise groups up to a maximum of 15 children
  • Teaching/mentoring experience (whether qualified or not) is desirable
