Codecool is a growing network of international coding schools in the EU. Our mission is to reinvent IT education and solve the ever growing IT talent gap of companies by giving coding careers for a wide range of people. Codecool is already present in 4 countries (Hungary, Poland, Romania & Austria). We changed the lives of more than 2000 students through coding by providing trainings and jobs for them.
We are currently looking for mentors who will join our Krakow or Warsaw team and be part of our courses!
You will work in a hybrid mode: most of the time you can work from the comfort of your home (if you wish), but every other week we will need you in our Krakow or Warsaw office.
You will work closely with your team leader, other mentors from all our locations, the local country manager, team members and external partners. But on a daily basis your focus will be on our students!
👉Supervising and enhancing existing learning/programming projects of our students
👉Mentoring – not preaching. Help students learn via interactive workshops and be available to support and guide them while they are solving practical challenges in project-based tasks and other projects. They will learn concepts and theory via self-study.
👉Learning and following the tried-and-tested Codecool mastery-based learning model, demand-based curriculum and growth mindset approach. Your ideas are welcome, we believe in continuous improvement. But you don’t need to reinvent the wheel – we already have successfully working models and processes for you at hand.
