Your role

Your main task and your focus will be on our students! Supporting them, mentoring them, coaching them, doing everything you can in order to help them to gather the knowledge to be successfully chosen for a junior position.

Your tasks

πŸ‘‰ mentoring – not preaching. Helping students learn via interactive workshops and being available to support and guide them while they are solving practical challenges in project-based tasks. They will learn concepts and theory via self-study;

πŸ‘‰ learning and following the tried-and-tested Codecool mastery-based learning model, demand-based curriculum, and growth mindset approach. We have successfully working models and processes for you at hand, however your ideas are welcome, we truly believe in continuous improvement.

  • Week 2 (SI+ review+ start TW): 4 hours self-study during the week, 16 fixed hours with mentors on Saturday and Sunday (this would cover SI reviews, workshops/live codings/dojos and then starting the team project in the second half of Sunday while mentors are still there)
  • Week 3 (TW = teamwork, +demo+prepare SI): 4 hours teamwork during the week, 16 fixed hours with mentors on Saturday and Sunday (this could cover working on team projects while mentors are there on Saturday, then on Sunday demos, TW reviews, retros and then preparation for the solo projects with workshops/live codings)
