Work with us

Are you a Primary or Secondary teacher?

We are looking for someone who will thrive on the challenge of sharing power with young people.

Does this hold true for you?

  • You want to be part of a setting where children are at the helm of their own education.

  • You are comfortable inspiring young people rather than directing them.

  • You are curious about the world and constantly learning.You ask questions instead of assuming the answers.

  • You are comfortable not knowing all the answers… even in front of a group of kids!

  • You play. You have fun playing.

  • You can use humour to bond with kids and make them feel at ease.

  • You spend time outdoors and enjoy being in nature.

  • You can be empathetic in the face of adversity.

  • You are willing to work towards an unconditional approach (no punishment or reward, including praise).

  • You find it easy to be flexible and change plans when something unexpected happens.

  • You see yourself as a problem-solver.

We will greatly value your experience in:

  • Project based learning

  • Progressive, inquiry-based education

  • Making and recording observations

  • Using maths manipulatives

  • Active listening and non violent communication

  • Woodwork and maker fablabs

  • Bushcraft skills

  • Permaculture

  • Playing musical instruments of any sort (including instruments from junk)

  • Promoting social justice

Relevant qualifications, though not necessarily as a teacher –as well as a commitment to professional development– are essential. If you are not a native Spanish speaker, Spanish is not a requirement but would be an advantage.

Since we encourage age-mixed groups, there will be opportunities to work with children of all ages (3-12). This is a full time position.

What we can offer:

  • The opportunity to enjoy working in a small but highly motivated team, with children who are eager to learn, in a school community where parents are very supportive, in the beautiful city of La Laguna, Tenerife (Canary Islands).

  • We provide in-house training for continuous professional development.

  • Long-term contract.

  • Salary according to your experience and qualifications, and to the Spanish Convenio de Educación de Enseñanza Privada
