Life Skills Creator, GT School (Remote) - $400,000/year USD

Job ID: 4672

Description

High school graduates who can score a 1600 on the SAT but can’t take personal responsibility for their choices? Not on our watch. 

You’ve seen the horror stories: gifted and talented young people who lack the basic life skills to navigate adulthood independently. GT School is here to change that. Not only do we believe gifted & talented (GT) students are capable of performing at the highest level academically, we want to ensure they have the core skills to succeed in life. Skills like grit, determination, and time management are essential!

Join us to curate a fun, engaging, fully-remote life skills curriculum. In this role, you will identify the life skills students need to learn, deconstructing these broad, vague terms into specific, concrete skills to master. Then, you’ll find or create a curriculum that passes rigorous evaluation standards and adapt it for a remote learning environment. Finally, you’ll create innovative, real-world scenarios where students can demonstrate their mastery of each component skill.

If this sounds like a challenge that’s perfect for you, apply today!

What you will be doing

  • Identify and develop life skills programs
  • Deploy the program in a remote environment
  • Test students for mastery learning

What you will NOT be doing

  • Delivering the life skills program yourself - we believe learning works best when it’s self-paced and student-led.
  • Developing a series of lectures, readings, or videos - we believe learning happens through hands-on activities that are so fun kids forget they’re learning!
  • Designing a program where everyone can succeed on the first try - we believe kids value challenges as much as adults do, so you’ll design assessments that have high quality standards and allow kids to fail forward.

Key Responsibilities

Ensure GT School students master the life skills necessary for success.

Candidate Requirements

  • Possess an advanced college degree (Masters, PhD, etc.) in any subject
  • 5+ years of experience creating trainings, programs, or curriculum
  • Passion for life skills education
  • Personal experience with the needs and motivations of gifted & talented students - either you were one, are raising one, or have extensive professional experience working with this population
