Oak is an online classroom and resource hub created by teachers, for teachers in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is a free platform, with no sign-ups or logins required. Oak will provide around 10,000 lessons for the entire 2020/21 academic year, as a safety net for schools and pupils while in-person learning faces continued disruption and uncertainty. You can take a look at our website to find out more about who we are and what we do.
The majority of Oak's lesson resources will be created over summer by our existing team of teachers. We are now recruiting for other core team roles from September, to help us see Oak through the next academic year. We need a team that can maintain and improve the platform, support the continuous improvement of lesson content on the site, support schools and parents to use the materials and help us to build and run a sustainable organisation.
We are a very new organisation, set up at speed in April 2020. Whilst we are new, our reach to date has been significant (19 million lessons in the first three months). That means we still feel like a start up and we’re looking for colleagues who can work with ambiguity, love a challenge and who roll their sleeves up. At Oak, everyone needs to pitch in.
If you are up for the challenge of helping us build something new and care passionately about supporting teachers and pupils - particularly those from low income families - we would love to hear from you!
We are particularly keen to receive applications from candidates from historically under-represented and minority groups.
