Facilitate at Code for Cape Town | 2017
Code4CT classes typically have 18-24 Grade 10 and 11 female learners. Classes are lead by a Lead Facilitator who is supported by a team of other facilitators. We use a blended classroom format whereby content is delivered largely through online videos so that the teaching team focuses on facilitating discussions and activities.

Learners work through online exercises and facilitators are on demand to answer questions. A facilitator’s role is to motivate, encourage and guide. A facilitator’s role is not to give every answer to learners, but rather to stimulate critical thinking and effective problem solving by guiding learners toward asking better questions that will lead them to solutions. Facilitators are role models to our young learners and are expected to share their experience as students in STEM study fields.

Responsibilities of a facilitator:
+ Assist the Lead Facilitator in teaching coding classes
+ Assist in assessing and recording learning outcomes
+ Ensure the smooth running of classes: catering logistics, allocate transport stipends, communicate with learners who are late/absent, be responsible for having emergency contact details of all learners in the case of an emergency, handle petty cash)

Requirements of a facilitator:
+ Be enrolled in a STEM field that includes at least one programming course
+ Have working knowledge of using HTML, CSS and JavaScript to create websites and mobile applications
+ Prior tutoring experience/ experience working in a team preferred
+ Provide police clearance
+ Attend the prescribed Code4CT training prior to your first tutoring session
+ Tutors can be male or female (male tutors must be over 21 years old)
