  1. Our bilingual school (German/English) offers a vibrant and culturally diverse community of values with people from all around the world.
  2. Responsibility, independence, respect, tolerance, self-confidence and gender equality are values that we live by every single day.
  3. Our comprehensive, modern educational approach aims to motivate students to learn actively and independently.
  4. Class sizes are small, usually no more than 24 students per class.
  5. We are a relatively small team and a open and caring school community. Fostering a pleasant and friendly learning and working atmosphere is a matter close to our heart.
  6. We place great emphasis on teamwork! Support teaching in more than half of the lessons in almost all subjects and peer observations mean professional cooperation and more time to meet the individual needs of the students.
  7. We value our entire team as professionals. This means teachers and Erziehers are equals within our school.
  8. Newcomers at Platanus Schule Berlin will of course receive our full attention and support. Each new colleague will have a mentor within the school to help them navigate and adjust to our school.
  9. We will support you in learning German or English.
  10. Your professional development is important to us: We encourage participation in internal and external professional development courses by supporting you financially as well as making it organizationally possible for you to attend courses.
  11. You are welcome to implement your own ideas and personal interests in a varied and diverse school life – in lessons, in Ganztag and our holiday programmes.
  12. We are open to your constructive feedback on everyday school life and appreciate your life and professional experience in our joint work.
  13. We offer Erzieher*innen extra planning time for offers and clubs, as well as a reduction in lesson hours for time spent as an Class Erzieher*in.
  14. A personal work laptop, a Platanus e-mail address, reliable IT support, stable WLAN and a spacious, well-equipped area for our employees create optimal working conditions.
  15. Working time is living time! We try to respond to individual needs and take into account your own personal work-life balance when creating timetables. In addition, we offer the children of our employees preferential admission to our Platanus Kindergarten or to the lara.kita, our cooperation partner. Of course, there is also the possibility of admission to Platanus Schule Berlin, subject to availability of school places as well as language and academic qualifications.
  16. Remuneration is paid according to our in-house tariff with 6 pay grade levels corresponding to those in the public sector (pay group S8a).
  17. Mistakes happen and you can always feel safe with us – because we maintain an open Fehlerkultur with respectful interaction with each other.
  18. Diversity@Platanus: Regardless of age, gender, origin or religion, or other personal characteristics, we welcome all people who respect our values.
  19. Sustainability and environmental protection play a major role in our everyday work. We try to meet our responsibility for future generations and to make our educational facilities as climate neutral as possible.
  20. We simply enjoy working together!

We can think of a lot more reasons, but we would like to share them with you in a face-to-face meeting and get to know you.

If you have strong leadership skills, organisational and communication skills and enthusiasm for educational work, we look forward to welcoming you to our team. Become part of our school and actively shape the education and upbringing of our students, with approx. 6 to 10 hours per week directly in the school classes, either in afternoon care, in clubs, in the class council, on project days or according to your own ideas.
