element-i Technido school
"I like working in the school, because it gives me the opportunity to observe every day how children enjoy learning, how interests are taken seriously and strengths are supported. Neither the students nor the teachers experience any major anxieties about the school day. Learning is based on a wonderful relationship that avoids performance pressure and is very feedback-centric."
Sports teacher / After-school activities educator
element-i Technido school
"I consider my work as an educator in an after-school activity centre at the element-i primary school to be something wonderful. It’s great to discover the work together with the children and to discover that each child is unique. I love the challenge of finding out how diverse the children’s interests are and exploring these together with them. As a qualified sports teacher, I especially enjoy doing sport with the children and seeing how they improve and gain in ambition."

„Helping children to discover the world, to pursue their own interests, to challenge themselves, to develop their personal strengths and accept responsibility for themselves and their environment is an exciting and inspiring task through which I have the opportunity to develop along with the children. Working with the element-i concept offers me both a context and the necessary freedom.“

„I have been working for element-i for ten years. At the start I was able to identify with the basic principles of this unique educational concept very quickly, and today my conviction has never been stronger that element-i is the best way to help children develop as people. My experience has been that principles and character are essential for working here successfully.“

„The sophisticated and high-grade element-i educational philosophy offers not only children the opportunity to develop freely. I too as an educator have had the feeling of developing as a person and of having the opportunity to leverage my strengths appropriately. The work our team does is always appreciated. I like that very much.“

„Accompanying and supporting children as they develop is a great responsibility, because it means actively contributing towards a positive, caring society. Being a part of enabling children to gain more and more skills and competencies, to becoming ever more confident and take pleasure in everything is a real booster for me! When working with children, it’s important to enjoy your work, to be aware of your personal value and to have and radiate a positive image of the world and humanity.“
After-school activities educator

“I am convinced that school education in Germany is in urgent need of change to account for the changes in society. Working in small mixed-age groups and the extensive project-based learning allows both technical skills and social competencies to be conveyed in equal measure and for children to be individually supported in their learning."

The FDFP – Freie Duale Fachakademie für Pädagogik
The FDFP – Freie Duale Fachakademie für Pädagogik, an independent teacher training academy, trains students to become educators at its Stuttgart and Karlsruhe facilities. Potential students have a choice of two courses: social pedagogy and youth education & foster care (only in Stuttgart). The course content is based on an educational concept that focuses on the strengths of each individual. The academy aims to produce educators who act with an acute awareness of the responsibilities placed upon them and who are ready to make decisions and stand by these decisions.
Closely linked topical blocks that alternate between theory and practice ensure that the acquired knowledge can be directly applied, allowing it to be durably retained by the students. The course lasts for three years and is full-time. Students receive a salary throughout the entire course period.
All information on the training courses of the FDFP and the ability to apply online are provided on the academy’s website.
