It is our aim to give teachers the best possible experience when using LEGO Education resources in the classroom. And we can ensure you, you will feel as great a sense of pride and achievement as the children whose lives you ultimately enrich.

Strong leader with education industry experience

In this position, you are a strong leader and collaborator with a clear perspective which strategy to go with regarding professional development and teaching. We imagine you are passionate about your field but at the same time, you are willing to push the boundaries and take on a challenge. Your qualifications:
