Technology Coach in Toronto, ON

Perfect place to start off as a new teacher
I have worked with this company for the past three years, and have enjoyed every day of it. It has helped prepare me for the classroom, and build an incredible network within the Halton District School Board.

Honest review - some good (rewarding), some not (compensation sucks)
There are things that I absolutely love about working for LEARNstyle. I love the hours working within the school system, I love my Manager, I love helping students learn and be successful, I love the work/life balance, the company culture and I love their model of building relationships with the students. What I don't love is the pay. There are no benefits and it's doubtful that there ever will be. Only salaried staff get sick days and job/pay stability as they can work from home or go to the office but for everyone else...see below: You get paid $200/day, however, this is based on seeing 6 students per day/4 if in High School. If you end up seeing less than this, then you lose pay, unless you can find replacements, which isn't always easy. During the winter, when there are bus cancellations, you don't work and therefore lose pay for that day, even though you're ready, willing and able to work. If you are sick, not only do you not get paid, but you are made to feel guilty about it because apparently, it's more important to fulfill the commitment to the Boards. Direct Managers understand this but upper management fails to recognize this and it sounds like money will always be an issue because of this lack of understanding for their front line employees. You get to go on EI for Winter break and summer break but be prepared to wait a while to get that money. You also do not get paid for PA days (so at least once/month) and you will not receive any compensation for March Break. You do not get paid for mileage and even though I was told that I would be kept in my area, I end up travelling more than when I had a full-time job that was 40 minutes away from home. And don't expect to get a raise. There is some Professional Development and company socials which are all planned and paid for by the company but you're expected to travel to their head office and you do not get paid for this travel (if you live outside of the GTA, this sucks). Actual training on the technology is non-existent. There are some programs that we have no access to, (because the company won't pay for it), but you are expected to learn it anyway, on your own time. Good luck with that! There is very little room for advancement, so this is not a good job if you are looking for professional growth. I'm not saying you won't learn anything but you can become stagnant very quickly as the work is very repetitive. There is a huge turnover rate with their frontline staff (Technology Coach) which is likely due to all of the factors listed above but Management doesn't seem to budge on any of these issues. Their HR department is a joke and very amateurish, so don't expect much help there. There is very little support in the field. Managers and Associate Managers are spread thin and have a huge work-load but there can be great support from team members. Expect to work with challenging children and challenging situations but also expect to be greatly rewarded when you see how much you've helped them. Expect to work with teachers/SERTS who are unkind but also to work with ones who are amazing. If you want a true team environment, this is not the job for you as you mostly work on your own. If money isn't an issue then this could very well be your dream job!

Great ideas, poor execution
I enjoyed working for LearnStyle as a Technology Coach, and it was generally a great experience! The work that they do really does enhance the education system and can be life-changing for the students they serve. The CEO and exec team is friendly and approachable, and the overall culture is friendly and learning-positive. Unfortunately, it seems that there are some serious gaps in their people-management and compensation (low, disproportionate pay, no benefits for full-time employees, low/no actual advancement, and disconnected upper management). If you want a job that fills the gaps it is great, otherwise look elsewhere for benefits and professional development.

Personal and Professional Alignment
LEARNstyle provides me the opportunity to find alignment between my personal interests, education, and my professional aspirations. It provides a venue in which I could fully utilize my developed skills while also, furthering my learning and developing new skills. LEARNstyle is a company that places a high intrinsic value on its employees--and does an amazing job at staying focused on the positive impacts that we all can have on all types of learners. LEARNstyle is a great place to work for and exceeds at recognizing employee achievements and communicating its mantra, goals and purpose to the entire team.
