This is not a remote opportunity. If you are looking for remote work as an education assistant based in BC please email

Oak and Orca School (DL) operates throughout BC, and our teachers work with families to support our student’s educational goals.

As an SEA employed by Oak and Orca, you would provide 1:1 support to your student to meet their curricular and IEP goals. You would work in the student’s home, and possibly their community. You might also support the student's work on their professional therapist's goals (eg, speech and language therapy goals).

This specific student struggles with emotional self-management and would benefit from a voice other than mom’s, with a fresh approach, as she has found conversations and learning opportunities in this area challenging in the past. Some main IEP goals are developing self regulation skills and increasing expressive communication skills.

  • Familiar with elementary education in BC
  • Play based
  • Loves board games
  • Fun and playful

As an Oak and Orca SEA, you would be required to submit a weekly work record of your hours, as well as learning samples, details of your work with your student, and comments on your student’s progress with their Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Additionally, you may be asked to: attend an IEP meeting, meet with your student’s teacher, or connect with school staff about your student. Meetings usually take place over Zoom.

This position would ideally be for the entire school year (September to June).

Hours and Location:
Part-time from 6 to 8 hrs/week. Exact hours TBD by the School, in consultation with the family. Work will be in the family’s home or at local social groups or other public venues.

Our general scale for SEAs is a wage of $16 to $25 per hour, dependent on qualifications, experience, and education. We also have a special scale of $25 to $30 per hour, dependent on student needs and specialized qualifications.
