The Philadelphia Learning Collaborative (PLC) is a grassroots organization that launched in 2017 to address the common challenges that progressive schools in Philadelphia face. Our growing network of – K-12 schools (public, independent, and charter), schools of education at five of Philadelphia’s leading universities, The School District of Philadelphia, and several regional educational nonprofits – works together to build systems and structures that support existing and new schools with progressive education models in Philadelphia.

PLC has three work priorities:

  1. Educator and Partner Development | Goal: Strengthen and widen the pipeline of teachers and leaders trained and prepared to work in PLC schools implementing Deeper Learning.
  2. Real-World Connections | Goal: Consolidate, create, and share the resources PLC schools need to build strong partnerships with outside organizations.
  3. Movement Building | Goal: Expand membership, improve member engagement, and share learning within the Collaborative and beyond.

The Real-World Learning Project Manager’s role falls under PLC’s Real-World Connections activities and is the result of PLC securing funding for The Workport @ PLC, a sustainable system that will support real-world learning across a network of progressive high schools in Philadelphia.

The RWL-PM will be responsible for all tasks related to the piloting, implementation, and management of the Workport @ PLC. The successful candidate must establish, implement, and refine the workflow for this position.
