We are hiring teachers for the May-February, 2018 academic year. This will be the inaugural year of a grand school with a massive campus, many amenities and plenty of experience and support from sister campuses in Bangkok.
The campus is located in Chachoengsao this is a link to the approximate location of the campus.
The campus is exclusively a girl’s school with education in year 7 the first year along with more year levels opening the following years. There are sports facilities, computer labs, science labs, libraries, swimming pools, vegetable gardens, staff work rooms, staff lounges, staff apartments, student boarding, evening and weekend trips, as well as many activities offered to both students and staff members.
Teachers will be able to stay at the campus in the new accommodation free-of-charge. Meals will be included as well as free transportation to the city center. Teachers may also live off-campus and commute to school each day if they prefer.
As the school offers a very popular English program, foreign teachers will run most of the lessons. The ratio is about 70% English 28% Thai and 2% Chinese. Teachers will be given a very detailed curriculum with accompanying topic lists, which correspond, to school dates and learning targets. Foreign lessons will be a combination of both book work, as well as indoor and outdoor projects for every subject. Excursions will further enrich learning and provide a better understanding of topics taught. Science labs, libraries, gardens, drama halls, dance rooms, and music rooms are used to engage the students and help them learn in a more thought-provoking cross-curricular way.
Foreign teachers will have approximately 14 lessons per week. Some evening and weekend duties will be necessary. Teachers are expected to keep an up-to-date lesson planning system and record keeping of students’ marks and learning outcomes progress. Teachers are assigned a classroom and students will rotate from class to class, allowing teachers to freely decorate and keep all materials in the same class for easy lesson planning and preparation.
