Classroom Teachers for Reception/Kindergarten English in PYP Program
Özel Bilkent Primary School (Özel Bilkent ?lkokulu) invites applications from suitably qualified classroom teachers to work in a bi-lingual immersion program in Reception (Pre-K) and Kindergarten. The program is part of the IB Primary Years Program (Pre-K to Grade 4), with 4 units of inquiry in Reception and 6 units of inquiry in Kindergarten.
The Özel Bilkent Primary School was authorized as a PYP school in 2012. The school offers an exciting opportunity for teachers to gain specialist training and experience in this prestigious program as class teachers working alongside Turkish classroom teachers to create an integrated curriculum which embodies the principles of an ‘internationally-minded education’ within a constructivist perspective.
The school seeks highly motivated classroom teachers with a strong sense of responsibility, wishing to work in a professionally demanding environment, as part of a team of national and international teaching staff. Ideally successful candidates will have experience teaching English to young learners whose first language is not English.
Teachers are in class up to 25 periods (40 minutes each) per week and ensure students meet the IBPYP program objectives. In addition, teachers are expected to be actively involved in the school community, including extra-curricular activities both during and after school time.
For Reception / Kindergarden English in PYP Program Positions
Classroom teachers should have a relevant first degree, and a teaching certificate (B. Ed. + PGCE or state certification). However, in certain cases the school can consider those with a first degree in other areas, provided they have further EFL/ESL certification/qualifications, or an MEd, or relevant experience (at the reception, kindergarten level, primary levels).
