REAL School Budapest, a new, progressive international school is currently looking for a
KEY STAGE 2 & 3 ENGLISH LITERACY TEACHER (ages 9-13)
(EU and UK citizens only due to COVID-19 visa process restrictions*)
Join us in our quest to educate for sustainability through real-life learning!
Full time from AUGUST 2020
REAL School Budapest is a new international school for kids who will imagine and shape tomorrow - and today. Through project-based learning, kids discover the world and themselves, develop a sustainability mindset and skills to make a difference, and learn to embrace change. The School is inspired by Green School Bali - where our founding team worked before. While the school follows the National Curriculum in England in its foundational literacies, its focus is on nurturing entrepreneurial skills, wellbeing and personal qualities of its students through real-life experiences.
How can YOU help make our mission reality? What can you bring to the party?
IS THIS YOU?
Are you an experienced and inspiring English literacy or homeroom teacher who has the full toolbox of teaching and learning at their fingertips, wanting to break out of the box? Do you feel a deep passion and responsibility for building a sustainable, equitable, peaceful world through education? Have you always trusted kids to have a say in their own learning?
THEN JOIN OUR SCHOOL
REAL School Budapest is an opportunity for entrepreneurial teachers who have the utmost passion not only for teaching, but also for being part of building a dynamic professional faculty, and for developing an innovative learning programme with a purpose. Join a community where causes take centre stage, and real-life project-based learning, student agency and sustainability are at the core of continuous innovation.
TO TAKE ON A REAL CHALLENGE
Guide and teach students to master the fundamentals of the English language, and inspire them to go deep. Create a safe space for learning the spoken language, reading comprehension, critical thinking, transcription and composition, develop their discussion and debate skills, and practice to write for a variety of purposes and audiences across a range of contexts.
The future changemakers of our communities will need to be masters at forming, articulating and communicating ideas with clarity and awareness of their audience, purpose and context. They will also need to be well-read, both for pleasure and for knowledge.
At REAL School we believe that learning happens based on quality relationships, with students and teachers setting smart goals together, and using modern techniques of assessment for and as learning.
Educators at the School collaborate to make the learning relevant, entrepreneurial and art-filled by co-designing cross-curricular units and real-life projects.
