The International School of Modena is one of several very successful Italian schools belonging
to ISE (the International School of Europe) which in turn is part of Inspired, a worldwide network of premium schools offering global best practice and professional development. Located just outside the city of Modena, in the attractive and rural countryside, it caters for just over 230 students aged between 3 and 18 years of age. The school is fully authorised by the International Baccalaureate for its Primary, Middle Years and Diploma programmes. Our unique and stimulating campus, surrounded by the countryside, boasts an innovative and functional design and outstanding sport facilities, and is an ideal learning environment for students aged 3 and beyond.
We are looking for an Early Years teacher, for a class of 5/6 year old children, who will be able to adapt quickly to a new and exciting learning environment. We are seeking an enthusiastic professional willing to use flexible strategies in a class with students with different language backgrounds. Candidates should be committed to high standards, interested in using a constructivist approach to learning, and enthusiastic about promoting international understanding. Knowledge of the IB PYP and/or Reggio approach would be beneficial. A strong commitment to purposeful teaching, collaborative planning and open communication is essential. We pride ourselves on the commitment offered by our friendly and professional staff. Applicants must be willing to be active, flexible participants in a hard-working team of teachers. Having your own car would be advantageous, although not essential.
The person appointed will be expected to begin work from January 7th 2019. Before this date a criminal records check will need to be completed as part of our child safeguarding policy. The school takes safeguarding children very seriously and all staff will be subject to rigorous checks; the interview process will include safeguarding and staff conduct.
