PRIMARY SCHOOL TEACHER NEEDED FOR OUR NEW SCHOOL IN HELIOPOLIS, CAIRO
About Open Sky International
Open Sky International's first school in Egypt will open for pupils in September 2021, and will be situated in Heliopolis, Cairo. It will be one of the first international branches opened by OSI, an ambitious and innovative new schools’ group based in Paris, and other OSI schools will be opening in various locations in Morocco, Egypt and internationally over the next five years. OSI intends to very quickly become one of the best schools in Egypt and our aspirations for our pupils will be high.
The school’s curriculum is broad and incorporates the best aspects of a range of international systems. In the pre-school (or the maternelle as it is called in French) children follow a programme which is very similar in ethos to the UK Early Years curriculum, and from the primary, all pupils follow a bilingual timetable, taking half of their classes in French and the remainder in English. Arabic will also be an important part of the curriculum. During its first year, the school will welcome pupils from the ages of 2 until 11 years old, and will serve children from both the Egyptian and expatriate communities in Cairo.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a French speaking or English speaking primary school teacher who wants to make a powerful impact on the lives of the children that he or she teaches, and is motivated, flexible, creative and hard-working. The successful applicant will be:
• An excellent practitioner with high expectations for all pupils and committed to ensuring that they achieve their full potential
• An inspiring professional who enthuses their classes
• Enthusiastic and passionate about education, with a sound understanding of best practice
• Able to support and promote the school’s values
• Keen to experience new cultures and ideas, and open to the challenges that living and working internationally will bring
The successful candidate will have an appropriate qualification, with a PGCE or other qualification leading to Qualified Teacher Status or similar. A minimum of five years’ experience in teaching the relevant age range is required. As the OSI group is based in France and uses French with English for daily communication, we encourage and expect all of our teachers to use French and English and support will be provided with this by the school if necessary.
Why choose us?
OSI offers you the chance to become a part of a committed, international team. We intend to establish further schools to implement our vision for bilingual education over the next few years, and this gives our teachers the opportunity to become part of an exciting new project. In addition, OSI offers a competitive salary.
