PYP Coordinator (TLR 2) (Non-class based) - Starting Aug 2018


Kennedy School is seeking to appoint a PYP Coordinator (TLR 2) commencing August 2018. This position is non-class based and will be on a full-time two years renewable contract.

A PYP Coordinator will have proven teaching ability and be able to act as a pedagogical leader of the programme in the school. The IBO sees the responsibility for pedagogical leadership within the school as being a shared responsibility, to include both the PYP Coordinator and the primary school principal.

A commitment to collaborative planning is central to the philosophy of the PYP. The PYP Coordinator has a pivotal role in this process, taking responsibility for ensuring that pedagogical aspects are discussed, information is disseminated and the programme is planned, taught and assessed collaboratively.

Together with other members of the school’s management team, the PYP Coordinator is involved in the whole-school implementation and organisation of the programme. Besides maintaining contact with school administrators, the PYP Coordinator should communicate directly with all members of the teaching team and be involved in whole-school planning, as well as in-school and out-of-school professional development.
