Escola Global is looking to appoint a secondary teacher of Psychology to start in September 2018. The ideal candidate will be a team player who would be able to teach Psychology in KS3 to A level (CIE exam board do not offer IGCSE). We are also looking for someone who is able to offer educational support in the Secondary Phase and this could be combined with this role. This role could be suitable for a Educational Psychologist looking to teach or a Psychology teacher willing to provide classroom support in KS3.
The ideal candidate will be a team player who would take a lead role in developing the ‘Body and Health’ pillar of our curriculum. Part of this role could involve teaching Psychology at AS level and History if the candidate was interested in / able to develop these areas.
Candidates do not have to be British trained but experience of IGCSE teaching is preferable. Suitable candidates should also have the ability to adopt a project based learning approach where subjects are, as far as possible, taught around a common theme in collaboration with other teachers.
The school is located in the University Science Park, just 10 minutes from Palma centre, in pleasant countryside. It is only 20 minutes from Mallorca airport and a short 30 minute flight to Barcelona (residents are entitled to a 50% discount on flights). Mallorca Airport operates all year round and offers multiple low-cost opportunities to a range of destinations.
Escola Global is a new start up school and has its own philosophy referred to as the 5 pillars, which students follow (Nature & Nutrition, Body & Health, Learning Support, Creativity and Innovation). The school was founded on the belief in a holistic education and therefore has a number of aims which; permeate the curriculum. We place a high value on the development of the whole child and celebrate their wonderfully diverse achievements and talents. Our first IGCSE cohort will take their examinations in May 2018 and in September 2018 we will open our new 6th form.
We seek professionals who can think outside the box, want to try something new and who share our ethos. Interested candidates should send their CV and short covering letter to us.
