STUDY OPPORTUNITIES

UK: Programme for teachers

The Open Society Foundation is inviting applications from teachers, or university students with a pedagogical specialisation, who will graduate this academic year to spend one year in a British Independent School as a teaching assistant. Teachers of the following subjects are most easily placed: maths, sciences, information technology, design and technology, art, music, physical education and sport, junior classes, and possibly also French, German, Spanish or history and geography. Most vacancies are for secondary teachers (pupils aged 11-18) but some vacancies also exist for teaching younger pupils (aged 7-13 and occasionally for kindergarten).
