Offer of position - Job shadowing - Long-term teaching assignment - Foreign languages
Da Vinci is an alternative school based on democratic principles, inspired by schools like Sudbury Valley or Summerhill. This, among others, means that both students and teachers take part in the decision-making processes of the school, e.g. through the student council. In our school, a lot of attention is paid to student autonomy and independence in learning; internal motivation - of both students and teachers - is of greatest priority. In our understanding, school is place where both students and teachers learn constantly - it is a place for lifelong learning, but also a place where we experience the “Now”. School is not only a means of preparing ourselves for future studies or professional life (even though this is an essential part of it), but also a place where life is being lived and where every single moment counts. Therefore, we aim to create a friendly and positive school atmosphere where acceptance is unconditional and where everybody has the freedom to be who they are.
We are offering the possibility for a teacher to job shadow our foreign language classes, primarily English classes but possibly also German and Spanish classes, at both primary and secondary level. As the placement progresses, the teacher will have a chance to teach lessons on his / her own. As a substantial part of school work is conducted through project education, the teacher will participate in a number of different projects, including project weeks, project days, and / or in preparation of school exchanges and other international projects (e.g. eTwinning). S/he will have the chance to influence teaching contents through his / her innovation and ideas and come up with suggestions for projects.
The minimal length of the stay is 2 months, the ideal length is 6-8 months. Funding: Erasmus+ Key Action 1
