Teacher of Spanish ab initio SL

UWC Red Cross Nordic is a two-year residential school for 200 scholarship students aged 16-19, comprising more than 90 nationalities. All students study for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.
We seek a Teacher of IB DP Spanish ab initio SL, with effect from August 2018.

Typically, there are two classes in each year group; as a full-time position requires teaching five classes, candidates who are qualified to teach other IBDP courses (eg, English Language & Literature, Theory of Knowledge) should indicate this in their application.

Beyond the classroom, all teachers supervise students’ Extended Essay process, and are actively engaged in the school’s residential and extra-academic programmes; most reside on campus. Each teacher acts as an Advisor to a group of approximately ten students.

Opened in 1995, RCN is financed by public funds from the nordic countries. It is located on the shores of Flekke fjord in the county of Sogn og Fjordane, Western Norway. Like the other UWCs, UWC RCN is strongly committed to the UWC mission, “to inspire students to create a more peaceful and sustainable future”. The College aims to attract applicants from a wide range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds who are keen to live and work in this beautiful, rural and multicultural community. Students are selected on merit or potential by UWC National Committees in their home country; a growing number with first hand experience of conflict and/or economic poverty within their home societies.

While IB teaching experience is not a prerequisite, a minimum of two years’ teaching experience at this level will be preferred. The successful candidate will have convinced us of a willingness to contribute to a demanding and highly stimulating international educational community.
