Spanish & French Teacher (Part-time temporary)

Role Description

This is an outstanding opportunity for language teachers seeking to grow their career in one of the leading language schools in the country. The learning of languages is at the centre of an IGS education. Our Primary students are provided with a partial immersion program, and whilst in High School, languages are a core component of all students’ study programs to at least Year 10.

This part-time temporary position calls for a dynamic and enthusiastic Spanish and French teacher. The teaching load for the role will have a focus on High School classes, with a possibility of a minor Primary allocation.

The role will be carried out from the initial appointment to 5 December 2018, replacing a staff member who has been promoted internally. The teaching load for this position will be between 0.4 and 0.5 of a full time equivalent. The final teaching load will be determined in consultation with the successful candidate.

Recent graduate teachers are encouraged to apply.
