Director of Studies (Residential)

Director of Studies (Residential)

Fixed Term; 1 July – 17 August 2024

Salary: Competitive

Benefits including: Free Meals and Accommodation

Closing Date: 15 March 2024

In 2022, Haileybury delivered its first International Summer School and we are building on this success in 2024.  The programme has an academic focus and is aimed at international students aged 11-17 with varying levels of English.  The different courses include an impressive range of activities and some exciting excursions to top-end destinations.

As a member of the Senior Management Team of the Summer School/Spring Course, you will be required to lead a team of teachers, and deliver an innovative and top-quality academic programme.  You will support EFL teachers and subject teachers with the design and delivery of engaging, learner-centred lessons using CLIL and TBL methodology. You will also support the new International Study Preparation Course, which will focus on developing academic skills.

You will lead and manage a professional development programme and ensure all academic administration is completed to a high standard.  Learners will take Trinity GESE exams and you will manage the administration of this, the exam schedule and the preparation for the exams.

The nature of a 24 hour-a-day, 7 days per week summer school requires staff to work flexibly.  The work is intense, days are long and whether on or off duty, staff are expected to put the needs of the pupils and the reputation of the school first.  However, it is extremely rewarding and enables staff to develop their knowledge and skills in a vibrant, energetic workplace.  You will work a 6-day week and be asked to sign a 48 hour waiver. Please note this is a residential position.
