iLEAD International School is a non-profit private school offering a worldwide renown curriculum to children in Phnom Penh at a very decent price while sustaining educational project throughout the country to give access to education to the largest number.
We are looking for energetic, socially minded people who have a love of children, care about the development of the whole child. In addition to teaching at the International School, volunteer teachers are expected to have an interest in international development, be willing to make frequent trips to the provinces and take part in various types of community and social work.
Native or near native English speaking ability is required along with a university degree or equivalent and relevant classroom experience. Experience with the International Early Year Curriculum (IEYC) or the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is a bonus.
The school is based in Phnom Penh the capital of the Kingdom of Cambodia. Working closely with the NGO Aide et Action, promoting education for all throughout the world, iLEAD International School's objective, as a non-profit structure, is to dedicate its revenues to sustaining educational projects in Cambodia. Too many projects sink after the first waves of funding have passed. With the revenue secured by iLEAD activities, these projects can last longer making the real impact they have been planned to provide.
The school itself is promoting a learning focused curriculum where the teachers are accompanying the students through the learning process rather than having a top-to-bottom kind of teaching. It really sparkles the curiosity of the young spirits and keeps them motivated to learn, building their confidence in the process. The curriculum is called International Primary Curriculum (IPC) if you want to look at it further.
Our fees are voluntarily lower than what could be expected for such standards so people with less purchasing power can also offer a high quality education to their children.
We also try to keep the parents involved in the education of the child. We host conferences for them and our staff and anyone interested on education topics.
Our teachers are carefully recruited. They all share a passion for teaching children and are excited about the social impact we aim to achieve. They are completely a part of it as they sometimes go to the field to provide technical support to various projects and local teachers.
The project is great, we love it. This is an exciting challenge and we are only a few, that is where you come into play...
