CP843 – Full-time travelling Governess/Teacher required for B5, located Europe & USA, $180,000 – $200,000 gross per annum. Start ASAP
A great position has arisen with a lovely American family who is seeking a governess/teacher to meet the educational needs of their young child.
The family will be travelling in Europe for the year and is seeking a qualified teacher to support their child academically throughout their trip. The child will need to be prepared for school and require daily classes to keep him on the level with his peers.
As a governess/teacher you will be responsible for educating the child and creating and delivering a program following the early year’s curriculum, introducing him to phonics, reading, writing and maths.
This is a lovely opportunity for a teacher to leave the classroom and use the environment, culture and world around them to allow the child to learn, explore and grow. Formal classes will be required as well as project work, excursions, extra curriculum activities, play and games to promote the child’s learning. Whilst education will be the main focus there will be some care duties involved in meeting his daily routines such as getting him dressed, preparing light meals and bedtime duties.
The ideal candidate will be flexible, energetic, kind, well-mannered, be relaxed around the parents and open-minded to teaching, active and creative – someone who is capable of adapting their classes to different environments, making each location a new learning experience and linking in with the interests of the children. The governess/teacher should hold a PGCE (or equivalent).
Speaking and offering a second language would be beneficial to your application but not essential.
Accommodation is provided and this will vary from location to location. Whilst every effort will be made to provide a separate bedroom there may be times when you are required to share a room with the child.
The working schedule is 5 days on/2 days off. Flexibility will be required during travel, with time off in lieu provided.
A competitive salary is on offer to the right candidate.
Interviews taking place ASAP.
Salary of $180,000 – $200,000 per annum
All expenses paid
Qualified and experienced Governess/Teacher
PGCE qualified (or equivalent)
Ability to speak a second language is beneficial
Flexible, hardworking, open-minded, creative, great role model
