Positions Vacant: Primary School Teacher & School Administrator

Position: Primary School Teacher & School Administrator

Country: Timor-Leste

Length of placement: 2 years

Start Date: January 2014

To work across two Catholic primary schools of approximately 1200 children, aged 4 – 13 years of aged based in an outer suburb of Dili.  The schools have very limited facilities and resources, and are currently staff by mostly local volunteers.  The Parish has requested a primary trained teacher to work with the ‘voluntary’ teachers to provide support and mentoring to further develop their confidence and teaching skills.

An Administrator is needed to further develop a set of administrative and accounting procedures across the two schools to increase transparency and accountability.  It is possible that these two positions could be combined.

We provide pre-departure preparation, flights, accommodation, a basic living allowance, personal and professional support during placement and re-entry assistance on return home. Applicants will need to attend an orientation course prior to placement.

There is both a moral and social responsibility attaching to these experiences of foreign cultures,
and if nothing awakens in our own soul, making claims and demands upon us,
calling us to change the way we live, then we have been merely parasites and invaders. - David Tacey
