Energy, drive and enthusiasm is required from an Educator interested in setting high standards and establishing a firm foundation for a new UK/Singapore curriculum school in Penang, Malaysia. The school will offer both the UK and Singapore curriculums and have a mixture of expat, local and Singaporean teachers. It will open its doors during the first week of September in a renovated and remodelled office block with modern fixtures and fittings that has a capacity for 300 students from Reception to Year 8.
Start up schools require a particular type of Educator; one who thrives on the energy and focus needed to both establish and shape a new school. Any educator who has been part of such a venture will attest to the need to give 150% both inside and outside the classroom in an effort to live out the school's mission and to provide a first-class teaching and learning environment for newly registered students. Start-up schools require Educators with talent and drive in addition to a sound knowledge of their craft and the ability to implement programmes in what sometimes can be trying and frustrating circumstances. You are creating a school climate and building a school culture; the academice and extra-curricular foundation you lay in those important first months and years, will determine the success of the school and ultimately, the success of your students.
