Kobe Bilingual School (KOBILS) is looking for an experienced and enthusiastic international elementary school teacher to teach grade 2/3 in Tarumi, Kobe starting immediately.
Monday-Friday: Homeroom teacher; grade 2/3. Elementary school teachers teach across the curriculum (we have specialists in Music, Technology and PE, but teachers may be involved in these lessons). KOBILS is an active school and teachers are expected to take an active role in PE, hiking, swimming and other activities with the children.
The successful applicant will be a qualified teacher with experience teaching primary school children at an international school here in Japan or a regular primary/elementary school in their own country. Teachers must be capable of taking on projects that will benefit the entire school. Initiative, the ability to work unsupervised within a team, and a specific interest/specialism within the elementary curriculum are highly valued.
Teachers with experience of Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence would be especially welcome, as would teachers who have aided in the accreditation process at a previous school.
We are a small school with typically 10-12 children in each grade/year level. Children are enthusiastic and cooperative and, in general, are working at or above grade level. KOBILS only accepts fluent English speaking children at elementary school, although many of them are Japanese children with some second language grammar support needs. KOBILS is growing each year so there are plenty of projects to lead and opportunities to specialize for enthusiastic teachers who are looking to make a real contribution. Strong computer/technology skills are valued.
At least twenty-five paid holidays to be taken outside core term-time plus most public holidays. Furnished company apartments near a mainline station are available at a competitive rent for single teachers or near the school for teachers with families; tuition subsidies up to 100% for children aged 2-9 in kindergarten/elementary and up to aged 18 in afterschool and Saturday programs. Shakai hoken health insurance/pension provided. Minimum two year commitment.
Applicants within Japan will need a visa enabling them to work (working holiday is fine to start) and sponsorship is offered on expiration. KOBILS will support visa applications for teachers outside Japan.
Please include a personalized cover letter explaining your interest in this position. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
Please note: KOBILS also has similar positions starting April. If you are interested in applying early for April (teaching patterns available as above), please indicate in your cover letter.
