Now in its second year, the Flourish Project operates in thirty government schools giving middle and high school students the opportunity to work on a range of skills including research, presentations, academic writing, debate and theatre. After each workshop our educators sit with English-teachers from the school to discuss the class and work together to improve teaching.
We need extremely energetic and passionate teachers who have the ability to motivate and inspire Chinese students. For many students, this will be the first foreign teacher they have ever had, and teachers should be positive ambassadors for supportive, interesting and dynamic international education. Teachers will need to be able to manage a group of twenty-five students, question and encourage effectively and not only follow the provided materials but create develop interesting activities or discussions based on the students' response.
Over the past year, we have had incredible teachers who have gone on after the programme to win a Fulbright Scholarship, teach in an international school, take an appointment as a director of studies, successfully apply for an MA in Public Policy in Georgetown University, sail for two months from Alaska and found a social entrepreneurship organisation in Beijing. We want the exceptional.
