Learner Centred Teaching Internship
The Saint Exupéry International School in Mauritius has an exciting opportunity for all prospective international pre-primary and/or primary teachers wishing to work for a year, minimum, at our English and French bilingual learner centred school as an intern.
The position is open to teachers with a degree in teaching and experience in learner centred pre-primary and primary education, as well as to those wishing to learn.
The successful candidate´s main responsibilities will be to teach students how to learn independently and become self-reliant, to provide them with the necessary skills to question and understand the world and to guide them towards cooperative living.
SEIS follows the principles of post-industrial education defined by the Education Reimagined initiative (US) whereas the learner-centred paradigm aids in learning functions and acts as a pair of lenses that offer a new way of looking at, thinking of, talking about and treating education. It constitutes a shift of perspective that places every learner at the center, structures the system to build appropriate support around the learner and acknowledges the need to adapt and alter to meet the needs of each child. Learners are seen and known as wondrous, curious individuals with vast capabilities and limitless potential.
