Business and Entrepreneurship Teacher

Position availble at Cambridge & Yale campuses

This three week course aims to prepare students for the future by giving them the skills, confidence and motivation to succeed in life beyond the classroom.  The teacher will lead a series of interactive workshops, practical tasks and case studies for the students to learn what it takes to be an entrepreneur and the fundamentals of starting a business and marketing a product based on some of the most successful companies in the world. Throughout the course, students will not only learn business skills such as how to market a product, develop a business plan and develop an idea,  but will also develop their interpersonal and leadership skills such as public speaking & presentation skills, team building and managing others, goal setting, time management and communication skills. ISSOS is looking for an individual who can engage the students imagination to discover their passion for business and the opportunities that surround them.

As an ISSOS teacher you have your own class of international students aged between 13-18 years old. ISSOS ensures that classes are kept small in order to provide individual attention, personalised instruction and create an encouraging and supportive environment for students to learn while having fun and making new friends from around the world. Although we provide every teacher a guide as to what each lesson should achieve, we encourage teachers to bring their own experience and personality to each class and create their own stimulating and challenging lesson plans.

ISSOS is looking for charismatic, inspirational individuals who are experienced in their field and have experience in leading, motivating and encouraging a group of young people.
