Description

APEX HIGH SCHOOL, EERSTE RIVER, CAPE TOWN

Seeking passionate, committed educators ready to build a school of excellence

Apex High School is a no-fee parallel medium public high school that opened in January 2018.

The School Governing Body of Apex High School invites applications from exceptional educators, with a track record of success leading through inspiration, strong character, superior relationship skills and a focus on fostering a collaborative school community. Experience in championing a high expectations culture for both learners and staff is essential. All educators will benefit from ongoing professional development and mentorship customised to your specific role and requirements.

We seek to fill the following teaching posts:

  • 1 x Grade 9 Natural Sciences Educator (Proficient to teach in both English and Afrikaans.)

FORMAL REQUIREMENTS

  1. Minimum requirement is a REQV14 qualification (matric + four years qualification)
  2. Certification through the South African Council of Educators (SACE)-proof of registration required

BUT HERE IS WHAT WE ARE ACTUALLY LOOKING FOR

A teacher who wears compassion like a superhero cape, swooping in to save the day for kids who've weathered life's storms. A teacher with a rebellious streak, ready to flip society's script on how we perceive children from low-income neighbourhoods. A teacher willing to move mountains, or at least rearrange some desks, to alter the life trajectories of our students. A teacher hungry for knowledge, eager to soak up training and coaching like a sponge. A teacher who is relentless in their pursuit of solutions when a child encounters gaps in understanding. A teacher who showers our kids with love, even when they're about as appreciated as a Monday morning alarm clock. It is important that you recognize the intrinsic value of peer collaboration, as the acknowledgment that "teachers need teachers" underscores the paramount importance of fostering a positive staff culture within educational institutions. A teacher that knows at our school the expectations for both kids and teachers are beyond the normal call of duty. Join us, because teaching here is not just a job, it's a legacy in the making.

Application: Please send a motivational cover letter, your CV, two recent work references, a copy of your SACE certificate and qualifications to renate@apexhigh.co.za

Please specify which post you are applying for in the subject line of your e-mail application.
