Full-time English Language Instructor Needed in Chittagong, Bangladesh

Posted By: Asian University for Women <[email protected]>
Date: Thursday, 24 October 2019, at 2:35 p.m.

Asian University for Women (AUW), located in Chittagong, Bangladesh, invites applications for full-time Pathways for Promise Instructors. AUW is seeking motivated individuals with excellent academic records and strong extra-curricular engagement to teach English-language courses beginning in January 2020.

We are looking for committed, enthusiastic, preferably CELTA qualified teachers who enjoy a challenge and are keen to make a positive and sustainable difference. You will be given the necessary support in a professional and friendly working environment in which we promote not only the attainment of results through rigorous assessment, but a whole person transformational educational approach.

The Asian University for Women Pathways for Promise Pre- Access program is the first step of a 5-year academic journey made in the English medium. Learning takes place in a multinational residential community where the lingua franca is English.

Pathways for Promise students are all on scholarships and frequently come from traditional educational backgrounds where they have not been exposed to communicative language teaching approaches or encouraged to critically think and self reflect. The sociocultural context from which these young female students are coming also frequently presents gender-based barriers to self-development and more independent thinking and communicating.

We are particularly interested in teachers who have experience, or who are interested in, working with lower level students (about IELTS 3.5/4.0) who, over a year, we aim to take to about IELTS 5. Though undoubtedly challenging, in the 3 years that we have been operating we have established a solid track record in achieving the required results.

Our students are drawn from a diverse range of challenging countries (Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine) and settings (Rohingya refugees, garments industry workers, and daughters of tea pickers).

Job Description (not exhaustive):
Plan and deliver English language classes (General English and English for Academic Purposes) to up to 20 contact hours per week
Give office hours to students to up to 6 hours per week
Plan purposeful lessons that meet student needs and provide for effective learning
Follow the Pathways course books and appropriately adapt and create relevant materials to support the core syllabi
Make inputs into the Pathways extra-curricular activities through supporting course design and implementation of curriculum strands such as English through IT and project work
Assess students using the Pathways Assessment system and give both formative and summative evaluations. Undergo training to perform these standardized assessments
Grade General Admissions Test papers
Complete teaching related administration (attendance records, work records, assessment records etc)
Liaise with academic mentors
Attend staff meetings / participate in teacher development program including development and delivery of sessions / conduct peer observations
Undertake any other duties assigned by the Program Director

Terms and Conditions
All the below are subject to change and the approval of the Vice Chancellor.
Salary 14,000 USD per year Tax Free
Free Shared Accommodation (Utilities not covered)
Free transport to and from residence to University campus
Medical Insurance
Substantial contribution to airfare from place of domicile to Chittagong and return at end of contract (further details available on request)
Deferred Compensation: AUW provides 5% of annual base salary contribution payable at the end of your employment.

Paid leave including mid semester breaks (5 working days) and end of semester breaks (usually about 15 working days) 7 days/year of sick leave and 3 days/year bereavement/compassionate leave. Bangladesh national holidays and other days when AUW may be officially closed are defined in the Academic Calendar.

Please email a CV and cover letter to Ms. Katsuki Sakai at [email protected] by November 15, 2019.
