De lessen vinden plaats in de middagen van maandag t/m vrijdag. Naast de reguliere lessen hebben we minimaal 4 keer per jaar een cultuurmiddag voor de hele school. Deze cultuurmiddagen maken deel uit van het lesprogramma en vinden gewoonlijk plaats op vrijdag of in het weekend. Naast het lesgeven, is de directeur/leerkracht verantwoordelijk voor de leiding van de school. Afhankelijk van het aantal leerlingen, heeft hij/zij naar verwachting een werkweek van ongeveer 18 uur. Tevens bestaat er een mogelijkheid privé lessen te verzorgen voor buitenlanders die (tijdelijk) in Nederland gaan wonen. Het werven van clienten voor privé lessen is de eigen verantwoordelijkheid van de candidaat, maar er bestaan mogelijkheden (o.a.) via de Nederlandse Ambassade die een actief uitwisselingsprogramma heeft.

De directeur/leerkracht heeft de volgende hoofdtaken:

Ervaring met het onderwijzen van Nederlands als tweede taal en/of bevoegdheid voor Nederlands middelbaar onderwijs is een pré. Goede organisatorische en sociale vaardigheden zijn zeer belangrijk. Ervaring met het leven en werken in een ontwikkelingsland is eveneens gewenst.

Het contract is voor een periode van één schooljaar; jaarlijkse verlengingen zijn mogelijk. De financiële vergoeding is gebaseerd op het lokale tarief van 13 EUR/uur. Naast de les- en voorbereidingsuren per week, wordt een vergoeding gegeven voor vergaderingen, directietaken en dergelijke. Daarnaast vergoedt de school één retourticket van Nederland naar Zimbabwe, en de kosten voor de werkvergunning. Het te verwachten salaris voor het 2018-2019 schooljaar is ongeveer 900 EUR per maand

Het schoolbestuur zal op basis van de ontvangen sollicitaties een eerste selectie maken. Vervolgens zullen email en telefonische sollicitatiegesprekken plaatsvinden. Enkel succesvolle candidaten worden benaderd.
