Right before the International Teacher’s Day, Teach for Bulgaria starts its annual campaign to attract new people to become part of the educational system and start working as inspiring teachers in September 2017.
The Teach for Bulgaria Program provides graduating students with various majors as well as successful professionals from different fields with the opportunity to contribute to a positive change in the Bulgarian society while improving and developing themselves.
The organization aims to attract new people to the education system who, thanks to their committed work as teachers, can contribute to the success of every student at the schools tha
All applications need to be submitted no later than November 30, 2016, through the organization’s website: www.zaednovchas.bg. The successful candidates will start their education in the summer of 2017 and will begin working at a partner school in the 2017-2018 academic year. During the two years, when the candidates will be teaching as part of the program, every month they will receive an additional financial stimulus of 500 lev from Teach for Bulgaria.
The intensive summer training of the approved candidates includes the use of the world known method of Teaching as Leadership.
Before the participants start teaching at real schools, our partner, Paisit Hilendarski University will provide training for acquiring professional teaching qualification to those participants who lack such, or in case that the school position requires qualification different than the one obtained.
Within the two-year period, the participants will be both teaching and learning further skills through which to motivate their students, will be learning to plan and set goals as well as constantly increasing their efficiency.
By joining Teach for Bulgaria, the participants will become part of a huge and united community of colleagues, peers and partners who are working together in the name of one common goal – granting equal access to quality education of all children in Bulgaria.
After completing the program successfully, a lot of the participants will continue as active advocates for educational change by working at schools or joining initiatives outside schools.
More than a half of the 119 graduates of Teach for Bulgaria so far have continued to develop themselves at school or in the educational field. The rest of them start working in the business and entrepreneurial area.
