Kilkenny Steiner School is seeking a Class 1 Teacher to start as soon as possible. We are a small, but growing school set in the beautiful grounds of Camphill Community Ballytobin which caters for Classes 1 to 6. There is also a Steiner kindergarten close by.
We are looking for a highly motivated, trained and experienced Steiner teacher to take on a small class 1 of 8 children which will become a combined Class 1 & 2 in 2016. The ideal candidate will be at home in delivering the curriculum and in engaging children in musical and artistic activity. A high standard of English is required. Fluency in German or Irish would be an advantage. Because of the size of the school there is a good deal of working together with other teachers and parents on planning and creating festivals and fund raising.
You must be an EU Citizen and able to relocate.
If you are interested please apply via email with your curriculum vitae and a letter of motivation by 25 September 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org
