Careers with A+ World Academy
We currently have open positions for talented and passionate faculty members for the 2020/2021 academic year. If you love to teach, travel, and really go the extra mile with students, this may be the job for you!
Feel free to send us an open application!
Current open positions: Science teacher for Biology, Chemistry, and AP Environmental Science
Our program is based around our signature “My Five to Global Leadership” structure that develops the students’ academic level, communal living mindfulness, reflective learning, global understanding, and maritime training. Our faculty must align their teaching practice to this structure and this alignment must be reflected on the lesson plans submitted throughout the year.
Our teachers live and work on the ship along with the maritime crew and 60 international students. It is important to notice that these students not only take classes, they sail the ship, work daily to clean and maintain her, and explore different cultures both while sailing and at port. As we expect to build resilience, perseverance, and grit in our students, we must have teachers that are able to lead by example.
A successful candidate for our program must also portray tolerance and a true desire to foster conversations of cultural awareness and understanding in a non-judgmental and supportive way. Since we live in a close-knit community, all these characteristics are incredibly important.
This experience is as a difficult and exhausting as it is rewarding, if you are the right person you will understand.
