OPPORTUNITY FOR TEACHERS TO SPEND A YEAR IN THE U.K. AS ASSISTANT TEACHERS DURING THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2012-2013

Applications are invited from teachers or university students training to be teachers who are nearing the end of their course to spend one year only on a Training and Work Experience Scheme as Assistant Teachers in a British Independent School.

Aims: To provide teachers with the opportunity to gain experience of the British educational system, to understand something of the British way of life and to gain a greater command of English.
Recruitment: Teachers of the following subjects are most easily placed:
Mathematics, Sciences, Information Technology, Design and Technology, Art, Music, Physical Education and Sport, Junior Classes. There are occasionally vacancies for teachers of French, German, Spanish, History, Geography, and English as a Second or Foreign Language.
Most vacancies are for secondary teachers (pupils aged 11-18) but some vacancies do exist also for teaching younger pupils (aged 7-13) and occasionally for kindergarten).

Essential Qualities
- having a good knowledge of English: ability to communicate easily but total fluency is not essential provided there is a willingness to learn quickly
- competent in subject area(s)
- willing to gain experience and assist with duties in a residential situation
- friendly and outgoing attitude
- adaptable and able to integrate easily and work in a team
- confident and independent
- hardworking, flexible and highly motivated
- ready to supervise sports and contribute to extra-curricular activities (expertise in a sport, music, drama or another activity would be welcome)
- having a commitment to share the experience with others on returning home.

Accommodation: This is provided by the host school, usually in boarding houses where the teacher will act as a resident tutor for boarding children.
Food: Will normally be provided during term-time and usually involves eating with other resident tutors and school boarders.

Dependants: The allowance and accommodation are not sufficient for dependants. Applicants must be prepared to go alone, although short visits from dependants, partners or spouses during the holidays may be possible after negotiation with the school.

Remuneration: Teachers will not receive a full teacher’s salary but will be paid not less than the minimum wage, currently £182.40 per week, throughout the year. Teachers will have to pay a small contribution to National Insurance, for access to free treatment under the National Health Service for all medical needs except dental treatment, which is not covered.

Travel Expenses: selected candidates cover their own travel expenses to and from the UK.
Fees: Teachers whose applications are successful and who take up places in British schools will be asked to contribute £980 to cover a part of the costs incurred directly for their benefit. This amounts only to about £19 per week. We do not require the total sum in advance but accept the payment in two parts, the first £490 being due by 1 December 2012 and another £490 by 1 March 2013. Money does not have to be transferred to the UK in advance, as teachers can wait until they have been paid by their schools.

This salary should leave you with enough money for personal use after the costs of accommodation and food have been met. This should be sufficient to join friends when they go out to go to the theatre or a football match, to buy clothes in the sales and to travel to interesting places in the country. Our aim is for you to be able to make the best use of your time in Britain, although you may find many items expensive.

Applications should include a full curriculum vitae (including postal address and e-mail address), a covering letter indicating the reasons for applying and any special interests, talents or hobbies, a photocopy of your degree certificate and a passport-sized photograph. Applicants should also include letters of recommendation from two referees translated into English.
Interviews will be arranged by the coordinator in each country. These will probably take place during January or February 2012. Applicants will normally be informed if they have been successful during the period March to May.

Orientation Course: Successful candidates will be invited to attend an orientation course at Fitzwilliam College in Cambridge from 31 August - 3 September 2012 for all teachers and scholars from Central and Eastern Europe. They should travel to the UK on 31 August, unless they are required to join their schools before then in the event of an earlier start to the school year.
Deadline for submitting complete applications: December 9, 2011
Applications should be made to:

The Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship for female students - Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Informatics

Dr. Anita Borg (1949–2003)

Anita Borg believed that technology affects all aspects of our economic, political, social and personal lives. A technology rebel with a cause, in her life she fought tirelessly to ensure that technology’s impact would be a positive one. It was this vision that inspired Anita in 1997 to found the Institute for Women and Technology. Today this organization continues on her legacy and bears her name, The Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology (www.anitaborg.org).

The Scholarship

Dr. Anita Borg devoted her adult life to revolutionising the way we think about technology and dismantling barriers that keep women and minorities from entering computing and technology fields. Her combination of technical expertise and fearless vision continues to inspire and motivate countless women to become active participants and leaders in creating technology.
As part of Google’s ongoing commitment to furthering Anita’s vision, we are pleased to announce The Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship: Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Through the scholarship, we aim to encourage women to excel in computing and technology, and become active role models and leaders.
Multiple scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of candidates’ academic performance, leadership experience and demonstrated passion for computer science. A group of female Bachelors, Masters, and PhD student finalists will be chosen from the applicant pool. The scholarship recipients will each receive a €7,000 (or equivalent) scholarship.
In June 2012, all scholarship recipients and finalists will be invited to visit a Google office in Europe for a networking retreat. It will include workshops with a series of speakers, panels, breakout sessions and social activities, and will provide an opportunity for all finalists to meet and share their experiences.
 

Eligibility requirements

Candidates must:
  • Be a female student enrolled in a Bachelors, Masters or PhD programme (or equivalent) in 2012/2013.
  • Be enrolled at a University in Europe, the Middle East, or Africa. Citizens, permanent residents, and international students are eligible to apply.
  • Be studying Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Informatics, or a closely related technical field.
  • Maintain an excellent academic record (e.g. a First Class Honours degree).

How to apply

Please complete the online application and submit all requested documents by 1st February 2012. All application documents must be in English. Scholars and Finalists will be notified in April 2012.
You will be required to submit the following:
  • Up-to-date copy of your CV
  • Answers to the following questions (Suggested word count is 400-600 words per question. You should treat question 1 and 3 as technical reports or research papers):
    1. Describe a significant technical project you have worked on. If you have worked on a major independent research project (such as research for a Master’s or PhD programme), please describe that work here. Give an overview of the problem and your approaches to the key technical challenges. If this was a group effort, be sure to specify your individual role and contributions.
    2. Give one or two examples of your leadership abilities. Explain how you were influential and what you were trying to achieve. These need not be demonstrated through formal or traditional leadership roles. Feel free to think broadly and examine the many ways you impact members of your technical community.
    3. Suppose someone gave you the funding and resources for a 3- to 12-month project to investigate a technical topic of your choice. Write a short version of a proposal, including a description of the project, your planned methodology, and your expected results. Please pick something other than the project you described for the first question.

Über betterplace.org: betterplace.org wurde im November 2007 gestartet und ist inzwischen die größte
deutsche Internet-Plattform für soziales Engagement. Betrieben wird sie von der gut.org gemeinnützigen
Aktiengesellschaft (gAG) mit Sitz in Berlin. betterplace.org verbindet Menschen und Unternehmen, die helfen
wollen, direkt mit Menschen und Organisationen, die Hilfe brauchen – weltweit. betterplace.org ist eine offene
Plattform. Allerdings sind alle Hilfsprojekte dazu verpflichtet, ihren Bedarf möglichst transparent und kleinteilig
darzustellen und regelmäßig über den Fortschritt vor Ort zu berichten.
Dabei kann jedes Projekt offen diskutiert und bewertet werden. Jede Spende – egal ob Geld-, Sach-, oder
Zeitspende – wird von betterplace.org zu 100 Prozent weitergeleitet. Ermöglicht wird dies durch eine besondere Form der Finanzierung: betterplace.org wird durch private Förderer getragen, mehr und mehr aber auch durch Unternehmen, die ihr soziales Engagement über die Plattform darstellen möchten – und Mitarbeiter, Geschäftspartner und Kunden darin einbeziehen. Dafür zahlen die Unternehmen Gebühren an die 100-prozentige Tochtergesellschaft der gut.org gAG: die betterplace Solutions GmbH. Wichtig zu wissen: Jeglicher Gewinn der 100-prozentigen Tochter-GmbH fließt dabei in die gemeinnützige gAG – betterplace.org bzw. die gut.org gemeinnützige Aktiengesellschaft verfolgt keinerlei Gewinnabsichten.
