2017-2018 Middle School Teaching Apprentice

The Kingswood Oxford Teaching Apprentice Program provides aspiring teachers an opportunity to be an integral part of an independent school community while gaining the skills and experience necessary for their own professional growth.

 

In order to facilitate experiential learning with time for reflection and mentoring, Apprentices team teach 1-2 classes (paired with a veteran faculty member) and increasingly assume the professional independence and responsibility of a Kingswood Oxford faculty member. Apprentices also learn about and practice their craft through involvement in co-curricular activities, where, with the help of seasoned faculty members, they learn to manage groups of students, work towards long-term goals, and plan daily activities for student improvement and growth. In addition to weekday lunches, housing, and a stipend, Apprentices receive professional development in the form of participation in a week-long orientation program before the start of school and monthly workshops on a variety of topics.


Kingswood Oxford School is a coeducational, independent day school for strong and motivated students in grades 6-12 located in West Hartford, Connecticut, named one of the top Best Places to Live in 2016 by Time/Money magazine. KO is committed to building a diverse community of adults—especially in terms of race, sexual orientation, and educational background—who will work towards helping students become confident communicators, resourceful problem solvers, and innovative, compassionate, and ethical leaders.


Teaching Apprentice candidates must have a bachelor’s degree as of June 2017, but no teaching experience is required nor is a major in a specific subject area. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply at any time, as the school is continuously looking for qualified candidates for this program.
