King’s Global Internships Programme officially launched

As part of King’s commit to provide a quality student experience we are delighted to announce the launch of our flagship Global Internships Programme, providing talented King’s students with the exclusive opportunity to complete an international internship this summer in one of three exciting and dynamic destinations.

The programme will support opportunities currently in the following cities:

  1. Shanghai

Home to China’s largest stock exchange, and the new Free Trade Zone, Shanghai is a hub for finance and entrepreneurial business ventures and is one of the most affluent cities in China.

Shanghai is China’s most internationalized city and has become a global financial powerhouse. With cutting edge architecture and a strong expat community, Shanghai has grown into a truly global and progressive city.

  1. Washington DC

Founded on July 16, 1790, Washington DC is unique among American cities because it was established by the Constitution of the United States to serve as the nation’s capital.

From its beginning, it has been embroiled in political manoeuvring, sectional conflicts and issues of race, national identity, compromise and, of course, power. Take advantage of the opportunity to work in one of the world’s most influential cities.

  1. Mumbai

Mumbai is a cosmopolitan metropolis and the largest city in India. Nearly everything in Mumbai is significant on a worldwide level.

As the sixth biggest city in the world, its ports are also some of the worlds largest. It is home to 15 million people living in a contrast of soaring skyscrapers and sprawling slums. Mumbai is a melting pot of ethnicities, languages, and culture – a truly global city!

These posts will appeal to post-graduate students working on a Master’s degree, a Doctorate or a post-doctoral student taking a sabbatical before entering the world of full-time employment. They offer the opportunity to spend time gaining some paid work-experience in an educational environment, utilising the knowledge and skills they have developed during their university studies. They are not exclusively designed for aspiring teachers, but would clearly be of particular benefit to those considering a career in teaching.

The successful candidates will become members of the School’s teaching staff and support students in a number of ways:

  • Providing Upper School Extension sessions during the second half of lunch-times and after-school. These will focus on leading discussion around topics of interest, current research etc. to sixth-form students who are contemplating studying their subject / subject area at university
  • Providing support or developing topics with individual students or groups of students in the Upper School during afternoon lesson time
  • Providing some Upper School Enrichment sessions during the second half of lunch-times and after-school, i.e. talks which are less subject-intense and would interest not only students studying the subject itself, but a wider range of students as part of their general education
  • Supporting the general academic work of a department or range of departments, as directed by the Head of Department and Deputy Head (Academic).

Precise responsibilities would be allocated according to the skills and abilities of the successful applicants. Applicants should be conscientious, reliable and have good interpersonal skills. They will enjoy working with young people as part of a small team, but also be able to show initiative and be self-motivating.

Terms and Conditions
On a day-to-day basis the successful candidate will be accountable to a particular Head of Department but overall they will be accountable to the Deputy Head [Personnel & Administration] who will oversee their role in the School.

The post will start as soon as possible after the position has been accepted and the necessary safeguarding checks completed, and will finish in the week beginning 14 December 2015. The salary for the post is £1,500, which will be paid in 3 monthly instalments. Some overnight accommodation may be available.

Application
If you wish to apply, then an application form is available from the Headmaster’s Personnel Administrator, Olivia Gavin (personnel@alleyns.org.uk). This will need to be completed and a CV and referees supplied, along with a covering letter.
