Institut Le Rosey , a dual-language (English and French) co-educational boarding IB World School in Switzerland, is looking for an art “stagiaire” or resident teaching assistant.
The Stagiaire will support the development of its Arts and Learning Centre, the Paul & Henri Carnal Hall.
They will be expected:
to run arts activities during our afternoon Sports/Arts block (between 4pm-6pm)
to have expertise in one or more of the following areas: animation, photography, graphics, printmaking, website design and 3D work (in particular working with laser cutters, 3D printers)
to assist with the classroom teaching in the two art rooms
to assist with the display of artwork in the PHCH
to be present in the PCHC between 8pm–10pm twice a week
to become involved in the broader and particularly the artistic life of the Rosey community
to run Saturday activities (normally an art club) between 10am-11.30am
Currently, the school offers the following arts activities to students between 4pm-6pm: printmaking (etching, lino and screenprinting), sketchbook development, an ‘art academy’ for senior students and an ‘art club’ for younger students. These activities can be changed according to the expertise of the stagiaire.
This post is a residential position for the academic year from September 2017 to June 2018, and would ideally suit a recently qualified art graduate who is looking to take a break after their studies.
As well as possessing ability and potential in their field, the ideal stagiaire will be energetic, flexible and dynamic with an interest in international education. The ability to communicate in both English and French would be a distinct advantage. A clean driving licence would be extremely useful (please state in your application if you have this).
In return, Le Rosey will offer:
Professional guidance and mentoring
Return travel to and from Geneva at the beginning and end of contract
Swiss medical insurance
Shared apartment accommodation (single bedroom with shared bathroom and sitting room) in an independent house at the centre of the Rolle campus
Use of school’s extensive sporting and artistic facilities
A monthly payment of CHF 1,200
Three meals a day and laundry facilities
A one-year half-price Swiss train pass
A ski pass for the Gstaad term
Expressions of interest should be addressed to by email to David Newbery, at firstname.lastname@example.org and include: a statement of interest (providing an idea of personal and professional qualities), a CV or résumé and the names of two referees.
