Employment

CIC is an excellent place to collaboratively teach and continuously learn. We place a premium on finding teachers who have intellectual curiosity, the ability to relate positively to others in the school community, and who commit themselves to teach and learn from other faculty members and students.

The School

Exploring this website you will learn a great deal about CIC, our faculty, our students and the campus. If you have a specific question, send an email to the Superintendent, Dr. Kelly Kramer at kramerk@ciccaracas.com.ve.

Faculty Responsibilities

Our expectation is that all our teachers will become directly involved in the academic and non-academic life of the school.

Our departments work very hard to continually improve and modify our curriculum. This takes everyone’s commitment to enhance constructive dialogue among colleagues. This commitment is especially important because we are making a concerted effort to adhere to the dictates of the IB Middle Years and IB Diploma Programs in terms of integrating our curriculum across academic disciplines. The Elementary School has an inquiry based program.

Our extracurricular programs run the gamut from athletics to Fine Arts to our Model UN. We expect that every teacher finds a way to make these programs better. Equally as important are the efforts that each of us expends in order to make the school an enjoyable place to be. Our students and faculty find the school to be a warm and nurturing environment. We want to find teachers who can contribute to this environment.

Faculty Qualifications

The school average is nine years teaching experience, with two-thirds holding advanced degrees. The great majority of teachers we hire have at least four years experience and an advanced degree. We will consider those with less, but your experience and recommendations should be exemplary.

Contracts, Salaries, & Benefits

The initial contract is for two years. Salary and Benefits are consistent with schools in the region.

Recruiting Procedure

If you believe you are qualified for any of the positions listed above, send an email directly to the superintendent, Dr. Kelly Kramer at kramerk@ciccaracas.com.ve. Include a cover letter describing your experience and what you teach best, your CV (resume), and a list of current references. Note: All candidates will be required to provide an FBI background check.

The CIC Superintendent attends various recruiting fairs. In recent years, interviews have been conducted at the Search Associates fairs in Cambridge, the AASSA fair, and the UNI Fair in Iowa. The superintendent may also arrange interviews outside of the formal recruiting fairs using Skype.

If you are new to overseas teaching we recommend that you work through one of the big recruiting agencies. Search Associates, AASSA, UNI and The International Educator (TIE) all provide information and assistance to candidates for overseas positions.
