Our schools are located in south Brittany in the area of Blain (10 000 inhabitants), in Loire-Atlantique, 50 minutes away from Nantes by car and 1 hour by bus, 45 minutes from Saint-Nazaire and the Atlantic Coast.
We are a group of five Catholic schools: a medium and student-centered secondary school (580 pupils – age 11 to 15) together with four primary schools (age 3 to 11).
You will mostly work in the primary and secondary school of Saint Laurent with a possibility of a couple of hours per week in 4 other establishments.
The secondary school Saint-Laurent in Blain has two exchange programs with Oldenburg in Holstein (Germany, since 2011) and Paterna, Valencia (Spain, since 2016).
You will assist the teacher in charge in the language lessons. You will help him/her to create new supports and activities and you will also lead small conversation groups. Our objective is mainly to improve our students' speaking and listening skills.
In the secondary school, some conversation classes in small groups might be set up outside the classroom activities and you might get the opportunity to visit & work with other secondary schools. You may also have the opportunity to teach German to primary and secondary teachers who are eager to improve their skills in German.
You will also help to organize cultural activities for International Week in our school and may supervise outdoor activities.
We are looking for independent, active and self-sufficient people ready to help our kids become more tolerant, open-minded and aware of the diverse cultures all over the world.
