English Educator (Grades 4 to 7)

What are we looking for?
An English Guide – what we call our teachers – is a caring educator who lives the spirit of Radley Private School by tirelessly nurturing individual entrepreneurs (which is what we call our learners). The Guide role at Radley demands more than what is expected of the traditional classroom teacher which is why we use the term.  A Radley Guide provides quality education that infuses critical entrepreneurial skills (emotional, technical and experiential in nature) into the content of their subject – skills that are required by entrepreneurs facing real-world challenges and obstacles.

What does an English Guide do?

  • Engage in class teaching to foster a purposeful progression in learning and which is consistent with the learning areas and programmes of your subjects and grades.
  • Embed Entrepreneurial Educator Guide standards and practices into all syllabuses, schemes of work, homework, practical work, remedial work, etc.

  • Plan, coordinate, control, administrate, evaluate and report on entrepreneurs’ academic progress.
  • Recognise that learning is an active process and be prepared to use a variety of strategies to meet the outcome of the curriculum and entrepreneurship.
  • Establish a classroom environment which stimulates positive learning and actively engages entrepreneurs in the learning process.
  • Provide extra lessons when learning and remedial needs are identified.
