Grade 2 Educator

What are we looking for?
A Grade 2 Educator – or Guide – is a caring educator who lives the spirit of Radley Private School by tirelessly nurturing individual entrepreneurs (what we call learners within the Radley context). The Guide role at Radley demands more than what is expected of the traditional classroom teacher, and therefore the term “Guide”. 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 of entrepreneurs facing real-world challenges and obstacles.

What does a Grade 2 Guide do?

  • Engaging in class teaching that fosters a purposeful progression in learning and which is consistent with the learning areas and programmes of subjects and grades taught by the Guide.
  • Embedding entrepreneurial standards and practices into all syllabi, schemes of work, homework, practical work, remedial work, etc.
  • Preparing all lessons considering orientation, regional courses, new approaches, techniques, evaluation, technology, entrepreneurial tools, etc. within the Guide’s field / subject.
  • Planning, coordinating, controlling, administering, evaluating and reporting on entrepreneurs’ academic progress.
  • Recognising that learning is an active process and being prepared to use a variety of strategies to meet the outcome of the curriculum and entrepreneurial learning.
  • Establishing a classroom environment which stimulates positive learning and actively engages entrepreneurs in the learning process.
  • Providing extra lessons where additional learning and remedial needs are identified.

What kind of person makes a good Radley Guide?
