Oxbridge Academic Programs has been running academic summer programs for high school students in the United Kingdom (Oxford & Cambridge), France (Paris), Spain (Barcelona) and USA (New York City) for more than 39 years. We are looking for educators with at least several years’ classroom experience at the secondary level to work on our summer programs. Applicants should have experience of school trips and/or working with students in a residential environment. Successful candidates need a good sense of humor, the enthusiasm to enjoy the month as much as the students, and the experience and personality to deal consistently and fairly with them. Above all, Program Deans should convey to students the sense that they are being cared for by staff who love working with young people. We are currently looking for candidates interested in working in the UK, Paris, OR Barcelona. To apply to Paris/Barcelona posts, the candidate should be fluent in French/Spanish.
Deans are responsible for the student life of a program and assist with a program's administration. Administrative duties include running the Program Office with a team of Program Assistants (generally, local undergraduates) and overseeing an area of administrative life to support the Program Director, i.e. liaison with the residence, meeting guest speakers or helping to coordinate field trip organization. Deans are responsible for maintaining program rules and policies, administering disciplinary procedures, and providing pastoral care and supervision to students. Deans work in shifts six days per week and are on-call throughout the day. It's as varied as it is fun, and a bright, enthusiastic faculty ensures that the month involves good company for students and staff alike.
Work in the Program Office involves dealing with students, parents, fellow members of staff, and program guests, and ensuring that the program runs smoothly in the broadest sense. Even when not on duty in the Program Office, Deans are a positive, engaged presence, dining in the residence, available in case of emergency, ideally involved with student activities, and contributing to the community of the program as a whole.
Qualified applicants should email their CV/resume and cover letter to the email address provided below.
