Teachers at Apex Public School are ‘facilitators’ as the School has adopted a ‘student-centric’ approach to learning. Teachers will facilitate learning by helping their pupils access information, encourage creative ideas and help in solving problems.
A teacher at the school essentially leads and guides the learning process. Regarded as a facilitator, the teacher plans and implements a programme of instruction that adheres to the School’s philosophy, goals and objectives. To facilitate individualized learning and teaching, our teachers harness the strengths and proclivities of each student with regard to specific intelligences and help overcome weaknesses, if they exist.
Apex seeks experienced, highly qualified, certified teachers who are not only highly competent instructors, but who also desire to guide students on the path of learning. We are a school with an exciting future. Apex offers staff a rich tradition of achievement and the opportunity to become part of a remarkable group of professionals. An Apex career provides outstanding opportunities for personal reward, fulfilment, and learning.
The School welcomes applications from individuals who are innovative, open, inquiring and enthusiastic, and have a genuine commitment to professional and personal growth and development. Please take time to browse this website to develop an appreciation of the culture of Apex and what it values.
