A program has been launched for non-statutory teachers and applicants - whose main advantage is to obtain the right to teach alongside being employeed at school. The program also provides for the professional development of a jobseeker, equipping the teacher with skills and thus facilitating the adaptation process to the school environment. The program is implemented remotely, whilst working alongside the general education institution. The trainees involved in the training program will plan their agenda themselves, lasting for up to 2 years.
The beneficiaries of the program are:
1. Individuals who have been taught in a general education institution for the beginning of the 2018-2019 academic year, and are not included in the teacher professional development and career advancement scheme. The applicants also must have no status specified in the teacher initiation, professional development and career advancement scheme.
After a successful completion of the program, non-teaching teachers are given the opportunity to obtain the status within a specified time. They will automatically join the program if they do not go through a one-year teacher training program.
1. Bachelor / Master or equivalent degree holder with a diploma with relevant qualification in the subject
The applicant (if required) must register at www.pedagogi.ge/www.teacherjobs.ge and select the desired school / schools where he / she wishes to start work. If the interview is successful, the school concludes the contract and begins teaching. Its activities are remunerated.
Alongside work, the applicant runs an academic course. The academic course is conducted remotely and during the course the seeking teacher carries out assignments received in practice.
The internship is conducted in a general education institution, which will be provided by an experienced tutor with the responsibility of assisting the applicant in adapting to the school and completing practical assignments.
There is a long and short / intensive course for the teacher search program. A seeking teacher can choose either one of them. The long course implies a maximum of two years, a short / intensive course - 4 months.
