Our Recruitment Policy

As a respectable school, we will treat all our personnel equally, irrespective of race, ethnic origin, sex, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, creed, disability, age or political belief.

Our Pedagogical Approach and Instruction Methodology

The classes at ICC will generally follow an integrated skills approach. They will focus on functional and notional areas, and then work on the language skills required to achieve competence in those areas. These will usually consist of a mix of structural, lexical and cultural items, including work on question forms, politeness phrases, appropriate intonation, and phrases to attract attention. The instructors will always follow an active learning approach, engaging their students in the target language. The content of the lessons needs to be relevant to life outside the classroom, and has to be adapted to the specific needs of each student.

We expect our instructors to… 

  • Use the target language whenever possible when teaching.
  • Use techniques to motivate the students to use the target language as much as possible.
  • Ask the students to create realistic and meaningful language.
  • Put new language and ideas into practice as soon as possible.
  • Incorporate a lot of listening practice in the target language.
  • Systematically teach the grammatical structures, vocabulary, and functional language, necessary to achieve the students’ learning objectives.
  • Work on pronunciation techniques, intonation, and stress patterns to ensure that the students can be understood by others.
  • Make sure that all learning is relevant to the stated objectives.
  • Keep challenge and interest levels high at all times.
  • Review and recycle new language to ensure it remains active.

Instructors’ main responsibilities include:

  • Preparing course curriculum and lesson plans.
  • Choosing proper textbooks and other teaching materials for the students.
  • Instructing adults as well as children in various courses.
  • Administering written and oral exams, and grading them.
  • Monitoring performance, submitting progress reports, and advising the students on progress.
  • Taking students’ attendance, and performing other duties as directed.
