Additional Notice of 2014 InKAS Summer Camp

Every 2014 InKAS Summer Camp participant should choose one day between May 19th~May23rd, 2014 as arrival date and one between June 3~June 5th, 2014 as departure date. for the flight.
2014 InKAS Summer Camp will take place from May 23rd to June 2nd.
The camp participants maybe can stay in Korea for a couple of days before or after the summer camp.
We have some hotel partners, so a camp participant can get a good deal on a hotel for a couple of days before or after the summer camp, if he/she make a hotel reservation under InKAS' name.
The reason why we require all participants to flight in Korea on 3rd week of May and flight out before June 5th is we cannot guarantee that a participant can take a flight when he/she want to take according to his/her schedule. We do not know availability of flights with Korean Air out of the periods.
Therefore, please choose arrival date and departure date in the given period.


Thank you,
InKAS

Language Bound: Searching for instructors

Event date: 2014-01-15

Language Bound: Searching for Korean Adoptee English Instructors

 Language Bound is a social enterprise that teaches English to children from impoverished backgrounds. As much as knowing English is an asset measured for today’s success in Korea, affording English courses are often reserved for the upper class. By offering higher education of English to low-income children, Language Bound’s goal is to offset Korea’s educational social imbalance while creating more jobs dedicated to Korean adoptees.

What Language Bound is looking for?

 Unlike most English institutes many experienced English teachers are familiar with, empirical experience shows that our program differs greatly.

1.     Prepare to be patient with many of these children for it may be their first time receiving extra-curricular education apart from school.

2.     Acknowledge the difference of the working environment in comparison to other teaching experiences. Language Bound is an institutionalized combination of educational and humanitarian group effort to help expose children to the larger global world.

3.     We look for one’s maturity, dependability and commitment not only as employees to Language Bound, but also as teachers to young children in classroom settings.

4.     Lastly, we are looking for someone with the heart and enthusiasm working with children. 

What you will find with Language Bound?

No previous teaching experience is needed. Language Bound will train instructors to become competent teacher with our newly adopted teaching method.

If you choose so, we will offer 3 specific work benefits. Hired Language Bound instructors will receive

1) 600,000 KRW per month (16 teaching hours)

2) free Teacher’s Training course, especially on storytelling

3) priority acceptance in all service offered by InKAS

Further details can be shared via email at languagebound@inkas.org.

1) Resume and other documents submission → 2) Interview → 3) Training

* The training will consists of 1 night and 2 days of Training Camp and 1 week of Training and Preparation. Both of them will be held in February and will be non-paid (Therefore, hired Language Bound instructors will be paid from March). During Training and Preparation, the teachers will develop teaching materials for the first semester, give a lecture in front of other teachers based on what they learn at Training Camp, and do pre-visiting local children welfare centers in their location.
