About the Role

About the role

Fundação Sagrado Coração de Jesus Maliana (FSCJ) requires a volunteer English Teacher to provide English classes for the staff and to mentor local Timorese teachers in the high schools of the Diocese of Maliana. FSCJ was established to support and resource all Catholic Schools in the Diocese, including large rural districts bordering with Indonesian West Timor.

Palms Australia is looking for a secondary teacher/mentor to take up a long-term (two-year) voluntary placement with FSCJ. The suitable volunteer will support Timorese teachers across the diocese’s twelve secondary schools through a combination of class sharing and mentoring. The volunteer will explore the teachers’ appreciation of educational pedagogy, aiming to develop best-practice educational methods. Additionally, they will encourage and assist the FSCJ staff’s use of spoken and written English to communicate more effectively with international partners and supporters (English being a favoured language of business in Timor Leste).
