Seeking debate coaches in China
« on: December 06, 2014, 02:41:29 AM »
I'm once again looking for debate coaches work in China.  A job description follows, but I want to note a few changes from past posts:

*The job now includes working both inside and outside of schools.  Opportunities have now been established through a new ENREACH program for students who do not have debate in their schools.
*We anticipate needing 5-7 coaches for the fall, but we can now make earlier commitments to people because of growing demand. We expect that nearly 4,000 students will participate in debate through this program this year and that numbers will grow even higher next year.
*The listed job start date is March in order to give people greater opportunity to acclimate to China and participate in summer programming, but we are flexible on the start date -- Any time from March-August really works.


ENREACH is seeking full-time speech and debate coaches to be based in high schools and ENREACH centers in partnership with Dipont Education Management Group in different cities around China. The teacher may be asked to teach in the evenings and on weekends, and the teaching hour will be no more than 26 class periods per week, amounting to no more than 40 working hours.
