Details of Position
The Asian University for Women Pathways for Promise Pre- Access program is the first step of a 5 year academic journey made in English medium. Learning takes part in a multinational residential community where the lingua franca is English.
Pathways for Promise students are all on scholarships and frequently come from traditional educational backgrounds where they have not been exposed to communicative language teaching approaches or encouraged to critically think and self reflect. The sociocultural context from which these young female students are coming also frequently presents gender based barriers to self development and more independent thinking and communicating.
We are particularly interested in teachers who have experience, or who are interested in, working with lower level students ( about IELTS 3.5/4.0 ) and who over a year we aim to take to about IELTS 5 . Though undoubtedly challenging, in the 3 years that we have been operating we have established a solid track record in achieving the required results
Our students are drawn from a diverse range of challenging sectors and countries including Afghanistan , Rohingya and Garments industry workers.
