Guest Teachers

A valuable part of the education program at Gyalwa Karmapa's new school will be provided by guest teachers from abroad.

Under their guidance, students will have the opportunity to learn and deepen English language skills, mathematics, science and geography as well as participate in various workshops on handicrafts, healthcare, sports and the field of the arts.

Long-term stay / Sabbatical Year at KCE

We are primarily looking for teachers, who would like to spend several months or a sabbatical year at KCE.

The school is expected to open mid/end of 2015. Preparations for a long-term stay take some time and raise many questions. To be well prepared and ready on time, we would appreciate you contacting us early in your decision making process if you are interested in coming to KCE. We can then help and support you in your decision-making process and in completing all the necessary formalities.

Workshops

Further, we are looking for volunteers with all skills and talents in the running of the school.
We welcome volunteers with any skills in the following fields:

  • handicrafts
  • art/design
  • yoga/sport
  • nutrition/healthcare
  • agriculture/gardening

The organisation of guest teachers and volunteers is managed by Diane Brodkorb.

Please email us for more information and we will reply quickly: info@karmapa-education.org

Agriculture / Horticulture

We would like to use the grounds of the school self-sufficiently for organic farming.

We also envisage that students will learn about the careful treatment of animals and the environment. Workshops in these fields will form a compulsory component of the classes.

We would be happy for all kinds of help, advisory or active, to implement our vision to develop an eco-friendly agricultural system and for growing fruit and vegetables.

Educational Therapy

To cater for students with learning difficulties, we are also looking for people with expertise in remedial teaching and special education.

Alongside the regular classes, we will provide for small student groups with special learning needs.

Medical and Health Care

We are looking for volunteers experienced in healthcare: doctors, practitioners of complementary medicine, physical therapists, as well as from other therapeutic or nursing sectors.

Besides providing medical supplies for school residents, we would like to offer courses in First Aid and preventive measures. Simultaneously, we are planning provide our staff with training in these areas. We also plan to provide for our neighbours with free medical examinations and participation in healthcare workshops.
