NSA Vacancy Afrikaans & Life Orientation Teacher (48)

The National School of the Arts seeks to employ an Afrikaans and Life Orientation teacher for grades 8 & 9 – the General Education and Training Phase. (149)

Situated in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, the National School of the Arts, fondly known as the NSA, falls under a select group of schools known as the Schools of Specialisation. The NSA’s area of specialisation is in Performing and Creative Arts. Learners audition to secure a place in one of the four specialist departments, either art, dance, drama or music. 

Interested applicants for the Afrikaans and LO post must have a requisite degree or diploma, a professional teaching qualification (PGCE) and SACE registration. They should be able to adapt teaching methods to apply differentiated learning and be computer literate. Previous teaching experience and a genuine interest in the arts will be an advantage! 

The successful candidate should be a good team player, enthusiastic, caring and resourceful. Understanding the creative learner is crucially important, as is instilling a disciplined classroom culture where enquiring minds can be nurtured, and innovation, possibility, and the pursuit of excellence are the rules of engagement. Passion, patience, and ability to motivate, inspire and discipline will see the incumbent thriving in the specialist art school environment.

All interested candidates should email a covering letter, CV, and a copy of their qualifications to admin@artschool.co.za (Reference: Afrikaans & LO Post 2022/06)
