The Greenwood Centre for Teaching and Learning: Teacher Induction Program - Math Apprentice Teacher

Greenwood College School was founded to inspire young men and women to venture further in order to prepare them for the challenges and experiences of life.

At Greenwood, teaching and learning are organized to facilitate success for all of our students. The prior experience of the successful candidate will show evidence of this belief. A willingness to embrace differentiated learning and related learning technology are also important considerations for this teaching apprentice position.

Greenwood’s professional culture is highly collaborative – all staff members participate in job-embedded professional development. Accordingly, the successful candidate must demonstrate a willingness to collaborate with colleagues. The willingness to participate fully in the life of the school, including our two-week, off-site Outdoor Education program, is essential.
