UNESCO Global Peace Village (Korea,
Korea UNESCO Global Peace Village(GPV),
founded in 2008, is a co-operative organization run by the Korean National
Commission for UNESCO(KNCU) and Icheon City. Since its opening in 2008, GPV has
been dedicated to providing a unique English education environment and preparing
students to become global citizens.
STUDENTS: GPV teachers believe that every lesson has
the power to inspire, every hour in the classroom is precious and every student
has the potential to succeed. Our Program also features enriching classes such
as cooking, sports, pottery and more.
WHAT & WHERE
YOU’LL TEACH: GPV partners with public elementary
schools across the city. We believe teaching is a privilege and we meet more
than 2,500 elementary school students from Icheon throughout the year. Together
GPV teachers are proving what’s possible in English education in Korea. Students
come and stay for a week (Monday-Friday), so the village has a camp like
atmosphere with activities not confined to the classroom.
GPV Teachers are curriculum designers. Our curriculum is practical, relevant,
and immediately applicable in any English dialogue situation.
HERE are our
teachers’ creative ideas:
UNESCO Core Valuesace, Culture, Eco, World Heritage and Little UN
Culture Box Projects: Students can understand
both Korean and different cultures through International Cultural Exchange with
schools around the world
Vacation Camps with a variety of topics i.e.
“Social Network”: Students learn how SNS is used and discuss different aspects
of social networking sites like Instagram and Twitter
Cultural Experience Programs: Easter Culture,
Halloween Program, Christmas Tradition
Bottom line? Our curriculum makes
English simple for everyone to learn. No creative limits.
GPV is a hyper-creative and dynamic place. We like to keep things interesting
with staff from different cultures (the USA, Canada, South Africa, UK) and have
fun doing things together.
We are looking for teachers from the
USA, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, UK and Canada now.
