Colegio Panamericano has an international faculty employed both locally and from abroad. We are always on the lookout for talented and dedicated teachers in all subject areas. Most foreign teacher hiring occurs at one of the major recruiting fairs held from December through February. We plan to attend the following teacher recruiting fairs during the 2012/2013 school year:
1. Association of American Schools in South America, Atlanta, Georgia
2. University of Northern Iowa, Waterloo, Iowa
Hiring for local teachers generally takes place during the second semester. An interview will be required with school administration. Our positive teaching environment, competitive salary and benefits packages and year round semi-tropical weather is reflected in a low teacher turnover rate.
Candidates Beware of Recruiting Scams
Colegio Panamericano will never ask or require teacher candidates to send money for application fees, interview fees, visas, plane tickets or other costs associated with recruitment or moving to Colombia. If you have been asked by Colegio Panamericano or another international school to send money to cover such costs, you are potentially the target of an elaborate scam. Several good international schools in different regions of the world have recently had their web sites cloned, and candidates have been asked to send large amounts of money. All candidates are urged to be diligent in investigating potential schools during the recruiting process and prior to signing a contract. Use extreme caution if you have been asked for money or private information.
