Subject: EFL: Curriculum Writing/Instruction in Philadelphia, PA

The Institute for Global Communication expects to have a full time
position in November or December. The heart of the position will
involve writing materials for immigrant plant floor workers from a
company's own HR materials, then implementing them in classes taught
at the corporate site. This position is for a professional who can
write ESL curriculum using corporate HR documents as the content basis
for a VESL program. The successful candidate will get these documents
(mostly safety and sanitation in a meat packing plant) and write a
30-45 hour curriculum in content-based ESL then implement it in
classes of small groups (8-12) meat packing workers, mostly Hispanics
and some Asians. The curriculum will be repeated until all workers
have been reached, then a new level will be written and implemented.

There is opportunity for growth as this program is implemented at
a growing circle of companies in southeastern PA.

Until there is a full work load at the corporate sites, the candidate's
work schedule will be filled with some TOEFL Prep and English
conversation classes held at IGC's center in downtown Philaadelphia.

The minimum requirement for employment is a masters in TESOL. I
would prefer a person with previous curriculum writing and VESL

In addition, there will be some teaching of TOEFL Prep and Conversation
at the school site in downtown Philadelphia, just a block away from
the Kimmel Performing Arts Center now under construction. Within a
year, the teacher is expected to be 100% devoted to corporate
programs at corporate sites clustered in a small area of Montgomery
County. Competitive salary and benefits are offered, with opportunity
for growth with a rapidly developing language education program.

There are also some immediate part time openings.
