jobs description

Do you want to give hope and inspiration to the students most affected by the October 7th attacks and the ongoing war? Help us touch lives and support the children who need us the most.

If you’re an early to mid-career educator looking for an international teaching experience; interested in testing the waters before considering making Aliyah; or looking for social and professional support to integrate into the Israel education system, TALMA’s Full-Year Teaching Fellowship may be for you!

The Full Year Fellowship is a full-time professional program for English-speaking teachers. Participants, called TALMA Fellows, live and work in one of our TALMA communities across Israel. We are currently hiring for teachers to live in Ashkelon and work in schools in the Gaza Envelope for the upcoming school year. We also have limited spots available for teachers to work in Eilat.

TALMA Fellows teach English in a K-12 school; improve their teaching practice through regular professional... development; learn Hebrew weekly; and deepen their connections to their communities through immersive and engaging activities.

This position runs from August 2024 through June 2025 with the option to renew the contract for one or more additional years.

Compensation and Benefits
• Starting monthly stipend of 5,500 NIS
• Housing (studio apartments, or shared apartments with separate bedrooms)
• Health insurance
• Ulpan (Hebrew lessons)
• TEFL certification course
• Guaranteed job placement
• Transportation
• Mentoring & coaching
• Supportive and warm community
• Trips around Israel

• Teach English four (4) days a week at a partner school
• Teach up to 10 hours a week in other TALMA initiatives such as after-school classes and adult education,
• Plan lessons, attend school staff meetings, and perform other tasks related to teaching
• Engage in all professional development, enrichment, and community events (approximately fifteen (15) hours per month and up to five (5) weekends)
• Attend weekly Hebrew lessons (ulpan)
• Adhere to all TALMA procedures and protocols

Qualifications and Eligibility

To be eligible for the TALMA Full Year Fellowship, you must:
• have at least a Bachelor's degree;
• have at least one year of classroom teaching experience; and
• be eligible for Israel's B-1 visa, as defined by the country's Law of Return OR be an Israeli citizen OR be in possession of a visa that legally allows you to work in Israel

We also require candidates to complete a TALMA Summer Fellowship; candidates can fulfill this requirement in the summer immediately preceding the year (e.g. candidates can do summer 2024 and then full year 2024-25). However, experience in other education-related programs in Israel can be used to fulfill this requirement.

We are looking for teachers who have a desire to become a part of a community of educators, a willingness to engage in professional development and enrichment opportunities, have excellent English oral and written communication skills (Hebrew is a bonus, but not required), show a commitment to educational equity and have a solutions-oriented mindset and flexible thinking skills
