Key roles

The main task of a sec­ondary school teacher is to present and en­gage stu­dents with a given cur­ricu­lum. Teach­ers are also called upon to aid the de­vel­op­ment of stu­dents’ in­ter­ests and abil­i­ties by sug­gest­ing ex­tra work or ad­vice. At given in­ter­vals teach­ers will need to give a de­tailed ap­praisal of their stu­dents’ de­vel­op­ment. Staff meet­ings, ed­u­ca­tional con­fer­ences and work­shops li­ais­ing with par­ent, com­mu­nity and busi­ness groups are also part of the job. While most teach­ers have six teach­ing hours a day, there are ex­tracur­ric­u­lar tasks, such as as­sist­ing with sport, school con­certs, ex­cur­sions and spe­cial in­ter­est pro­grams.
