Working

Working at The VITS School is somewhat different from working in other organizations. We are a flat structure. We do not have a principal or headmaster, or a managing committee that tells us how to run the school. Through a process of dialogue and consensus, teachers work together on an equal footing to manage the school across various dimensions: pedagogical, administrative and financial. Thus, the teachers are responsible for all aspects of the school.

We invite applications from individuals deeply committed to self-enquiry and having the belief that education is the key to regeneration of self and society. If you are interested in working with us, please send us the following documents via email to admin@thevitsschool.com with the text “Teacher Application” in the subject box: A CV along with the names and email ids of two people who know you well professionally and will be willing to act as referees.

A statement of purpose addressing the following two points:

  • Tell us what has excited you, and what has troubled you in the broader education scenario in the country or worldwide.
  • The areas in which you would like to contribute (administrative tasks, specific subjects, novel initiatives).

After we receive the above, if your application is carried into the next step of our teacher search process, you will be invited to the school to meet with teachers. We can then take the process forward from there.
