Korea UNESCO Global Peace Village
Korea UNESCO Global Peace Village (GPV), founded in 2008, is a co-operative organization run by the Korean National Commission for UNESCO (KNCU) and Icheon City Government. Since its opening in 2008, GPV has been dedicated to providing a unique English education environment and preparing students to become global citizens.
CONNECT WITH STUDENTS: GPV teachers believe that every lesson has the power to inspire, every lesson and activity offers every student the potential to gain encouragement and confidence with the English language and world cultures. Our program also features enriching classes such as cooking, sports, culture classes, and interactive activities and games where students have the opportunity to use the English language and what they have learned in the classroom.
WHAT & WHERE YOU¡¯LL TEACH: GPV partners with public elementary schools across the city of Icheon. Together GPV teachers create a fun and dynamic environment where students can learn and enjoy English and different cultures without the stress of homework and assignments. Students come and stay for a week (Monday-Friday), so the school has a relaxed camp like atmosphere with activities not confined to the classroom.
CONTENTS: GPV Teachers are curriculum designers. Our curriculum is practical, relevant, and immediately applicable in any English dialogue situation.
HERE are our some creative ideas teachers have used in the past:
UNESCO Core Values: Peace, Culture, Eco, World Heritage and Little UN
Bottom line? Our curriculum makes English simple and fun for our students to learn. No creative limits. Teachers have enjoyed their experience at GPV and several have renewed their contracts beyond their first year.
COMMUNITY: GPV is a hyper-creative and dynamic place. We like to keep things interesting with staff from different cultures (the USA, Canada, South Africa, UK) and have fun doing things together.
We are looking for teachers from the USA, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, UK and Canada now.
BENEFITS: GPV teachers are employed by KNCU and earn the salary and benefits from both KNCU and Icheon city.
