A growing, nurturing but sometimes demanding school network
Literacy Teacher (Current Employee) – Johannesburg, Gauteng – 20 March 2019
Working at Spark is generally positive and you'll find the positive attitudes infectious. The schools strive to implement a unique blend of flipped classroom models, learning modalities and professional development.
The culture and focus on emotional growth is superb, however the schools are structured more to serve learners than teachers.
Striking that balance is something they should work on for the future to address the quick turnover rates of teachers who cannot cope with the adjustment.
Excellent opportunities for growth and learning, high energy and nurturing environment, clear and involved management teams
Hours longer than usual for primary schools, work/life balance may be difficult to attain, lots of change to adapt to very quickly
