Attracting the best possible teachers to Calling Academy is at the core of our vision. We would rather have outstanding teachers in average facilities, than have average teachers in outstanding facilities. Building a top teaching team with a great team culture is one of our highest priorities.


After a position is advertised, prospective employees should submit their CV and proof of SACE registration to be considered for a position.

Stellenbosch Campus: Dewald Maré (
Kroonstad Campus: Martin Botha (;

Teachers who want to send their CV for future reference, even when a position is not advertised, are welcome to do so.

All teachers need to be registered with the South African Council of Educators. Teachers not registered with SACE will be required to prove that they are in the process of registering or that they have a provisional SACE registration for their application to be considered. When applying for a position, please attach proof of your registration with SACE.

While Calling Education is a non-profit company, we wish to provide a long-term home for teachers through a competitive remuneration policy informed by an extensive bench-marking exercise. Salaries for specific positions are not advertised on the website but will be discussed during the appointment process.


This description is provided so that prospective employees can assess their own suitability for the Calling environment.

As part of working in a young school and organisation, employees of Calling
Education need to be innovative and flexible. Classroom dynamism and innovation is expected. A willingness to fulfil roles outside your area of expertise
is important.

We value our learners and the community we serve, hence is no compromise when it comes to professional excellence. Staff members are always expected to maintain a superb work ethic. Thoroughness, attention to detail and a willingness to make sacrifices are expected from all staff.

Calling Education has a distinctive Christian ethos that underpins its entire value system. We equally welcome applications from non-Christian staff, but such applicants need to be willing to work in a Christian environment and not subvert the Christian ethos of the school. No staff member will be expected to carry out duties relating to Christian mentoring that they are not comfortable with. In the appointment process, applicants will not be disadvantaged based on their faith, but suitability to carry out duties relating to Christian mentorship could count in favour of an applicant. The most suitable candidate for every job description is sought.

Working in Calling Academy requires excitement regarding an environment where different cultures come together. Racism or racist comments will never be tolerated.

The quality of staff interactions is an important indicator of a school’s health. Every staff member is a precious partner and co-worker towards a common goal. Staff members are expected to partake in team building activities and functions. Mature conflict handling is expected and placing the needs of other staff members above your own is part of the staff culture.

Staff members need to be comfortable with basic advances in technology and need to be willing to make use of digital platforms to support the development of learners. Classrooms are equipped with projectors and WiFi, bringing a wealth of presentation possibilities.

Local and even international volunteers play a role in school life. Staff members need to be comfortable in engaging with volunteers in a friendly and welcoming way.


One of our main strategies for ensuring a top educational experience for our learners, is seeking out high-value, low-cost collaborations. Here are some examples of ways in which volunteers have put their weight behind Calling:

• Weekly Connect Group leadership
• Drone and 3D printing demonstrations
• In-class talks about a chosen career
• Sport coaching
• Teaching music (guitar, piano and singing)
• Administrative assistance
• Clearing and cleaning on site
• Handyman jobs on site
