Benefits, and PD
AAS aims to attract the very highest level of teaching and administrative staff and recognizes the roll that competitive compensation and benefits play in this goal.
We are reconized as a leading international school both here in Bulgaria and Europewide. Part of this reputation stems from our investment in recruiting outstanding staff and faculty. Relocating to a new country – or leaving a current position here in Bulgaria – is not a decision to be taken lightly. It is important that AAS will be a good fit for you – and any family members who may be with you.
The tables below provide a good guide to the extensive range of benefits that employment at AAS offers. Further details on salary and other relocation allowances will be discussed at interview.
Compensation & Benefits Overview
Valuing Lifelong Learning
We are committed to the continuous professional development of all our staff and provide many opportunities to all our employees.
We appreciate the importance of ensuring that we provide an environment of lifelong learning not just for our students but for our faculty and staff. We provide a range of professional development opportunities to deepen understanding of current research and trends, encourage professional growth and increase knowledge and experience in areas which address specific school goals and initiatives.
Professional Development Days
There are 10 school-wide professional development days allocated a year – 5 before the start of the new academic year, one after the last student day and 4 others. Some are colleague led and others involve an external facilitator or workshop leader. There are also weekly scheduled collaborations with colleagues, self-reflection and specific professional meetings.
Individual Training Opportunities
In addition to the school-wide staff training, AAS provides generous funding for required and personal professional development that can take several forms including travelling within Europe and further afield to attend workshops, seminars, meetings, courses, conferences, or other professionally enriching activities that provide clear opportunity for personal growth that will impact AAS in a positive manner.
