Working at CFL

At CFL, we feel that education is the key to the regeneration of self and society.

Working at CFL 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.

CFL is a semi-residential school and all adults spend some part of the week on campus. While each adult at CFL has a few core areas of competence, we all perform a variety of tasks during the day. Our daily work includes teaching, hostel care, kitchen work, land work, outdoor activities and administrative work.

Most importantly, it is our ability, both collective and individual, to look at our own patterns of thought, emotion and behaviour and to learn from each other that makes the daily running of the school possible.

We invite and consider applications throughout the year from individuals deeply committed to self-enquiry and excited to live on a campus in a rural setting. Typically we seek full-time teacher-applicants who can engage with children from ages 8-18. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept applications for part-time teaching positions.

**Given the uncertainty around the COVID-19 situation, we have decided to temporarily freeze hiring. Please check this webpage for updates; the next update is likely to be towards end of August 2021.**
