TBSC: WORKING IN THE SECONDARY SECTION

The British School Caracas was founded in 1950.  We have slowly expanded over the years and are looking for inspirational teachers to join the team.  We have 140 students in the Primary Section and 110 students in the Secondary Section.  Our curriculum in the Secondary Section follows the English National Curriculum in Years 7-9, IGCSE in Years 10-11 and the IB Diploma programme in Years 12-13.

The Secondary Section is an exciting place to work! We are looking at increasing numbers in the next few years.  If you would like to be part of these exciting times, we look forward to receiving your application.  Our teachers are flexible, enthusiastic, motivated, excellent communicators and always willing to go the extra mile (see attached teacher profile).  We are committed to educating the whole child and are not simply a results factory.

We are looking for Secondary teachers with excellent knowledge of their subject area, some knowledge of the English National Curriculum, IGCSE and/or IB Diploma Programme.  A minimum of two years’ teaching experience is desirable, although we do offer NQT training for exceptional applicants.  See attached file for details of our full benefits package.

We are committed to Continuous Professional Development for all our teachers and place great importance in recruiting teachers who ‘fit’ into our team. Our Year 9 students created a video to convince you! (HERE). 

Before applying, we strongly recommend that applicants read through all the attached documentation.   Please apply with a letter of application that must highlight why you would like to work at TBSC (and live in Caracas), and five essential traits of an international teacher.  Please apply by sending a letter of application and an up to date CV to the Head of School, Yasir Patel, head@tbscaracas.com.  

Interviews will take place via Skype and maybe face-to-face interviews in the UK if possible.

CHILD PROTECTION AND SAFEGUARDING

TBSC collaborates with UK, U.S. and other foreign agencies, as well as with private firms, who track individuals who violate child protection laws and participate in criminal activities. Should information be provided indicating that candidates have participated in activities related to either, TBSC will not proceed with applications and may report the candidate to law enforcement agencies.
