Internationella Engelska Skolan Täby Junior and Senior schoolSweden
Date posted:
Start date: 7th August 2018
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Permanent

Internationella Engelska skolan is a well-established, expanding organisation of independent bilingual schools in Sweden. Our popular and successful IES flagship school consisting of a junior and senior school is located in Täby in a beautiful northern suburb of Stockholm, with easy access to the city centre; a wonderful cosmopolitan capital city to live and work in to enjoy the benefits of the Swedish lifestyle.

We seek a qualified and creative Design and Technology teacher to teach Food Science in our junior school for students aged 11-13. Food technology known as Home Economics in Sweden is taught to all students aged 11-13 in junior school. Our school follows the Swedish National Curriculum teaching in English, but at the same time incorporating Swedish culture and traditions in this subject. We have well-equipped facilities where students are able to develop their creative skills in a purpose built modern kitchen and where they develop their culinary skills and understanding of their own health and dietary needs as a sustainable consumer.

At IEST we are proud of our academic results and professional development programmes for developing teaching and learning with Cambridge Assessment International Education. We strongly promote the IES ethos of tough love, academic excellence and commanding the English language. To do this we promote our values of being positive using grit and determination in all we do. The school has a Listen, Learn, Lead approach to quality and development within our school.

You will be joining an experienced and creative Aesthetics team and will have responsibility for your own budget and planning. We work closely in our departments with subject development and cross curriculum themes, so we are looking for a creative team player wanting to be part of our collegial sharing approach for quality learning at our school. If you are interested in combining Food technology with Textiles or Woodwork and have the passion and experience this can also be a possibility to discuss.

These subjects are taught in English, but knowledge of or willingness to learn Swedish will be considered a merit, as is experience of a bilingual classroom. A mentor role (form teacher) for 15 students is also a key part of the role, as we prioritise proactive communication home in our pastoral care in Täby.

This presents an exciting opportunity for the right candidate interested in working in a stimulating and rewarding international environment.  Are you passionate about your subject and experienced in promoting innovation and creativity in your teaching? Are you keen to join a team of teachers who promote a calm and active learning environment in the classroom? We invite applications from enthusiastic, motivated and certified teachers.
