Head of English Faculty

Traill International SchoolBangkok, Thailand

About the school:

Traill International School has recently celebrated its golden jubilee, thus making it one of the most established schools in Thailand. One of the main characteristics of the school is the homely and supportive atmosphere for both students and staff: we believe that students can only excel when in a supportive and safe environment. We are fully accredited by Education Development Trust (EDT), British Schools Overseas (BSO) and Sor Mor Sor (Department of Education in Thailand), and are members of the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA), and Thailand International Schools Activities Conference (TISAC).

We have students from KG up to Year 13 and we teach the English National Curriculum leading to IGCSEs and A-Levels. Students leave the school to take up places at renowned universities throughout the world, including the UK and US. Our examination results are well above the national average in the UK and are better than most comparable international schools. Most of the students are either Thai or Japanese and we have a large ESL department to provide the language support which may be needed.

Class sizes are small with an average teacher:student ratio of 8:1.The students are well-behaved, resulting in a really enjoyable teaching experience for the teachers.

What we are looking for:

We are looking for an English specialist to lead the English and Media Studies Faculty. We teach across the whole range of English groups from KS3 to A-Level, both English as a First Language and English as a Second Language and both Language and Literature. The ability to teach A-Level is essential.

Thailand is a beautiful country and it really is the “Land of Smiles”, with plenty of opportunities for travel. The successful applicant must enjoy living and working in a foreign culture.

Remuneration will be competitive.
