North London Collegiate School Dubai is seeking for a  Head of Islamic Studies

Founded in partnership with Sobha, North London Collegiate School Dubai offers an academically ambitious education in keeping with the aspirational ethos of NLCS (UK). The School provides the same impressive range of extra-curricular activities for which NLCS (UK) and NLCS Jeju are well known, and to foster well-rounded individuals who are capable of becoming leaders.

NLCS Dubai aims to be the top-performing IB World School in the UAE, supporting the aspirations and abilities of all students; as a result, they and their families will choose to stay in Dubai throughout their Primary and Secondary schooling.

This selective, co-educational day school, caters for students aged 3 – 18. The School is located within the prestigious Sobha Hartland Development, close to the Burj Khalifa and ‘Downtown’ area of Dubai and boasts state-of-the-art facilities.

NLCS Dubai is seeking a well-qualified and enthusiastic individual to lead the Islamic Studies department. We are seeking a dynamic, energetic, well qualified and highly committed leader, possessing excellent language and literary skills. The post will involve leading our team of Islamic Studies teachers and overseeing Islamic culture and values across The School.

The successful candidate will also ensure that the qualities of the IB Learner Profile and the core academic skills of research and inquiry are embedded within the Islamic Studies curriculum, whilst ensuring that KHDA and MOE curriculum requirements are met. It is essential that the Head of Islamic Studies has the ability to communicate deep knowledge of and passion for the subject. Previous experience of working with KHDA curriculum standards is required, alongside a track record of developing teaching and learning within a team of teachers and a proven history of successful student performance.

All members of staff are also expected to be involved in pastoral care within the School community, usually in the role of form tutor, and to contribute to the extra-curricular life of the School.
