Primary German Teacher  

St George’s the English International School, Duisburg-Dusseldorf, Germany.

St George’s School seeks a well-qualified professional to teach German in our flourishing primary department, to begin August, 2018.

The School

Serving the international community in Duisburg-Dusseldorf for over 10 years, St George’s School combines an enriching curriculum with family orientated care. The school has grown from small beginnings into a thriving community of over 700 pupils, aged from 2-18 and representing a broad range of nationalities. 

The National Curriculum is taught throughout the school, and we offer the IB Diploma in our Sixth Form. 

One of a group of three schools located across Germany, St George’s offers the successful applicant an exciting range of opportunities for professional development and growth across the school group. 

The Location

Located on a new, purpose built campus in the heart of Germany’s Rhine-Ruhr region, St George’s School enjoys direct transport links to the cities of Dusseldorf and Duisburg, as well as to the greater Rhine-Ruhr area. 

Germany’s sixth largest city, Dusseldorf is a dynamic and vibrant cultural centre, with a large and diverse international community. Situated in the heart of Europe, Dusseldorf offers a high standard of living, as well as numerous opportunities for travel and cultural discovery. 

Dusseldorf airport is located only 15km from the school, with many daily flights to the UK, and high speed rail services connect Dusseldorf to a wide range of European destinations. 

The Role

We are seeking to appoint a qualified German teacher to work in our flourishing primary department. 

German is a core element of the curriculum and is compulsory for all pupils in the primary school. Although the working language of the school is English, there is a clear expectation that all pupils maintain a high level of fluency and literacy in our local language. German is taught at a range of differentiated levels, with classes split between those learning German as a first language, and those learning as a second language. Second language learners follow an accelerated course, and it is our aim that all learners achieve proficiency in the language. First language learners follow the local curriculum for German.

German teachers work across the whole primary department and play an important role in monitoring pupil development. They keep careful track of pupils’ progress and maintain regular dialogue with parents.

The successful applicant will be a dynamic teacher with experience of enabling pupils to achieve their potential. We are looking for the right balance between experience, enthusiasm and a passion for teaching that will inspire our pupils. 

Fluency in English and familiarity with the English National Curriculum are a prerequisite. A strong desire to contribute to the rich extracurricular life of the department is also an advantage.

Only applications made through our online system will be considered. 

Applications should be submitted by the closing date of 28th May 2018. The school reserves the right to contact outstanding applicants in advance of this deadline.

St George’s is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will therefore be subject to enhanced background checks.
