Primary KS2

The Location 

Doha is the capital city and central focus of Qatar. The city has a large proportion of expats and as a result is extremely diverse.

Qatar offers a warm, sunny climate throughout the year.

Expats can visit the souqs for spices and traditional clothing, enjoy local food and drinks in the streets. There are various modern malls throughout the city.
There are also many modern areas in Doha to visit in the evenings including international restaurants offering excellent food.

The Package

The school is a six form entry school with 24 classes of 22 pupils per class. The classes are housed in two blocks, each containing twelve classrooms and an ICT suite. The school day begins at 06:45 and ends at 1:10. We have a weekly CPD meeting and all staff volunteer for a one hour extra-curricular activity each week. Our CPD programme is designed and delivered by our excellent teaching staff and delivers high quality, relevant training. Each year group plans together with teachers sharing the planning and resourcing of lessons, as a result, individual planning time is greatly reduced. The children benefit from being taught by specialist teachers for Arabic, Islamic, French, P.E. and ICT. As a result, teachers enjoy approximately eight hours non-contact time per week, which allows for quality Planning, Preparation and Administration time (gone are the days of walking out of school carrying an armful of books to mark).

Our year-group teams are almost exclusively British staff, but we also have some international colleagues, which enhances the truly international flavour of the school. The teams not only work closely together, but tend to live in close proximity to each other (our accommodation is of a very high standard) and socialise together. This makes for a fantastic sense of camaraderie throughout the school and creates strong and lasting friendships. Our pupils are mainly English-speaking Arabic children who are an absolute pleasure to teach. Hardworking (in the main) courteous and polite, they are a credit to both their parents and the school.

Working at QIS not only allows you the time and space to work to a very high standard of professionalism, but equally as important, allows for a work-life balance which most teachers can only dream of.

  • Teaching salary paid in Qatari Riyals.
  • This equates to a yearly tax-free salary dependent on exchange rate and teaching experience.
  • Furnished accommodation and utilities allowances included.
  • Transport allowance and benefits including excellent private health cover.

Minimum Requirements

Applicants must be UK qualified teachers with a relevant teaching qualification including QTS. Experience of teaching a British curriculum is essential including a proven track record of supporting students. The school can consider applications from strong Newly Qualified Teachers.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Interviews will be held immediately via Skype.

The successful candidate will join a stable and supportive staff and be responsible for planning high quality provision, showing independence and collaboration in equal measure. In addition to teams of 6 teaching staff and one intervention Teaching Assistant in each KS2 year group, there are also more than 50 teaching staff and 24 Teaching Assistants across the whole of the primary school. This is a team of supportive, dedicated professionals who work tirelessly to optimise the learning experience for our 1000 Primary pupils.
In addition, the school has a strong and increasing commitment to ensuring the highest quality CPD in order to ensure candidates maintain their links to the UK curricular demands.
