British School AlgiersAlgeria

We are seeking an enthusiastic, hard-working, and talented Science teacher who has experience of teaching KS3 Science, IGCSE Physics and A-level in either Biology, Chemistry or Physics.  

The British School Algiers, the first British international school in Algeria, opened in November 2020 following a joint agreement between the Algerian and British governments and is already very popular with parents.  

We are a 5 to 18 school and we follow the English National Curriculum tailored to an International School setting.  

Candidates must hold a B.Ed. or Degree plus Postgraduate teaching qualification or equivalent. Candidates should also have experience of teaching in the UK or an accredited British international school.

The successful candidate will have the ability to work collaboratively, building strong relationships with all members of the school community and be looking to develop their teaching career in an international setting.  He or she must be ready to play their part in establishing the ethos of this new school as well as mentoring one or two local teachers.  This exciting new venture requires energetic and highly committed teachers who can motivate and inspire students to reach their maximum potential.

We are committed to ensuring excellent learning and teaching in a caring environment.  You will find the school a rewarding and friendly place to work with good relationships between staff and students.

Algiers is a bustling, friendly and cosmopolitan city on the Mediterranean, full of historical interest and within easy reach of the UK and Europe.  Life for teachers is enjoyable with a low cost of living and a sufficiently good infrastructure, shops, cafes, and restaurants to lead a European lifestyle.  Teachers are able to save a good proportion of their salary and, at the same time, enjoy exploring Algeria.
