Secondary School Drama and Performing Arts Teacher
As we move to our new campus at Barwa City we are looking for applications from enthusiastic, hard-working and talented teachers who wish to develop their teaching career in an international setting. If successful, you would be joining a very supportive committed group of professionals with a mix of young and more experienced teachers. You will be working in a five star environment in a brand new, purpose built, and state of the art school.
We follow the English National Curriculum which has been modified to meet the needs of our students who represent 50 different nationalities. This will prepare our students for the rigor of IGCSE and A Levels before moving onto University.
Our classrooms are active and our students participate in their learning. Where possible we want to make connections in students learning so being able to apply your subject and make connections with other subjects is very important. Role play and providing opportunities for students to speak with confidence is a feature of many lessons.
We have outstanding facilities for the teaching of drama and performing arts which include both a dance and a drama studio as well as a 600 seat auditorium that will host many memorable Oryx events. In addition there are 3 music rooms, a recital room (including staging) and a Recording Studio. The drama studio will be fitted out in black box theatre design, complete with stage, lighting and sound equipment.
We now need an outstanding drama and performing arts teacher to provide and develop the curriculum in drama and the performing arts generally. This will include assisting with the development of the Dance programme.
You will also need to work closely with primary and music teachers in producing shows and events. KS3 teachers will also be expected to take on the role of form tutor. The ability to offer more than one subject will be an advantage.
