Secondary English Teacher
St George’s the English International School, Duisburg-Dusseldorf, Germany.
St George’s School seeks a well-qualified professional to teach English in our flourishing secondary department, to begin August, 2018.
Serving the international community in Duisburg-Dusseldorf for over 10 years, St George’s School combines an enriching curriculum with family oriented 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 now offer the IB Diploma Programme to 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.
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 numerous daily flights to the UK, and high speed rail services connect Dusseldorf to a wide range of European destinations.
We are seeking to appoint a qualified practitioner to work within our team of English teachers.
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.
Supported by the Head of English, the successful applicant will work with small, focussed classes in Middle and Upper School, preparing for IGCSE examinations. The opportunity to teach IB courses, as well as further pastoral roles, may be available to the suitable candidate.
English is taught as a first language in our school and students are exposed to a wide range of styles and literary genres. English is not primarily a language course, but rather a means to explore and develop communicative, persuasive and analytical skills, among others. Candidates whose experience is limited to teaching English as a Second or Additional Language will not be considered.
All applicants require a degree level or post-graduate teaching qualification. TEFL, CELTA or equivalent qualifications are not sufficient in their own right.
