KISU is warm, vibrant, forward-looking and truly international school in Kampala, Uganda. We are CIS/NEASC accredited and an IB World School with 500 students aged 2 to 18 years from 58 countries. We offer the English National Curriculum, IGCSE’s and the IB Diploma Programme. We are blessed with great students, committed teachers and a beautiful, well-appointed campus, located close to the centre of the city.

We are seeking a committed and enthusiastic EAL teacher to start in August 2019.

The successful candidate will have a passion for supporting, and advocating for, young people in developing confidence and competence in the English language. We are a relatively small school so that, although the role mainly involves teaching EAL in our primary school, willingness to work with older children and to collaborate with Learning Support colleagues would be very welcome.

If you would relish the opportunity to work with great students and teachers in a school with undeniable forward momentum, then we would love to hear from you. Please do take a look at our website (www.kisu.com) to learn a little more about us.

Uganda is a very beautiful country with a reputation for economic and political stability and for welcoming visitors and Kampala makes an excellent base from which to explore the wonders of the region from the Mountain Gorillas of western Uganda to the historic treasures of Zanzibar.

Applications should be submitted by December 21st  to recruitment@kisu.com ; please include

  • a copy of your CV
  • the names and contact details (including email addresses) of three professional referees
  • a short cover letter outlining your educational philosophy and approaches to planning and facilitating learning


We expect to interview candidates in person in London in January. However, earlier interviews via Skype for outstanding candidates are a possibility.

The successful candidate must be willing for us to undertake rigorous safeguarding checks.
