Are you an experienced and well qualified EYFS practitioner who is looking to develop your teaching skills in an international setting? Are you a committed Christian who would relish the chance to integrate your faith into your professional practice? Are you interested in living and working in a country so beautiful Winston Churchill declared it ‘the pearl of Africa?’ If so, then Heritage International School would love to hear from you. 

We are looking for a passionate and dedicated Early Years teacher to be part of a team committed to taking our EYFS provision to the next phase of development. We are aiming to have our provision fully accredited by ACSI next academic year and this position will be a crucial part of helping to achieve that goal.  You should have a good working knowledge of the British EYFS including assessment tools, resource development and creative planning strategies.

It is located in a purpose-built area of the school which has 4 classrooms alongside an outdoor space. 

Heritage International School is an all-age Christian international school located in the suburbs of Kampala, Uganda. It opened in 1994 to support children of ex-pat missionaries but has since expanded to welcome those of all faiths and none, whilst still remaining true to its core Christian values. We have over 40 nationalities represented and are currently moving towards our full capacity of 550 students. 

We offer a generous benefits package to our international staff including: a return flight per year of contract, housing, 2 bursaries for staff children, a competitive monthly allowance and medical insurance. Preference would be given to those candidates who can commit to a two-year contract.
