The International English School of Castellón is currently recruiting for a teacher of geography to join our successful team for a fixed contract initially of one term. The post holder will be responsible for guiding our students through the KS3, IGCSE and A level geography courses and will be the sole geography specialist in the secondary school. The post has arisen due to the illness of our current teacher who is absent from work. The ability to offer a second subject would be an advantage. This is a very good time to join our growing school and we would like to think that this might lead to permanent a role in our school or in one of our sister schools from our group.
Our school is a friendly and popular independent British school located on the Mediterranean coast, north of Valencia. Castellón is a small, safe city with a wonderful coastline, excellent climate and good access to rail networks and airports.
We provide an education based on the 'British curriculum' to children from one to eighteen years of age. 88% of our children are Spanish and they experience a total immersion in English in school, learning English language in the same way as we acquire our own mother tongue.
The secondary curriculum is based on the National Curriculum in KS3 and Cambridge IGCSE and A level programmes in KS4 and KS5. We prepare pupils for external examinations allowing access to universities in Spain, the UK and other countries.
We are proud to offer our pupils a great variety of opportunities as part of their school curriculum. These experiences support both their emotional and academic growth. Children develop their talents and personal qualities in a caring environment where they are encouraged to flourish through personal reflection, challenge and support. We help, guide and encourage our pupils to develop confidence and self-discipline. The role of the teacher in our school is therefore much more than just teaching a subject, it involves enthusing, inspiring and caring for each child.
Further information can be found on our school website www.iepgroupcastellon.com and in the application pack, which has information about the school and the local area.
Please apply using the TES application form, although CVs and covering letters are welcome.
Applicants should be aware that we may begin shortlisting prior to the closing date.
