The Post

UWCSEA is seeking a qualified and experienced individual for August 2019 as a Learning Support Teacher in the Middle School on Dover Campus. The appointee should have recent Middle School teaching experience and hold relevant qualifications that support students with learning differences.

The Context

UWCSEA welcomes applications from all qualified candidates. We are committed to safeguarding our students and protecting them from harm. In keeping with the expectation that all staff and volunteers share this commitment, those applying for a position at the College must be willing to undergo employment background checks and screening appropriate to the post.

If you have a strong sense of adventure and an exceptional level of commitment to teaching and learning, UWCSEA might be the perfect next step for you.

Here are some reasons why:

  • Learn with and from leaders in international education. We provide a professional learning programme that  brings international experts to the school and ensures our teachers learn and grow as practitioners and leaders in their time with us
  • Work with exceptional students. Our students are a remarkable community of young people with diverse backgrounds and experiences who are united in a common purpose. In addition, as a non-profit organisation, we invest a percentage of income into scholarships for approximately 100 students each year. These scholars come from a wide variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.
  • Immerse yourself in a holistic education. Our academic results are outstanding, but our focus on holistic education means teachers are involved in all aspects of the programme. At UWCSEA you can take students trekking in the Himalayas or kayaking in Thailand, building houses in Cambodia or skiing in Switzerland. Equally, you can support them in making real connections with the local community, working with children with multiple disabilities or teaching life skills to domestic workers who have been the victims of violence. All our students and teachers, from Kindergarten 1 to Grade 12 are involved in our activities, outdoor education and service programmes.
  • Commit to a mission that guides everything we do. UWCSEA is a member of the UWC Movement, whose mission is to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. At UWCSEA, all our students from K1 to Grade 12 are developing the ethical dispositions that will empower them to embrace challenge and take responsibility for shaping a better world.
