Applications are welcomed for the position of Vice Principal (Administration) at North London Collegiate School (NLCS), Jeju. Working closely with the wider Senior Team, you will ensure we continue to provide the very best educational provision for all our students.

NLCS Jeju opened its doors in 2011, established in partnership between North London Collegiate School, UK and the South Korean government. The school – with its excellent outcomes, dedicated staff and world-class facilities – has proven to be an extremely popular choice with parents and is currently expanding its Junior school in response to heavy demand for places. GCSE and IB results are formidable; four students gained a perfect IB Diploma score of 45 in 2018. It is an exceptional education based on high academic standards and a deep commitment to providing a well-rounded education. Students matriculate to some of the best universities in the world.

The successful candidate will have a strong philosophy, a track record of exceptional classroom performance, and will understand the needs of an ambitious, selective day and boarding school. You will be emotionally intelligent, culturally curious and able to build credibility with a high-performing staff, academically excellent student cohort and aspirational parents. You will share our ethos, values and commitment to ensuring that every child receives the support they need to fulfil their potential. Amongst the many responsibilities assigned to the role, you will lead on accreditation processes, work with NLCS UK to quality assure provision across the whole school and assume overall responsibility for the recruitment of teaching staff.

The school is set in a striking location. Jeju Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, 130km off the southern coast of the Korean peninsula, is often described as one of Asia’s best kept secrets. With its temperate climate, stunning natural scenery, array of rare and endangered wildlife and welcoming beaches, it is a fascinating and breathtaking environment in which to live. Educational provision on the Island is of strategic importance and in receipt of significant investment, attracting families from Busan, Seoul and farther afield.

We provide first-class professional development both through NLCS Jeju and the established NLCS educational community. This is an exceptional opportunity to develop your career in a leading international school.
