TBSC: WORKING IN THE PRIMARY SECTION
The British School Caracas was founded in 1950 and this year we celebrated our 70th Anniversary. We have slowly expanded over the years and are entering a new phase of development and so we are looking for inspirational teachers to join the team. We have 140 students in the Primary Section and 110 students in the Secondary Section. Our curriculum in the Primary Section follows the International Primary Curriculum and the English National Curriculum.
The Primary Section is an energising and rewarding place to work. Many positive changes are taking place, including the reinvigorating of our IPC programme. If you would like to be part of these exciting times, we look forward to receiving your application. Our teachers are flexible, enthusiastic, motivated, excellent communicators and always willing to go the extra mile; our community is a small one, but characterised by immense loyalty to and belief in the school. We are committed to educating the whole child and are not simply a results factory (although our examination results at IGCSE and IBDP levels are consistently excellent).
We are looking for a Year One Primary Teacher with sound knowledge of the English National Curriculum and preferably some knowledge or experience of the International Primary Curriculum. A minimum of two years’ teaching experience is required. In return, teachers receive a flight to and from the place of hire at the beginning and at the end of their contracts, a fully furnished apartment and health insurance. A generous salary is offered.
We are committed to Continuous Professional Development for all our teachers and place great importance in recruiting teachers who ‘fit’ into our team. Before applying, we strongly recommend that applicants read through all the documentation.
Please apply with a letter of application that must highlight why you would like to work at TBSC (and live in the exciting city of Caracas!), and five essential traits of an international teacher. Please apply by sending a letter of application and an up-to-date CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 6th August 2021.
Interviews will take place via Google Meet or Skype.
CHILD PROTECTION AND SAFEGUARDING
TBSC collaborates with the authorities in the UK, USA and other foreign agencies, as well as with private firms, who track individuals who violate child protection laws and participate in criminal activities. Should information be provided indicating that candidates have participated in activities related to either, TBSC will not proceed with applications and may report the candidate to law enforcement agencies.
