Spectrum International School is a non-profit private school executing under the umbrella of BILIM ORDA International Foundation that runs a network of private schools and a university all over Kazakhstan. The School caters for a range of local and international students residing in Astana, the new vibrant capital of Kazakhstan. 

The School has a purpose built building that is situated in the newly erected part of the city and offers its students excellent modern facilities for learning and recreation. The curriculum in Primary and Secondary follows Cambridge International Programmes including Cambridge Primary, Secondary 1 & 2, and Advanced Level. The curriculum is also enriched with very few local subjects such as Kazakh language, History & Geography of Kazakhstan to meet the needs of our local students.  As part of external assessment, our students sit a set of Cambridge International examinations like Cambridge Primary and Secondary Checkpoints, Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS/A Levels.

We are a regular member of the Council of International Schools (CIS), a premium member of the European Council of International Schools (ECIS), a registered centre for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and Authorised Cambridge English Language Assessment Centre.

Candidates are expected to possess a commitment to creating and managing a caring, supportive, purposeful and stimulating environment which is conducive to student’s learning, and to be able to adapt to new cultures, environment and climate easily. 

The majority of our students are local nationals, for whom English is not the First Language. Besides, we have fluent English speaking local nationals and expatriates and their number is growing year by year. 

The School Board has decided to embark on a rebrand of the school name soon but it will not affect the operation of the school in any way.

Minimum requirements:

Speaker of English as a First Language

At least three year full time teaching experience

Bachelor of Education Diploma (or Bachelor of Science Diploma plus Teaching Certificate)
