A member of the Latin American Heads’ Conference (LAHC), International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) and the Round Square Organisation, Markham College, Lima, is one of the leading independent schools in South America. Markham College is a not for profit organisation governed by a Board of Governors.
With over 2200 pupils (3-18) and 360 staff across two campuses, the College has recently opened a new Nursery, a state-of-the-art Science Centre and is currently underway with a multi-million dollar plan to include the construction of world-class facilities for the Visual and Performing Arts and Sport.
Academic results at both IGCSE and IB level are amongst the best internationally. The Public Examination results over the last five years were particularly outstanding and are available to view on the College’s website. In 2012 three students were recognised by the Cambridge International Examinations Board for achieving the highest marks in the world in Co-ordinated Science, Computer Studies, Geography, History and Spanish Literature and in 2013 and 2014 one student was recognised for similar success in Physical Education and Food Science respectively. The majority of students take up places at leading universities in Peru and around the world including Stanford, Princeton, Columbia, Cambridge, Imperial College, University College London and The London School of Economics. Over the past two years four students have secured Oxbridge offers.
Working in tandem with Nottingham University in the UK, the College also offers colleagues the opportunity to participate in the Markham Initial Teacher Training Programme (MITT Programme). This innovative one year programme includes a week of induction with Markham College staff and members of the Faculty of Education at Nottingham University and offers local and international teachers an in-house programme of study, on-going training and mentoring leading ultimately to the award of the PGCEi for successful trainees
The College is looking to appoint a Business Studies Teacher in the Upper School from August 2017 to deliver IGCSE and with the ability to teach IB. The ability to teach Economics to IGCSE and IB level would also be desirable. Candidates should be advised that there may also be the expectation to teach a limited amount of hours in the Humanities or English Departments. Candidates should have a relevant degree and preferably a teaching qualification and be prepared to participate fully in the academic and extra-curricular life of the College. An understanding of the Round Square would be an advantage. The College has its own internationally competitive 12 point salary scale for foreign teachers ranging from US$55,218 to US$93,669 per annum, excluding allowances for posts of responsibility.
Applications with a covering letter and CV of no more than three pages should be sent as soon as possible and no later than Wednesday 30 November 2016 to the Deputy Head (Staffing), Nathan Eades, at Nathan.firstname.lastname@example.org and to the Head of Human Resources, Katrina Roper, at email@example.com from whom a job description and further information can be obtained.
