Computing Leader

Wellington College International School Bangkok is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and operates recruitment procedures in line with the most up-to-date and rigorous guidelines from the UK.  

We are looking for a dedicated, tireless, flexible, inspired, thoughtful, resilient, dynamic, reflective and creative Computing teacher to lead our provision across the Junior School in the first instance and then, possibly, the whole school as we grow through into Senior.  Computing is an area of huge importance in a school - and it needs a relentless champion who will ensure that it is placed at the heart of the school.

Beginnings are such delicate times, as Frank Herbert says; he is certainly right when it comes to new schools: every member of our founding team must be ready to understand this delicateness, at the same time working robustly to build, strengthen and solidify the nascent ethos and culture of the school.  Wellington College Bangkok is very fortunate to have the full support of our sister school in Berkshire as well as enormous assistance from the existing schools that make up Wellington College China.  Ours is a global set of connected - yet very definitely independent - schools each of which has a clear imperative: to change the world for the better by being extraordinarily good institutions.

Please read the brief Job Description below in conjunction with the Class Teacher Job Description, which you will find in the downloadable Recruitment Booklet.

It is very important for the post-holder to promote Computing, Coding and linked areas strongly across the School and in the wider community.
