Digital Learning Coach (Secondary)

The Sheikh Zayed Private Academy for BoysUnited Arab Emirates

The Sheikh Zayed Private Academy for Boys is a leading US Curriculum school, delivering an outstanding education from KG – to Grade 12. SZPAB has, since opening in 2015, already established a reputation across the UAE for its high quality education, modern facilities, innovative use of technology and 1 to 1 iPad program.

The school was listed as one of the top 10 schools in the UAE and won the best blended curriculum in the UAE in the Schools Compared Awards 2018. We have received a Band A rating from ADEK (Ofsted equivalent), who identified the use of technology to enrich the curriculum and the Learning Support department as ‘Areas of Distinction’ across the UAE. The school is the first K-12 school in the UAE to achieve Apple Distinguished School status.  SZPAB is accredited by NEASC and is a CIS candidate school.

We wish to appoint a committed, and motivated individual to work with the Digital and Innovation Team in supporting teachers to effectively integrate digital and innovative approaches which enhance differentiation, assessment, and student / teacher dialogue and help each student achieve his or her full potential.   

The nature of the role means that the successful candidate will be required to quickly establish positive working relationships across the entire (K-12) school community.  This will include working with students; delivering small-group and whole-staff PD; and launching digital and innovative initiatives to the parent community.  Recent classroom experience coupled with demonstrable experience in, and enthusiasm for, using Digital Technology to enhance learning is more important than an IT background.
