Are you a fully qualified PE teacher, with leadership and management experience as a previous Head of Function, interested in progressing your career at our established and respected international school in beautiful Mallorca?  If so, you will be interested in this fantastic opportunity.

We are looking for a fully qualified, inspirational, and highly motivated Director of Sports to join us from September 2018.  The post will specialise across the key stages and deliver the Edexcel International GCSE and A Level.

This is an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic Leader of PE  to make their mark on one of Mallorca's leading international schools.  The role will require teaching PE and competitive sports to both primary and secondary students, at both of our sites, just outside of Palma and Magaluf.

Living and Working in Mallorca: As a relaxed, friendly and cosmopolitan island, working in Mallorca has many benefits.  From the beautiful beaches and coves spread across its 550km coastline, to the majestic world heritage Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, the splendid landscape means you are never far from the mountains or sea.  The international city of Palma de Mallorca is also close by, one of Spain’s major cities, steeped in history, wonderful architecture, shops and restaurants.  With an added benefit of cheap and short haul transport links to the UK and Europe.

Baleares International College (BIC) is the largest British Curriculum school in Mallorca, providing education based on the English National Curriculum to over 580 students (from 4 to 18 years) across two campuses. The role would be responsible for the full PE and Sports provision at both sites.

We are accredited by the Spanish Ministry of Education based upon inspection and recommendation by the British Council and are a founding member of the National Association of British Schools in Spain (NABSS).  The school is also a member of COBIS, the Council of British International Schools and an examination centre.

The Orbital Education Group The Baleares International College is part of the Orbital Education group, an expanding group of international schools specialising in providing the English National Curriculum to an internationally diverse student population.  In addition to our two schools in Mallorca, we also have schools in Hungary, Slovenia, China, Russia, Ecuador, and the Middle East, with plans to develop schools in new regions across the globe.  In this role you would have opportunity to collaborate and work with teaching staff at our partner school, and at other schools across the group, to support our students achieve their potential.  After two years’ successful employment you would also have the option to be considered for roles at other schools across the group, providing the opportunity to progress your career while also seeing the world.
