Our School

Hartland International School opened in September 2015 and is rapidly developing a reputation for excellence in learning and teaching in Dubai. We provide the best possible education for every child in our care and import the very best practices from independent schools around the globe. We combine a unique blend of academic challenge, enrichment opportunities and pastoral support to target excellence and create a values based community of teachers, children and parents.

Located in the heart of Dubai, in a developing residential community, Hartland’s unique vantage point is the iconic landmark of the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Mall and Downtown Business area of the city. The school currently operates from Foundation Stage to Year 8 and anticipates natural year on year growth in the secondary section in the coming years. We offer enhanced National Curriculum for England and plan to offer GCSE’s / IGCSE’s, ‘A’ Levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

The Post

Though all of our students speak English, over 60% come from homes where English is not the first language. The intellectual capacity of the cohort means that they very quickly adapt and make excellent progress, however, upon entry, some children need that additional support to ensure that they can fully access the curriculum. At this time, we are looking to appoint an experienced EAL Teacher who has worked in a Primary setting. You must have the confidence to plan and deliver lessons to small groups of children across the full age range and be able to demonstrate a good understanding of the phonics and handwriting courses in lower primary phase.

Applications are invited from practitioners who are passionate and forward thinking and who will thrive in a vibrant learning environment. The successful candidate will join an experienced and committed staff team and will operate in a school where facilities are of an exceptionally high standard with to ensure the highest quality of delivery.

The successful candidate will:

  • Hold a relevant degree, teaching qualification and a qualification such as CELTA
  • Have experience of teaching the National Curriculum for England whether that be in the UK or in an international setting
  • Have a minimum 2 years’ experience
  • Be committed to the Hartland Values


As a member of the Hartland team, you will share in the responsibility for teaching, learning, enrichment and pastoral care and will be someone who can thrive on the challenge of growing a new school and community. The school is also committed to supporting and promoting continuing professional development. 

In return, you will receive a competitive and attractive tax free salary, high quality fully furnished accommodation, private medical insurance, family allowances where applicable and annual airfare to home country with End of Service Gratuity.
