Varee Chiang Mai International School is seeking an English Second Language Specialist to start in August 2018. The school follows the UK based CIE curriculum for Secondary, adapted for local use where appropriate. Our students are from various backgrounds, some native or near native speakers, whilst others require some additional language support. This position will include classes at Key Stage 3 as well as Key Stage 4 for the IGCSE in Second Language English.
Varee Chiangmai International School is a small but growing school with approximately 290 students on roll aged from 2-18 and is a fully accredited member of EDT (Education Development Trust). It is part of a larger Thai school and actively promotes Thai language and culture. Our Secondary School is growing meaning we need to create additional classes. The school is located close to the centre of Chiangmai, the bustling capital of Thailand's northern Lanna region: an area of misty mountains, Buddhist temples and diverse Hill Tribe cultures, as well as a thriving ex-pat social scene. Chiangmai has been rated among the top 10 most liveable cities in Asia. It has a laid back atmosphere, enjoys a tropical climate tempered by altitude most of the year, and, above all, is affordable. The lifestyle achievable means that most of our teachers renew their initial contract.
