Panyathip International School - The British International School in Laos, is looking for an English specialist for its Savannakhet Campus. This campus is just coming to the end of its fourth year having been started to support the development of Savannakhet about an hour's flight from the capital Vientiane.
Our school has grown to almost 150 pupils from Nursery to Year 9. Next year we will add Year 10 (though we do not yet have plans to introduce IGCSE exams in the immediate future). In many ways the school is like a large family and because of its size all staff have to be comfortable supporting all age ranges at various times. Classes are small and the team has a strong collegial approach and relationships with the community are positive. .
The ideal candidate will be someone who is comfortable and experienced in teaching students for whom English is an additional language. We are looking for someone who will bring ideas to make English an exciting vibrant subject and who will think 'out of the box' for ways to develop the subject in the school. An understanding of differentiation and plenty of enthusiasm are prerequisites.
Savannakhet is a large town separated from Thailand by the mighty Mekong river. The border with Thailand is literally 5 minutes from school and the town of Mukdahan possesses a range of amenities including big stores, an international hospital and more. For those with a sense of adventure Savannakhet is an ideal location to be - and this is a particularly good time to join us as 2018 is Visit Laos Year with lots of cultural and other events.
