The British School Yangon
Are you adaptable, resilient, a great team player and ready for something different?
The British School Yangon (BSY) remains open and is committed to our BSY families despite the challenges facing Myanmar since the Coup in February.
We are currently teaching online through our Virtual School Experience (VSE). We benefit enormously from the support and collaboration that comes with being part of Nord Anglia’s family of schools and this academic year we have set up a teaching base at our sister-Nord Anglia school, Regents International, in Chonburi, Thailand.
From here, we can continue with our VSE from a similar time-zone and with all teachers together. We will also be well-placed to return to Myanmar as soon as it is safe and possible to do so. Therefore, the successful candidate for this position must be prepared to move into Myanmar at any point this academic year.
About the role:
Are you able to demonstrate clear enthusiasm for teaching and developing? Do you have high levels of professionalism in all that you do? Are you a pro-active team player - positive, flexible and calm under pressure when working in a busy school environment? Do you ensure that the needs of the children are always your main consideration? If so, we would be delighted to hear from you.
