Garden International School is a coeducational school of around 500 students, with classes from Early Years to Year 13. We have approximately 40 nationalities represented in our community and use an educational framework based on the English National Curriculum, leading to IGCSE and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Many of our students have English as a second, or even third, language; these students are supported by a strong English Language Support department which works effectively to help them reach required levels of proficiency. We have a small boarding facility, and the school has a wonderful sense of community. Class sizes are generally small, with the students well motivated, engaged in their learning and supported by their families.
We are looking for two energetic, dynamic teachers to join our team. The Foundation section of the school is one-form entry in Early Years, and two-form in Nursery and Reception, with class teachers, specialist teachers and TAs working closely together to deliver our unique curriculum based on the UK Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. The successful candidate will be an excellent all-round teacher with good organisational skills, as well as initiative and a commitment to all aspects of school life. In addition, s/he should have a proven ability to communicate well through a variety of media, including online learning journals, with different sections of the school community. Experience of teaching the EYFS curriculum through topic learning and continuous provision, and a knowledge of Singapore Maths would be desirable.
Garden International School is fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and the Thai Ministry of Education (ONESQA). We are affiliated to the International Schools Association of Thailand (ISAT) and the Department for Education in the United Kingdom. We are also a founder member of the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA).
Ban Chang is a semi-rural coastal town in Rayong Province, about 2 hours from Bangkok and 45 minutes from the bustling tourist hot-spot of Pattaya. Thailand is a vibrant and exciting country with rich cultural experiences, it is a beautiful part of the world with year round sun and is a safe place to work overseas. The cost of living is very reasonable and teachers tend to avail themselves of high quality holiday experiences around the region.
Garden International School offers:
- Two year contract (renewable by mutual agreement)
- An attractive salary
- Health insurance and accident insurance
- Annual end of contract bonus
- Baggage allowance (for Overseas Hire Contracts)
- Flights (for Overseas Hire Contracts) at the start and end of the two year contract. Flights are also provided for legal spouse and up to two dependent children
- Tuition Fee remission for up to two dependent children
Aligned with the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection, we hold ourselves to a high standard of effective recruiting practices with specific attention to child protection. Appointed teachers from the United Kingdom are required to provide, at their own cost (of about GBP 60), and before travel arrangements are confirmed, an International Child Protection Certificate (UK) (refer: http://www.acro.police.uk/ICPC/). Full police clearance, covering at least the previous 10 years, is necessary for all appointees who are working, or who have worked, in countries outside the United Kingdom. To assist newly appointed staff, there is a country by country check list for the procedures for obtaining a police clearance: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/criminal-records-checks-for-overseas-applicants
