Expiring soon

Head of MFL

Southlands International SchoolItaly

Are you an amazing linguist looking for a new role in a small and growing school?

Southlands International School is looking to appoint an ambitious and committed teacher to join our team and help to make MFL lessons even better!  You will be an effective and engaging classroom practitioner who knows how to get the best out of students and enjoys working collaboratively with colleagues.   A great communicator and passionate advocate for your students, you will be dedicated to enabling them to become fluent and confident users of French or Spanish.

A strong subject knowledge base is essential, as is the ability to inspire and support all students, irrespective of their age or mother tongue.   Ideally you will have experience of teaching both IGCSE and IBDP courses in French and Spanish.   Languages are an area of strength for us; most students sit their French and Italian GCSEs in Year 9 so that they can embark on a pre IB literature course or take up a third language in Year 10, both options prepare them to excel at IB level, with over half the cohort obtaining bilingual diplomas each year.

Our school is set on a spacious, green site to the south of one of Europe’s most historic cities. With just over 300 students aged 3-18 years, we have a strong commitment to the community we serve.  We believe in achieving both outstanding academic results and meaningful personal growth. The school is at an exciting stage of its development and this position provides an opportunity to develop  your teaching skills whilst working with some truly incredible students and colleagues

As part of the wider Globeducate group, our teachers are supported through access to an ever growing professional body of expertise and active collaborations with other international schools. We really value our teachers as professionals and there is great emphasis on allowing teachers the space to deliberately improve their practice through tailored CPD and subject-specific training.
