The Post

We are seeking to appoint an Early Years/KS 1 specialist, ideally with a proven track record of outstanding leadership in this area, to become our Head of Pre-Prep. The successful candidate will have a strong understanding of current practice, possess excellent interpersonal skills, be adept at managing a group of high quality staff, and confident in their own ability to oversee the education of 300 pupils.

This is an opportunity for an ambitious professional to become a member of the Leadership Team at an exciting time in the school’s development. The English School is one of the leading prep schools in the Middle East, is inspected by the UK based Independent Schools Inspectorate, and as a member of IAPS, COBIS, BSME and BSO, has a reputation for being at the forefront of educational trends. We are very proud of our school and the quality of education that it provides. The school has also been shortlisted in two categories for the 2018 British International School of the Year Awards - Senior Leadership Team of the Year and Digital Technology Initiative of the Year. If you feel that you have got what it takes to become a key leader and part of our team, we would love to hear from you.

Candidates must have British qualifications.  They are expected to hold a Bachelor’s degree and a recognised teaching qualification.  Prior experience in an international school setting is not essential.  If you are considering working overseas for the first time, or even have a significant amount of international experience, then Kuwait might just provide you with an opportunity that changes your life for the good and forever.  There is something magical about working at TES and Kuwait has a unique attraction which makes it difficult to leave. 

The salary will be commensurate with experience but will be in the region of £70,000 tax free per annum. Free accommodation will also be included as a part of this package. Further information about life in Kuwait is available upon request by sending an email to recruitment@tes.edu.kw.  

The Job Description is available here.
Applications should be made via our recruitment website http://recruitment.tes.edu.kw

The closing date is Tuesday, 6th February 2018. 

Interviews: Suitable candidates will be interviewed as soon as possible after an application is received.  It is therefore in the interests of candidates to respond quickly in order to avoid disappointment as we are keen to make an appointment as soon as we have found the right candidate.
