About the school:

Traill International School has recently celebrated its golden jubilee, thus making it one of the most established schools in Thailand. One of the main characteristics of the school is the homely and supportive atmosphere for both students and staff: we believe that students can only excel when in a supportive and safe environment. We are fully accredited by Education Development Trust (EDT), British Schools Overseas (BSO) and Sor Mor Sor (Department of Education in Thailand), and are members of the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA), Bangkok International Schools Activities Conference (BISAC) and Thailand International Schools Activities Conference (TISAC).

We have students from KG up to Year 13 and we teach the National Curriculum leading to IGCSEs and A-Levels. Students leave the school to take up university places throughout the world, including the UK and US. Our examination results are above the national average in the UK and are better than most comparable international schools. Most of the students are either Thai or Japanese and we have a large ESL department to provide the language support which may be needed.

Class sizes are small with an average teacher:student ratio of 6:1.The students are well-behaved, resulting in a really enjoyable teaching experience for the teachers.

What we are looking for:

A key member of the School’s Senior Leadership Team, you will provide direction, inspiration and guidance to our primary teaching staff. Focused on developing a high performing team, you will be responsible for the smooth day to day operations of the primary school including staff development, performance management and deployment of resources.

Able to drive excellence by valuing and developing others, you will be a qualified teacher with extensive experience of both hands-on teaching and management in education. This means you will be fully up to date with curriculum developments in the UK. Strong on leadership and people management, you will have a flair for setting and meeting challenging performance targets. 

Able to work with a high degree of cultural sensitivity in our changing and fast-paced international environment, you will have the ability to use a range of communication strategies and channels. Your strong commercial, financial, market and organisational awareness will enable you to devise effective solutions to complex business challenges.

A limited teaching load will be expected.

The post will become available in January 2019, although an appointment for April or August 2019 will be possible for the right applicant.

Remuneration will be competitive.
