A rare and exciting middle leadership opportunity has arisen at The English School, Kuwait. The Head of Science will have a proven record of outstanding teaching and learning in KS2 and KS3 Science. This teacher should also have an understanding of Science teaching below and above these age ranges, in order to liaise with the Pre Prep team and prepare students for moving on to new schools at the end of Year 8. As a core subject leader, this teacher should have good interpersonal and communication skills and be able to lead and support a team of teachers in the raising of standards and profile of Science across the school.
The successful candidate will be committed to our values and ethos; understand what excellence looks like within the subject of Science and be able to articulate how to achieve this to our school community. Candidates must 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.
If you have the requisite knowledge, skills and motivation, we urge you to apply for this exciting opportunity to be part of our team.
