Here is a blog written by a candidate we placed at The Koc School last year, who writes about his positive experience of the school and the city.

The school and role

The Koc school is a excellent place to develop professionally. As the entry criteria for the Turkish students is extremely demanding, teachers get to work with bright and enthusiastic students and ignite their passion for further study. The school is set on the outskirts of Istanbul in an idyllic countryside location, and the campus is fully comprehensive, with lovely accommodation as well as amazing facilities such as a sports centre, football pitch and swimming pools.

The successful candidate will be required to inspire and challenge students and prepare them for examination. The successful candidate will be expected to teach Business and Management to ‘IB’ Diploma Higher and Standard levels, and possibly some Economics too.  Istanbul is a vibrant and energetic city famous for bridging the East and West.
