Key Stage 1 Teacher

Jerudong International SchoolBrunei Darussalam

We are looking for an outstanding Key Stage 1 teacher who is committed to preserving the joy of childhood. Our Key Stage 1 classes effectively utilise play-based learning, retaining many features of our high-quality Early Years provision whilst weaving in the Key Stage 1 curriculum objectives. Our provision reflects the children’s interests. We believe in the educational powers of narrative, children as explorers and leaders of their own learning. We need you to have the highest expectations and to be a passionate, positive and caring advocate for the children in your class. We are looking for a teacher who is committed to individualised education based on excellent relationships and an understanding of their learners as unique individuals beyond the usual data points.

We offer outstanding, well-resourced indoor and outdoor environments, including our own Forest School surrounded by tropical jungle. Our children are amazing and will fully commit to the learning adventures that you jointly create with them. 

If you are the reason children run into school excited about the learning adventures that await, then we are the school for you.

Previous overseas experience is not essential. However, the desire to work in a genuinely international community is.

To apply, please complete the Application Form to be found in the Employment section on the school website where you will also find further details of the post. Please ensure your CV includes a recent photo, and full contact details, including email address, of two professional referees (one should be the applicant’s current and most recent employer). CVs without an accompanying Application Form will not be accepted. Applicants submitting an incomplete Application Form will not be shortlisted.

The closing date for applications is Friday, 3rd December 2021 although early applications would be most appreciated. Interviews will be by Google MEET or Zoom.

Applicants who have not been contacted by Monday, 3rd January 2022, can assume that on this occasion they have been unsuccessful and are sincerely thanked by the School for their interest.

The successful applicant must be available to commence employment in August 2022.

Safer Recruitment

The safe recruitment of all colleagues (including consultants/ contractors/ supply teachers, activity providers and volunteers) in schools is the first step to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children in education. 

At Jerudong International School we ensure the practice of safe recruitment in checking and recording the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children.

As part of the safe recruitment procedure, we will require the following information prior to starting work at JIS:

-     Up to date police records from a teacher’s country of origin and previous country of employment.

-     Two references, one of which must be from the current employer. If a teacher has worked in two or more schools, within 5 years, telephone contact will be made with those schools to ask why the teacher is leaving and if there were any concerns of a safety nature with children.
