The Post

We are seeking to appoint a well qualified Key Stage 1 teacher to join our friendly, efficient and extremely successful phase of the school.  The successful candidate will be required to teach a Year 1 class with full responsibility for their general classroom education and pastoral well-being. Our children are well behaved and highly motivated pupils with a keen desire to learn and excel.  At TES we follow the National Curriculum for England, adapting to suit our location and our diverse pupil body. We expect our children to be confident enquirers by the time they transition to the Prep department and to this end we promote enquiry based learning across the Pre-Prep school.  The successful candidate will need to be positive, enthusiastic and creative in their approach.
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 range is between £30,000 - £50,000 tax free depending on experience, further details on the generous remuneration package are available upon request by sending an email to
