The International British School of Bucharest is currently seeking to appoint an Computer Science teacher to teach Key Stages 3 - 5, with evidence of student success in Key Stage 5.
This position is currently open and as such we are looking for a person to start immediately. We also however have a supply teacher, so if necessary we can accept a teacher to start August 21.
The International British School of Bucharest is a COBIS, ECIS, CIS Accredited school, with 3 yearly BSO inspections. The school was last inspected in November 2014, and was rated Good-Outstanding.
Class sizes are small, with up to 15 students in KS4 and usually around 5-10 in KS5, allowing for a high degree of teacher-student contact time and personal support.
The school has a 65% Romanian, 35% international mix, with around 170 students in the secondary school. The teaching environment is personalised and friendly, with many successful programmes set up to support and extend students at both ends of the spectrum. 95% of students graduating continue on to university, with 4-5 students selecting a computer based degree each year. UK is the main destination of choice, followed by the Netherlands. Approximately 25% of graduates are accepted into top tier universities. Behaviour is excellent with little more for teachers to deal with than minor low level disruption.
Staff turnover is very low at IBSB, with most staff having brought apartments and houses, owing to the comfortable lifestyle offered in Romania, a country with 4 seasons, mountains, a beautiful coastline, and the ability to save a large portion of your monthly salary. This is therefore an excellent opportunity for the right person looking for a great school in a really lovely city.
The staff environment is welcoming and supportive, with groups of staff regularly attending Wednesday Quizz Night and the traditional end of week Friday staff social. Staff also regularly head away on the weekends together and during school holidays exploring one of the many beautiful old Germanic-styled towns scattered across the Carpathian mountains, skiing in the winter, visiting the black sea coast in the summer, and taking the opportunity to use the low cost airlines to visit Greece, Italy, Turkey, and many other countries a short flight way.
