KS1 Primary / Early Years teacher
Southern International School, Hat Yai, Thailand (SIH) is looking to recruit a Key Stage 1 / Early Years teacher from April or August 2018. Please state when you would be available in your letter of application.
We are a young school, in only our third year of operation, but we are experiencing strong growth, particularly in our early years and primary sections. We currently have one class in each year group from Nursery to Year 1 but demand is very strong and we want to keep class sizes down, hence we are looking to expand and offer a second group where numbers demand it. This could be the Nursery (rising 3 year olds) in the first instance. The successful candidate will need to be flexible and willing to undergo training to deliver the IPC if necessary.
You will be supported by teaching assistants and professional colleagues. There are opportunities for strong and ambitious candidates to develop a leadership role in the school.
Any specialism in SEN, PSHE, Drama, Art or PE would be welcomed and should be referred to in your application.
Our children are mostly Thai and from other Asian countries with parents who are committed to giving their children an international education. Our parents are extremely loyal and supportive, and participate in many school events and activities.
The successful candidate will be joining the school at an exciting period in its development. There are opportunities to develop yourself professionally and personally in a safe, happy, supportive environment. Hat Yai is a wonderful, safe city that provides a great quality of life, and this partly explains why so many of our staff stay with us.
We will contact your referees unless you specify otherwise. Shortlisted candidates will be sent more details including the current staff handbook.
Please read the job description and person specification, and look at our website and Facebook pages to get a feel for working in SIH and living in Southern Thailand.
NOTE: We reserve the right to interview and offer to a strong candidate prior to the closing date. It is strongly recommended that candidates submit their applications as soon as possible.
Southern International School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Please note that should your application be successful a police check will be undertaken in the country of origin; in the UK, a disclosure will be requested from the UK’s Disclosure and Barring Service.
