British International School of Tbilisi (BIST) is looking to recruit dynamic, committed staff members for our exciting and unique not-for-profit independent school. BIST currently provides for about 250 children aged 3 to 15 from approximately 35 countries. Our modern purpose-built campus, which extends over 15,000 square metres, is situated next to a natural lake, on the hills overlooking the city of Tbilisi. The state-of-the art facilities incorporate many important features that support innovative teaching and learning in the 21st Century. We adapt the English National Curriculum alongside the International Primary Curriculum to offer a creative and flexible curriculum that leads to Cambridge IGCSE at Key Stage 4. In September 2019 the school will start its A Level programme. The school is a member of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS).
Teacher being sought for the following post (for August 2018):
Lead teacher of French and/or Spanish
BIST students and staff are committed to supporting the wider community through our wide-ranging BIST community programmes. All teachers also support and contribute actively to our cross-curricular days and weeks, our diverse programme of extra-curricular activities, and the PSHE programme. Secondary teachers will be expected to teach their subject to IGCSE level and to prepare students for A Level in the 2018-19 academic year and then also offer AS and A Level courses thereafter.
The successful candidates will have recent UK/international experience, be highly motivated, well organised and possess UK qualifications (or equivalent internationally recognised qualifications). An understanding of the benefits and challenges of living in a rapidly developing country is an advantage.
Staff members at BIST enjoy a stimulating, supportive working environment and pay and conditions compare very well with other international schools in the region. BIST net pay scales are above UK net pay scales and this is enhanced with an annual air ticket, full medical cover, a housing allowance and the opportunity to work and live in a beautiful and fascinating country. The successful candidates will join a team of enthusiastic and committed staff in this highly popular and well-regarded school.
