Following a recent increase in student numbers KISU is currently looking to recruit additional high quality teachers. KISU offers a truly holistic education to students from 50 different countries, with staff from 10 nations. KISU is located in central Kampala in a low rise residential area. The school is based on a beautifully landscaped 25 acre plot and is near to up-market shopping and leisure facilities and adjacent to three of the more prosperous residential areas in the city. The school has excellent facilities including: an 8-lane swimming pool, indoor sports centre, auditorium, outdoor theatre, 2 amphitheatres, 3 IT labs, 2 libraries and 5 acres of playing fields. There are specialist teaching areas for Science, Art, Drama, Lego Robotics, Music and Food Technology. Most classrooms are fitted with interactive whiteboards. KISU offers a modified version of the English National Curriculum up to Year 9, followed by IGCSEs and then IB Diploma. KISU students are inclusive, diligent and very well-behaved and are proud of their school. The school's admissions policy is inclusive and there is learning support available to those who may need it.
We require a dedicated learning support teacher to join a fantastic team who are committed to child centered, inquiry based learning and put the needs of every child first. We are looking for a teacher who appreciates our holistic and inclusive approach and can support children with a range of learning needs. Many of our students have a varied educational background and whilst not having specific learning needs they do need support in achieving their potential. As an inclusive school KISU will enroll students with mild to moderate learning difficulties. When we feel we can support a student we will also look at more server learning difficulties on a case to case basis. The role of the learning support teacher will be mainly in the Secondary department and my include some EAL teaching as the need arises.
