The growth of the Dulwich family of schools into Myanmar represents a unique opportunity for teachers to be involved in the development of a newly built and resourced school in the heart of one of Asia’s most fascinating cities. In partnership with Dulwich College and its nine sister schools in Asia, Dulwich College Yangon (DCY) upholds the traditions and outstanding educational standards which have become the hallmark of the Dulwich name in the UK and Asia. In 2018, Dulwich College International students achieved an IB average of 36.8 and A*/A average of 67% in the IGCSEs. 

The College currently operates across two campuses at the Star City and the Pun Hlaing sites.

Applications are invited from practitioners who are committed to further developing the P.E. curriculum and extra-curricular sports programme in a vibrant learning environment. The post will initially involve teaching throughout the Primary School and Senior School (to Y10) at the Star City campus. The sporting facilities at the campus are outstanding, with a double gymnasium, 20m training pool, 10 lane 50m Olympic-sized pool, dance studio, full size football/rugby pitch and 400m grass running track. 

At least 3 years teaching experience is required in the UK or overseas, preferably teaching the ENC, regardless of nationality. All applicants should hold a Bachelor’s degree in Education, or a first degree plus a post-graduate qualification in education (i.e. PGCE). Prior experience of organizing sports events, leading sports trips and working with local sports organisations is essential.

In return the successful candidates will be working in outstanding, purpose built facilities equipped with quality resources, set within Yangon’s award-winning Star City residential complex. Teachers will receive an attractive salary and a fully competitive overseas benefits package, including annual flight allowance, accommodation, freight allowance, comprehensive medical insurance, free tuition for up to two children at the school and enhanced levels of professional development across the Dulwich College International family of schools.

This is an excellent opportunity to make a difference in a newly established school. Dulwich College Yangon is also committed to using its position to actively engage with the local community and help contribute to the development of the country outside of the school.
