Contract type: Full Time
Contract term: Fixed Term – 2 years, renewable
AGS is a truly Global School situated in the beautiful country of Oman. The school operates an adapted British curriculum to suit the needs of the 34 nationalities of children currently catered for in the school. We are proud to be one of few schools that has an Independent Preparatory and Senior School system and the ethos and philosophy of all that we do is comparable to similar schools in the UK
We are part of the Al Najah group of schools. Al Najah has a strong reputation for delivering a quality education across the Middle East and beyond.
Living in Muscat
Oman is a welcoming, politically stable and friendly country. It has beautiful scenery, wonderful beaches, a very rich culture, and a sunny climate that enables a wide range of outdoor activities to be pursued throughout the year. It is also well situated for travel to other locations around the world.
It is hot and humid in the Coastal areas in summer; while it is hot and dry in the interior with the exception of the higher mountains, which enjoy a moderate climate throughout the year. Rainfall is generally light and irregular; although heavy rains and thunderstorms can cause flooding.
Teachers at AGS will be:
- Passionate, enthusiastic, innovative and ready to embrace the challenges and excitement of an International teaching career in the Middle East.
- Qualified to degree level in the chosen subject and hold a recognised teaching qualification.
- Able to demonstrate outstanding standards of teaching and learning.
- An exceptional communicator with the ability to work with students and parents alike.
- Ambitious and keen to develop and further existing knowledge and skills.
Experience of teaching in an Independent School setting would be an advantage, as would experience of working in the Middle East. However, a genuine commitment to support the school’s ethos along with a willingness and flexibility to adapt, would compensate. Experience of using effective differentiation and assessment techniques are, however, essential.
What we offer:
We are committed to developing our staff and provide professional development opportunities both in-house and via external provision.
We provide excellent, high quality accommodation for teaching staff during their first year of contract. We offer an attractive tax-free salary, medical insurance and an annual flight allowance.
