The British School Caracas was founded in 1950. We have slowly expanded over the years and are looking for inspirational teachers to join the team. We have 150 students in the Primary Section and 110 students in the Secondary Section. Our curriculum in the Primary Section follows the English National Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum.

The Primary Section is an exciting place to work! Many positive changes have taken place and continue to take place. If you would like to be part of these exciting times, we look forward to receiving your application. Our teachers are flexible, enthusiastic, motivated, excellent communicators and always willing to go the extra mile. We are committed to educating the whole child and are not simply a results factory.

In return, teachers receive a flight to and from the place of hire at the beginning and at the end of their contracts, a fully furnished apartment and health insurance. A generous salary is offered.

Interviews will take place via Skype and face to face interviews are scheduled in Manchester and London in January.
