We are also the first High Performance Learning accredited school in the world. We recently opened our brand-new pioneering, 90,000m² state-of-the-art campus, which allows us to grow to a 10-form primary school, operating across two campuses, and a 10-form secondary school.

The opportunity

We are looking to appoint a dynamic and enthusiastic Science Teacher, specialising in teaching Chemistry to GCSE and A Level students, and KS3 Science, to provide maternity cover from February to June 2021.

Currently, the Science department at Doha College consists of 17 full-time teachers supported by three full-time science technicians. Lessons are taught in 18 purpose-built laboratories and the College follows a balanced science programme at Key Stage 3, in line with the English National Curriculum. At Key Stage 4, students opt for Edexcel IGCSE Chemistry and at A Level, students opt for Edexcel Chemistry. Experience of teaching Chemistry A Level will be seen as an advantage.

All our classrooms are equipped with interactive smartboards and displays, and all students are furnished with an iPad upon entry.

About you

To be successful, you will be an outstanding role model within the department and within the College as a whole. You should have demonstrated success in your current role, be highly motivated and above all else, have a real passion for the sciences. We will also expect you to contribute in a positive manner to all aspects of the school vision, including extra-curricular activities.

We are a British international school and all of our lessons are taught in English, therefore a high standard of written and spoken English is essential, along with a detailed knowledge of the UK National Curriculum.
