About your school
Nord Anglia International School Al Khor (NAISAK) is a 3-18 through school with 1000 pupils currently on roll. Secondary is 4-form entry in Years 7 and 8, and 2-form entry upwards, with approximately 360 students aged 11-18. Our school resides in the town of Al Khor, 35 minutes north of Doha (the capital of Qatar). We educate both local and expat students through a bespoke Secondary curriculum which draws on the English National Curriculum, The Qatar Ministry of Education Curriculum and a concept-based approach, with an explicit focus on teaching English language skills. Currently, the school is working to develop particular strengths in the areas of English language and STEAM. The school prides itself on fostering student wellbeing, personalisation of learning and a strong sense of multiculturalism and global citizenship, through a vibrant home-school partnership. We also have strong through-school links and ensure consistent progression from Primary to Secondary to offer all our students a rewarding learning journey. The Primary school buildings have recently undergone extensive refurbishment following the opening of our brand-new Secondary building in August 2019. Our students also now benefit from a new 25m pool.
Each Nord Anglia Education school is unique in character and designed to meet the needs of its community. We are united by our philosophy, to be ambitious for our students, our people and our family of schools. We believe that being part of our family of 69 schools gives them a special advantage. Working together, we can achieve more than we can individually. Our schools have access to a wide range of resources and support to enhance their success. We also create unique opportunities to benefit our students and people, such as the Global Campus, Nord Anglia University, and our collaborations with The Juilliard School, MIT, UNICEF and King’s College London.
About the role
Join our fast-paced international environment, and you will deliver a fit-for-purpose curriculum, built on the UK National Curriculum with a concept-based approach in mind, and IGSCE/AS-A-Levels. You will challenge your students to set ambitious targets for themselves, and seek out and implement innovative teaching practices to enhance the student engagement, experience and outcomes. You will adapt your teaching pedagogies to the needs of your students and integrate with agility English language skills in your lessons. You will understand the high profile of your subject in a school community that values scientific knowledge and professions, and contribute to promoting it further. Having the chance to teach in world-class laboratories, you will seek to maximise opportunities for hands-on learning.
For the right candidate, there is the possibility of an additional responsibility to lead STEAM across the Secondary School (Yrs7-13). The role would include fostering collaboration between Primary and Secondary so that students enjoy a clear progressive path in that field. It would also entail promoting our collaboration with MIT through participation in MIT-led challenges and trips, creating opportunities to embed STEAM in the Secondary School curriculum and looking for ways to inject rigour to our STEAM delivery.
PLEASE NOTE: expression of interest in the additional STEAM role is purely optional and it is not a requirement of the Chemistry Teacher role.
With the ability to create a classroom culture where there are no limits to what can be achieved, you will have a university degree in your specialist subject, a teaching qualification plus considerable teaching experience and knowledge of the curriculum. Receptive to feedback and ready to embrace change, you will be keen to share best practice with colleagues and peers.
A strong ambassador for the school, you will be able to develop new ways to engage students and parents with the wider school and Nord Anglia Education community. Your strong motivation and communication skills will also enable you to create a feeling of energy, excitement and personal investment within the classroom. You will also be able to meet visa-related restrictions for Qatar, including possession of a Bachelor’s degree and a teaching qualification from a face-to-face (non-online) course.
