St. George’s the British International School, Cologne, Germany.

St. George’s School seeks a well-qualified professional to teach Economics in our flourishing secondary department, to begin August, 2019.

The School

Serving the international community in Cologne for almost 30 years, St. George’s School combines an enriching curriculum with family orientated care. The school has grown from small beginnings into a thriving community of over 800 pupils, aged from 2-18 and representing more than 40 nationalities. 

The National Curriculum is taught throughout the school, and we offer the IB Diploma in our Sixth form. 

One of a group of three schools located across Germany, St. George’s offers the successful applicant an exciting range of opportunities for professional development and growth across the school group. 

The Location

Located on a new, purpose built campus on the outskirts of Cologne, St. George’s School enjoys direct transport links to the city centre, as well as to the greater area of Cologne-Bonn. 

Germany’s fourth largest city, Cologne is a dynamic and vibrant cultural centre, with a large and diverse international community. Situated in the heart of Europe, Cologne offers a high standard of living, as well as numerous opportunities for travel and cultural discovery. 

Cologne-Bonn airport is located only 20km from the school, with many daily flights to the UK, and a high speed rail service connects Cologne to London, via Brussels. 

The Role

We are seeking to appoint a qualified Economics Teacher to work within our team of secondary teachers. 

The successful applicant will be a dynamic teacher with experience of enabling pupils to achieve their potential. We are looking for the right balance between experience, enthusiasm and a passion for teaching that will inspire our pupils. 

The secondary department covers the age range 11-18 and incorporates the curricula for Key Stage 3, IGCSE and IB Diploma. Familiarity with the British education system is therefore a prerequisite. Experience of IB teaching is preferred, but not required.  

Economics is a popular subject in our Upper School, where pupils explore a broad range of topics relating to the economics of the developed and developing world, explore data handling techniques and analysis, and develop a maturing appreciation of economic policy decisions and their impact.

Given the growing and developing nature of the school, flexibility and the desire to support other team members is a prerequisite. A strong desire to contribute to the rich pastoral and extra-curricular life of the school will also be an advantage. 

Please download our application pack for detailed information.

Only applications made through the TES online portal will be considered. 

We require additional information for your application, please upload the following via the supporting documents link:

1.  Your passport information page or ID card

2.  A copy of your degree certificate and teaching qualification.

Please note that a teaching degree or post-graduate diploma (B.Ed, M.Ed, PGCE or equivalent) is required for this role. Unqualified teachers, or those only holding TEFL or ESOL qualifications, will not be considered. 

Applications should be submitted by the closing date of Sunday, 21st April. The school reserves the right to contact outstanding applicants in advance of this deadline.

St. George’s is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will therefore be subject to enhanced background checks.
