For the coming school year, beginning August 2022, we are seeking to appoint a highly qualified and exceptional teacher of English Language and Literature with a particular focus on the upper years, KS4 and KS5, teaching English at IGCSE and A Level (as well as some KS3 classes).
Teachers who are not fully qualified and certified teachers of English, and without a relevant degree and experience, need not apply for this position as such applications will not be considered. TEFL/CELTA/TESOL is in no way sufficient.
The English department at Lanna is very focused on the importance of reading, writing and developing English skills that facilitate success across the whole curriculum. Within the school teachers are encouraged to be innovative and also remain aware of contemporary educational research and how this can inform and improve curriculum delivery. Indeed, departmental members are encouraged to collaborate and participate in action research.
We are seeking a teacher who can bring insightful ideas and innovative classroom practice to engage students. The successful candidate will be an experienced educator, ideally with the additional experience of working with non-native speakers to develop academic writing skills. We are a true international school, therefore, a PGCE (or equivalent full teacher certification) is essential. In addition to this, the successful candidate will ideally have experience of teaching English within a UK framework at both IGCSE and A Level. The successful candidate must be confident and secure in their knowledge of English at KS3, 4 and 5.
At IGCSE we currently follow the syllabus of Cambridge International Examinations with English being offered as a First Language, Second Language and also Literature. At A Level we offer combined Language and Literature following the Edexcel syllabus.
The successful candidate will join a highly focused department that consistently achieves excellent results at both IGCSE and A Level. This is an opportunity to work alongside many dedicated, able and passionate Secondary teachers within a small, but highly successful, innovative, and not least – very friendly school.
The school promotes high standards in all areas, not just academics. As such, you will be expected to take a full and active role in the life of the school; not only within your classroom and your own subject area. See the Co-curricular section of our website for details of some of the many school activities that take place, and that you would be expected to volunteer to be involved with in some ways.
We are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, therefore all applicants must be willing to undergo rigorous child protection screening, including checks with past employers and criminal background checks. These checks are always made.
