The British International School in Laos - requires a Teacher of English for the next academic year which begins in August 2020.  The vacancy will be at the Secondary Campus in Vientiane.

We are looking for a teacher who has a sense of adventure, who wants to be somewhere different or wants to work in a fast-expanding multi-campus organisation in an attractive developing country in S.E Asia. 

Panyathip offers excellent opportunities for Newly Qualified (NQT) and Experienced Teachers alike, since there are many opportunities for those who wish to develop their skills, take the initiative in bringing new ideas and play a part in the development of a relatively new, growing and  highly supportive school. 

The successful candidate will, initially, be expected to teach students in  in  KS3 and 4. 

The ideal candidate will be someone who is a self-starter and  has a clear knowledge of contemporary pedagogy.   Most of our students have English as a second or third language and so it is particularly important that the successful candidate understands the needs of these learners and is able to differentiate effectively. 

Experience in providing entertaining yet challenging  lessons, creating/using materials that encourage students to engage with the language and in producing schemes of work will be particularly welcome. 

In addition, those  who can offer extra curricular opportunities will be particularly welcome.

The School’s curriculum is based on the National Curriculum of England, and in addition in  Early Years we deliver the Early Years International Curriculum (IEYC), in the Primary School the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and in Secondary we offer Cambridge Checkpoints and IGCSE.  

The School has recently been elected to membership of COBIS (the Council of British International Schools) and FOBISIA (the Federation of British International Schools in Asia). 

Throughout our campuses students and staff are seen as individuals and classes are relatively small allowing the team to have a strong collegial approach. By and large our students are keen to learn and teachers are able to teach rather than have to maintain discipline.   

Living and Working in Laos  - the downloads available on this site  explain what living and working in Laos is like, and our application procedures can be downloaded too.  

Panyathip - The British International School in Laos is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff, volunteers and other third parties to share this commitment. Safer recruitment practices and pre-employment background checks will be undertaken before any appointment is confirmed.  Further details will be provided during interview.
