The British School Caracas was founded in 1950.  We have slowly expanded over the years and are looking for inspirational teachers to join the team.  We have 170 students in the Primary Section and 120 students in the Secondary Section.  Our curriculum in the Secondary Section follows the English National Curriculum in Years 7-9, IGCSE in Years 10-11 and the IB Diploma programme in Years 12-13.

We are looking for a Secondary Music teacher who is also willing to teach some primary classes, with excellent knowledge of Music, some knowledge of the English National Curriculum, IGCSE and/or IB Diploma Programme.  A minimum of two years’ teaching experience is desirable, although we do offer NQT training for exceptional applicants.

The Secondary Section is an exciting place to work!  We are looking at increasing numbers in the next few years.  If you would like to be part of these exciting times, we look forward to receiving your application.  Our teachers are flexible, enthusiastic, motivated, excellent communicators and always willing to go the extra mile.  We are committed to educating the whole child and are not simply a results factory.

In return, teachers receive a flight to and from the place of hire at the end of their contracts, a fully furnished apartment, subsidised gym and club membership, and health insurance. A generous salary is offered.

We are committed to Continuous Professional Development for all our teachers and place great importance in recruiting teachers who ‘fit’ into our team.  Please click HERE to see why you should join our team (video created by our Year 9 students).  Before applying, we strongly recommend that applicants read through all the attached documentation and look through our website.
Please apply by sending a letter of application and an up to date CV to the Head of School, Yasir Patel,   Interviews will be conducted via Skype.
