Greenfield Community School (GCS), founded in 2007, is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World Continuum school. It is one of only a handful of schools in the world authorised to offer all four IB programmes: The Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), Diploma Programme (DP), and as one of the first schools in the United Arab Emirates, the IB’s Career-related Programme (IBCP). With more than 80 nationalities in the student body, it is a diverse and truly international school.
We have a holistic approach to teaching, and boast some of the most innovative facilities in the UAE. These include: an auditorium, six lane, shaded competitive swimming pool, shaded Learning pool, two large sports fields, fully equipped gymnasium, tennis courts, dance and drama Studio, two Cafeterias, indoor and outdoor Play Areas. We have also recently opened the first mindfulness room in the Middle East for our students to meditate and take yoga classes. We are looking for teachers who share our vision, and a creative attitude towards teaching and learning.
Who are we?
As a Taaleem teacher you will join one of the largest, most respected education providers in the United Arab Emirates. Taaleem (which means ‘education’ in Arabic’) was established in 2004 and now has 9,000 students attending our 11 international schools and pre-schools in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Taaleem is also one of the Middle East’s leading IB workshop providers for PYP, MYP, DP and IBCP. We began training in 2009 and have enrolled over 3500 participants to date.
We recruit the very best international teachers who can deliver our international curricula in a creative, collaborative, and highly engaging manner. Taaleem is committed to inspiring students and helping them to identify and develop their passions and talents.
Greenfield Community School provides a high quality, creative and challenging international education for students in KG 1 to Grade 12, based on the International Baccalaureate Philosophy. We foster within each student, staff member and community member an enduring passion for learning and empowering each individual to become a caring global citizen. Our curriculum promotes a sense of global mindedness with language forming an important and integral part of the GCS world. In fact there is an opportunity to learn Arabic, French or German from Kindergarten onwards.
A Taaleem Teacher will be:
· Qualified to degree level and hold a recognised teaching qualification (eg PGCE)
· Able to demonstrate outstanding standards of teaching & learning
· Passionate, enthusiastic, creative and dynamic; ready to embrace the challenges and excitement of an International teaching career
· An exceptional communicator with the ability to work with students and parents alike.
· A competent user of all Microsoft Office programmes.
Experience of teaching the IB MYP science program would be an advantage, as would experience of working in Dubai. However, a demonstrable alignment with the ethos of the IB and a genuine commitment to international mindedness, would compensate. Similarly, experience working with the BTECH qualification would also be attractive. Experience of using effective differentiation and assessment techniques are, however, essential.
What we offer:
We are committed to developing our staff and run regular professional development workshops to ensure our teachers are equipped to provide students with the best possibly educational experience.
Taaleem provides excellent, high quality purpose built accommodation for teaching staff equipped with gym, pool and all amenities. We offer an attractive tax-free salary, medical insurance, free child places within selected schools and an annual flight allowance along with great corporate discounts with many service providers in Dubai.
