Taunton School was founded in 1847. It is an independent day and boarding school for approximately 1100 boys and girls, aged from 0 - 18 years, with approximately 400 boarders. We aim to challenge, inspire and nurture young people to succeed in a global community.
Taunton School International (TSI) was set up in 1996 to provide a first step for international students wishing to complete their education in a British school. It is located on the school campus, is fully residential and has places for 84 boys and girls aged 15 to 17 years. TSI and its Middle School (TSIMS) run Senior and Junior Summer Schools respectively, for a nine week period in the summer holidays as well as a number of short courses throughout the year.
The Summer School Director will hold primary responsibility for the recruitment of the target number of international students onto the six-week Summer School and ten-day Pre-Sessional Courses. The post will also have responsibility for the Summer School Coordinator, Summer School Academic Manager and Summer School Pastoral Manager.
The successful candidate will be ambitious and highly motivated and will enjoy the challenge of growing the summer school and other summer programmes over time. A background in organising and running Summer Schools is essential and TEFL qualified status (TEFLQ) as recognised by the British Council is an advantage but not essential. An understanding of the international education industry is essential to this role. A skilled communicator, you will be able to interact with, persuade and influence at all levels; you will be organised and driven with good attention to detail.
