The British School of Almería, is an inclusive all-through school which provides a comprehensive, high-quality education to pupils from the ages of 3 to 18. Recently incorporated into the prestigious ISP group, we are now a well-established school which offers a British-based education to local and international students in a beautiful coastal area of Andalusia. The school is located one site and boasts bright, modern facilities. Our school has grown steadily over the last few years and we are now entering a new, exciting era as we look forward to expanding our existing student base and increase our prominence in the local region.
We are currently seeking to appoint a dynamic and enthusiastic Secondary ICT teacher, able to teach a wide range of groups and levels including GCSE and A Level. He/she would be expected to effectively plan and deliver stimulating and engaging lessons, clearly establish high standards for progress and learning and encourage and support their pupils towards achieving their own individual goals.
The successful candidate will also coordinate the teaching and development of the ICT curriculum throughout the school, assisting with the implementation of a clear and comprehensive Primary ICT programme. He/she should be a strong team player with a clear vision of how to take the ICT department forward in future years. The chosen candidate should also have a practical and flexible approach to problem solving and be keen to play a central role in the continuing development and improvement of our thriving ICT Department.
At the British School of Almería, we aim to provide our pupils with a wide variety of opportunities which allow them to gain new experiences through which they are able to discover and develop their individual talents and interests. As such, we expect all of our staff to be actively involved in all aspects of school life through their participation in extracurricular activities and in our programme of events and activities which are planned throughout the school year. We have a strong commitment to child-centred learning and to addressing the specific needs of each individual pupil so that they can each be guided and encouraged towards achieving their maximum potential. The successful candidate should have experience of teaching across the ability range and recognise the importance of providing effective pastoral care. As a British school, we follow an adapted English National Curriculum across our primary and secondary departments.
If you are keen to form part of our forward-looking team, would like to play a key role in the future development of our school, we would be delighted to hear from you.
Initial interviews will be held by Skype with a face-to-face meeting for the successful candidate wherever possible.
