English College in PragueCzech Republic

Date posted:
Start date: Late August 2018
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Permanent

The English College in Prague seeks a committed and creative teacher to join its thriving Science Faculty. We are looking for a candidate who can enthuse students, many of whom are academically excellent, and deliver lessons that are both exciting and rigorous. The College integrates ICT into its curriculum across all subjects so an interest in, or a desire to learn about, the use of ICT in teaching and assessment is essential, as well as strong subject knowledge.

Biology is taught throughout the school. Science lessons are taught in our recently refurbished laboratories, with a strong emphasis on practical and investigation work. All teachers have a timetabled period to meet with their colleagues and discuss and develop teaching ideas, and we are looking for someone who will embrace and contribute to this concept.

We look at all applications on an individual basis and the role of Head of Biology might be available for the right candidate.

We are an unusual, exciting and academic HMC secondary school educating both Czech and international students. We prepare our students for IGCSEs and for the International Baccalaureate, with our graduates proceeding to universities in the UK, continental Europe and North America. We offer the successful candidate adventure, challenge and good remuneration in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.

Staff Package:

  • We offer assistance, both practical and financial, for those moving to the Czech Republic
  • We usually fly successful candidates out in the term prior to their appointment for an acquaintance visit
  • The College contributes to a Czech occupational pension scheme
  • All employees enjoy the generous arrangements of the Czech health and social security system


The successful candidate will be a well-qualified graduate who has full Qualified Teacher Status (or equivalent) and experience of teaching up to university entrance level, ideally including Medicine and Oxbridge preparation. S/he will be joining a diverse and dedicated team who maintain a dynamic learning and extra-curricular environment in which the needs and talents of the individual student are recognised and nurtured.

Email the Headmaster, Dr. Nigel Brown, at headmaster@englishcollege.cz with a short covering letter and a full c.v. Please include a complete career history as well as the names, address and telephone numbers of two referees, one of which should be your current or most recent Headteacher.

Shortlisted candidates will be notified on or before 2nd May. Interviews will be conducted by either Skype, or in person in London or Prague (travel expenses will be reimbursed), depending on the circumstances. Previous applicants need not re-apply.

Contract Term: We offer a permanent contract after one-year probationary period.
Closing Date: End of 30th April
