Teacher of Biology or Physics or Chemistry and General Science

Le Régent International SchoolCrans-Montana


We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and inspiring Science teacher both of General Science and as a specialist teacher of Biology or Chemistry or Physics up to and including IGCSE Double or Triple Award and the IB from September 2022. This flexibility is possible because of current staffing and projected growth. 

Founded in 2015, Le Régent is a rapidly developing Swiss boarding and day school with an international academic programme. Just over 200 students from Switzerland and around the world are educated in a modern campus in the heart of the Valais Alps in the attractive and lively ski resort of Crans-Montana. Le Régent has been under the guidance of Institut Le Rosey (www.rosey.ch) since August 2019.

Le Régent follows a rigorous academic programme in English in preparation for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and for its own diploma, the Régent Graduation Diploma, while nurturing the individual talents of each student with its diverse extracurricular offering, including sports, arts, music and mountain activities.

Junior and Secondary school students follow the IPC and an adapted version of the UK curriculum and Pre-IB leading in some cases to IGCSEs and then the IB Diploma, where the school offers SL and HL courses in Biology, Physics and Chemistry and ESS at SL. Teaching allocations are shared across the department and we would hope to appoint a candidate able to teach at all secondary levels and even potentially one of the olderJunior years.

Academic standards are high, class sizes are small and the international student and teaching body ensures an interesting and stimulating classroom and school atmosphere. The school’s exceptional location and outdoor education programme and the chance to ski during the winter season are important attractions for both students and staff.

About half of the school population is made up of day students, boarding life is vibrant and many local children take the opportunity to experience boarding on a flexi model. The successful candidate will have the positive outlook required to be part of a boarding community and provide a positive presence in the school. In particular, the candidate will have the drive to foster a love of learning allied with high academic standards .

The post will probably be non-residential but could be combined with a residential boarding tutor’s position for the right candidate. Applicants should therefore indicate their interest and experience in this possibility.

UK AND OTHER THIRD COUNTRY APPLICANTS

UK nationals should be aware that regulations to obtain a work permit are both  lengthy and considerably tighter for third-state (such as UK) nationals than they are for most Europeans. Although it is possible that we will appoint a UK national,  preference will be given to candidates possessing a Swiss residence permit or an EU passport.

RECRUITMENT PROCEDURES

We reserve the right to appoint the right candidate ahead of the closing date. Appointment to take effect from September 2022.

Applications should be through the TES website. Closing date for applications: 15th December 2021. 

Le Régent is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. Applicants will therefore need to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post.
