The successful candidate will demonstrate a dynamic and creative approach to teaching, have experience of teaching English to IBDP or A Level standard, and have the necessary skills and vision to enhance teaching and learning within the department.

Meeting internationally recognised standards of excellence, the school is an accredited member of COBIS (the Council of British International Schools) and received an excellent recent BSO inspection report.

Applicants must be a fully qualified teacher (UK BEd or PGCE with relevant degree, or hold the equivalent recognised teaching qualifications from other countries), with a track record of improving and having a positive impact on children's learning. They should also have a minimum of two years’ experience teaching and be eligible to live and work in the EU.

We offer you:

  • A wonderful country and school in which to work
  • Students from a rich range of backgrounds who are motivated and have a love of learning
  • Passionate, committed and welcoming staff; outstanding teaching professionals
  • Supportive and aspirational parents
  • Excellent professional development opportunities
