We seek a talented and committed teacher to join our ESL team. As an English medium school where the achievement of a high level of English proficiency by second language students is a priority for both them and their parents, this is a high profile function within the school. There are excellent resources and consistent support.
The role would suit either an experienced teacher or a gifted younger teacher looking to take the next step in their career. The successful candidate will have a track record of high achievement, a high level of personal English language ability, and a commitment to the subject with enthusiastic and willing students. The successful applicant will be a self starter, rigorous in their preparation and delivery, and able to demand and demonstrate measurable progress.
All lessons take place in well-equipped facilities, with interactive whiteboards/interactive TVs as standard. There is a dynamic staff culture at the school, with excellent professional development, and an emphasis on the use of IT in a blended and realistic environment, achieving the best outcomes with varied approaches.
Malaysian work permits are usually granted for two or three years. Contracts are therefore fixed term, but continuity is important for the school and so it is hoped that appointments will be seen as longer term, with renewal of contracts common in the school. The school is proud of its staff stability, as most enjoy the lifestyle the region provides and the professional progression we actively promote.
Remuneration packages make possible a good standard of living and future planning for families as well as single appointees. Packages include health cover, contributions to EPF (Employees Provident Fund) and fully subsidised education for children both at POWIIS and our newly opened POWIIS Primary school. The package includes an overseas allowance, flights and housing allowance.
POWIIS is a boarding and day school that offers a full range of extra-curricular activities. Staff are expected to participate willingly in the wider aspects of school life and to develop their own interests as well as their professional skills.
There are openings for suitable candidates to look after boarding pupils as resident staff, which carries extra responsibility allowances.
Candidates should apply to the school directly at email@example.com sending a completed application form together with a brief letter of application and Curriculum Vitae. Additional material should NOT be sent at this time.
We will acknowledge all applications and keep applicants informed; we enjoy a high level of interest in our vacancies, but your candidacy is very important to us. Resubmission by previously unsuccessful applicants is welcomed.
