Are you an enthusiastic, well qualified and experienced English Teacher, who has a love of learning, is passionate and full of energy? Then this is the right opportunity for you!

Doha College is a high profile leading British International School, for children aged 3-18, offering a well-balanced, all-embracing curriculum that follows the UK National Curriculum. We are also the first High Performance Learning accredited school in the world. With consistently outstanding educational achievements and excellent examination results at all levels, Doha College will be expanding over the next two years, to meet the ever increasing demand for places at the college and grow into a 10-form primary and 10-form secondary school operating across two campuses. 

We are now looking to appoint experienced, dynamic and enthusiastic English Teachers to start in September 2019, with the ability to teach from KS3 to A-Level, and with a genuine passion for teaching and learning at KS3. Experience of delivering both literature and language at A-level would also be an advantage; the opportunity for AS and A-Level teaching is available for candidates with the appropriate subject knowledge and capability. As a teacher of English, you will be responsible for delivering high quality, engaging and well-resourced lessons across all key stages; contributing to departmental planning; monitoring and evaluating student achievement; and contributing to the accomplishment of the college’s vision and mission. As the successful candidate, you will be an outstanding role model within both the English Department and Doha College as a whole.

The English Department consists of 7 full-time and 2 part-time teachers who deliver a balanced English programme at Key Stage 3 in line with the English National Curriculum, tailored to meet the needs of our international student body. At Key Stage 4, students follow the CIE IGCSE English Language syllabus, together with AQA English Literature. At Key Stage 5, we offer both CIE English Literature and English Language as international A-levels.

All our classrooms are equipped with interactive smartboards and displays and all students are furnished with an iPad upon entry. The English department also offers a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities including COBIS writing competitions, an annual Poetry Evening, theatre trips to enrich student experience of set texts, and involvement with other schools – locally and globally – in essay writing, speech making and debating events. In addition, in conjunction with the Media department, we also produce the ‘Majlis’ – the biannually published school magazine created by the students, for the students.   

A combination of old-world hospitality and cosmopolitan sophistication mean that Qatar is a country like no other and its capital Doha is a city that has something for everyone. Performances, museums and galleries make for a captivating cultural scene; city hotspots such as the busy markets and the waterfront promenade are a great way to spend a day; there is a lively night-life that means that there is plenty to do when the sun goes down; the Pearl Qatar offers luxury and elegance; there are some breath-taking areas of natural beauty and lovers of sport and adventure can enjoy numerous clubs and activities and the arrival of the FIFA World Cup in 2022. Whether you will be looking to move with your family or to come on your own, you are guaranteed a warm welcome. 

Our salary and benefits package is recognised as one of the best in the Middle East.  Our staff receive a generous tax-free salary, a monthly accommodation allowance, an annual flight allowance and a substantial settling in allowance. We also have an effective induction programme for all new staff to support relocation.  We welcome applications from Newly Qualified Teachers who have relevant experience and excellent references.
