We are looking for an outstanding Humanities teacher to join a small and highly committed team of specialists who are passionate about their subject and developing our students into confident learners.

In Guernsey, we can offer you a great work-life balance with our own unique curriculum framework which aims to promote positive mental health and wellbeing with an emphasis on outdoor learning where creativity, teamwork, critical thinking and independence is encouraged with the Bailiwick’s children and young people at its very heart.

Our new curriculum has been designed by our teachers, for our teachers with a focus on 'joyous and purposeful learning'. We have taken away the prescriptive nature of the previous curriculum allowing you greater scope and space for professional decisions about what and how you should teach, enabling you to plan creatively within broader parameters.

This opportunity to take control of your teaching mixed with a happy work-life balance and the chance to live on an island that has beautiful beaches, cliff walks, lots of outdoor activity options and island hopping trips is unrivalled.

We offer excellent relocation packages, as well as other enhanced benefits for housing and rental support, including a five-year employment permit. Identified pathways for training and continuing professional development are strongly supportive to provide you with a rewarding career. In addition, you can expect to:

  • Benefit from the stunning scenery and enviable quality of life;
  • Work in a well-resourced school with favourable PTRs;
  • Be part of a leading development of Humanities in education and be allocated a personal laptop;
  • Earn a competitive salary, above the UK median;
  • Participate in a well-resourced public service pension scheme;
  • Enjoy the benefits of more generous tax allowances on an island with no VAT.
