For August, 2018, we require dynamic and able Teachers of Music to join our school.

TISB has a thriving and successful Music Department. With nearly half the pupils learning a musical instrument, we are able to host regular recitals, concerts and events which are an exciting component of the school year. Extra-curricular ensembles include the senior orchestra and choir as well as numerous flexible ensembles, which successfully combines World and Fusion music with Western music. This is a distinctive feature of the department. A diverse and engaging curriculum is taught to all years leading into a strong uptake at both IGCSE and the IB diploma. A good number of students progress further and receive offers to study Music at some of the most prestigious colleges and universities around the globe.

The successful candidate will have prior teaching experience and a passion for nurturing an inclusive learning environment. An understanding of the IGCSE, IB and/or A-Level music curriculum would be an advantage. As TISB is a 3-18 school, there would be an expectation for those appointed to teach across the age range. Candidates with solely secondary or primary experience will be considered.

You will also have extensive knowledge of current best practice and will have outstanding inter-personal skills. You will have an openness to working within a multicultural setting, delivering a flexible and holistic curriculum.

 A competitive salary, commensurate with experience and which compares well to western rates will be paid. The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to Boarding and to after school co-curricular activities, for which accommodation on campus and other benefits will be provided.

Please send a letter of application, together with curriculum vitae including the contact details of three professional referees to the Principal, Peter Armstrong at school@tisb.ac.in
