We invite applications for two positions in our thriving science faculty, as specialist teachers of physics. The role of Head of Department (of 4 specialists) is available to a suitably experienced candidate.

There is an emphasis on the use of IT in a blended and realistic educational environment, achieving the best outcomes with varied approaches. Students have their own devices. Since the foundation of the school in 2011, POWIIS has built a significant academic reputation in the region and internationally with excellent results, although we have students of a wide range of abilities all equally deserving of the highest quality of teaching to the level of their potential. The curriculum is based on the English system, and examinations are IGCSEs and AS/A2.

The staff is predominantly European, who share with high quality Malaysian and other international colleagues, outstanding facilities and resources.
