Date posted:
Start date: August 2018

Contract term: Permanent

A member of the Latin American Heads’ Conference (LAHC), International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) and the Round Square Organisation, Markham College, Lima, is one of the leading independent schools in South America.

With over 2200 pupils (3-18) and 360 staff across two campuses, the College has recently opened a new Nursery, a state-of-the-art Science Centre and is currently underway with a multi-million dollar plan to include the construction of world-class facilities for the Visual and Performing Arts.

Academic results at both IGCSE and IB level are amongst the best internationally.  The Public Examination results are outstanding and are available to view on the College’s website. Three students have been recognised by the Cambridge International Examinations Board for achieving the highest marks in the world in Co-ordinated Science, Computer Studies, Geography, History, Art and Spanish Literature and Physical Education.  The majority of students take up places at leading universities in Peru and around the world including Stanford, Princeton, Columbia, Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial College, University College London and The London School of Economics. Over the past two years, four students secured Oxbridge offers.

Working in tandem with Nottingham University in the UK, the College also offers colleagues the opportunity to participate in the Markham Initial Teacher Training Programme (MITT Programme). This innovative one year programme includes a week of induction with Markham College staff and members of the Faculty of Education at Nottingham University and offers local and international teachers an in-house programme of study, on-going training and mentoring leading ultimately to the award of the PGCEi for successful trainees.

The College is looking to appoint a Physics teacher in the Upper School, from August 2018. Candidates should hold a relevant degree, preferably a teaching qualification and be able to teach their subject to IGCSE and IB level and be prepared to participate fully in the academic and extra-curricular life of the College.  The successful candidate will be very experienced and have a dynamic approach to Teaching and Learning within a cross-cultural context.  Experience or interest in teaching trans-disciplinary courses alongside Physics would be an advantage, but not a necessity.  The College has its own internationally competitive 12 point salary scale for foreign teachers ranging from US$55,218 to US$93,669 per annum, excluding allowances for posts of responsibility.

Applications with a covering letter addressed to Mr. Nathan Eades, Deputy Head (Staffing), and a CV of no more than two pages should be uploaded to the school’s application system (https://jobs.markham.edu.pe) as soon as possible and no later than Monday 28 May 2018.
