Physics Teaching Opportunity in Mongolia (British National Curriculum)    

BSU has entered an exciting phase of growth and development and as such, we are seeking to recruit a dynamic, motivated and enthusiastic Teacher of Physics to join our successful teaching team. Due to an increasing demand on student admissions we have expanded our Primary provision in both EYFS and at the upper end of KS2. Our first cohort of Year 13 students completed their ‘A’ Level studies in June 2016 and Year 9 will move into 2-form entry in September 2019. This growth pattern is expected to continue year on year. 

BSU is a fully accredited member school of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS).  In 2018 we successfully achieved ‘Patrons Accreditation’, the new gold standard of accreditation with COBIS. BSU successfully completed the British Schools Overseas inspection in 2014, two years after opening its doors to students. BSU is accredited with the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) Board. 

BSU follows a curriculum based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Programme, the National Curriculum of England and Wales and Cambridge IGCSE and AS/A2 examinations. An experience of teaching Physics at GCSE and 'A' Level is therefore essential.
