International School Michel Lucius seeks a qualified Teacher of Special Educational Needs to contribute to our dynamic and recently opened primary school. As an innovative and continuously evolving international school, the successful candidate will work in a collaborative school alongside a diverse team of teachers with a wealth of professional experience.

The School

International School Michel Lucius is a state-funded secondary and primary school, located in the heart of Luxembourg’s capital. Lycée Michel Lucius has been providing a high quality education to secondary-school aged students for fifty years. In response to Luxembourg’s fast evolving, highly cosmopolitan and international population, Lycée Michel Lucius created an English language international stream in 2011 which has since grown into a diverse and high quality International School that serves over 400 students, representing more than 70 nationalities. The new International School is an integral part of Lycée Michel Lucius, an inclusive and flourishing learning and teaching community of 1500 students and more than 150 members of teaching staff.

An international English-medium curriculum is taught throughout the International School, leading to (I)GCSE qualifications and culminating in GCE A Levels.

In September 2017, ISML Primary opened its doors to a highly international population of pupils from over 45 countries.

The Role

We are looking for a well-qualified SEN specialist with a proven record of teaching children with SEN. The successful candidate will be expected to develop and implement SEN policies and procedures in collaboration with the school management. With regards to coordination, the SEN Specialist at ISML will have the opportunity to support class teachers with creating inclusive classrooms where SEN pupils can flourish. Additionally, the SEN teacher will work with learners on an individual basis or in small groups, as required. As an international school, spanning both primary and secondary education, the successful candidate will also have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues in the secondary school and to contribute to valuable transition work.

This multifaceted and exciting position requires a flexible and innovative professional who would like to work in a school that puts the individual learner at the centre.

Teachers at the International School Michel Lucius are excellent classroom practitioners and are expected to work collaboratively, to reflect upon their own practice and to contribute to the ethos and vision of the school.

As a dynamic and innovative school we pride ourselves on acting in the interest of our students and supporting our teachers in the pursuit of their professional goals.

All teaching within the international school is undertaken in English. 

However, the successful candidate must have certified evidence of CEFR B2-level competence in one of Luxembourg’s administrative languages (i.e., French, German or Luxembourgish). Evidence of a B2 level must be provided when signing the contract. In addition, applicants must have a minimum of 5 years teaching experience and a valid teaching qualification from a member state of the EU or EEA.

For the role of Teacher of Special Educational Needs, a Masters degree in SEN is required.

The International School Michel Lucius offers motivated teachers a supportive and innovative teaching environment, allowing them to follow their passion for education. The school actively encourages and supports teachers’ continued professional development initiatives.

As government employees, teachers benefit from a generous salary, including extensive health, pension, unemployment and disability insurance.
