Upper Key Stage 2 Teacher
As we move to our new campus at Barwa City we are looking for applications from enthusiastic, hard-working and talented teachers who wish to develop their teaching career in an international setting. If successful, you would be joining a very supportive committed group of professionals with a mix of young and more experienced teachers. You will be working in a five star environment in a brand new, purpose built, and state of the art school.
We follow the English National Curriculum which has been modified to meet the needs of our students who represent 50 different nationalities.
We place a lot of importance on stage as well as age, so we are interested in hearing from teachers with a wide range of experience of all Stages of Learning. If you have teaching experience of more than one Key Stage we are keen to hear from you.
Our teachers need to be creative, caring and passionate about children’s learning. Our classrooms are active and our students participate in their learning.
As most of our students do not have English as their mother tongue we place a lot of emphasis on speaking, listening and learning to read, so they read to learn. Experience of teaching children with a similar background will be essential.
