A minimum of 2 years’ experience of teaching at Post-16 level is essential and experience of the IB Diploma Programme is highly desirable.

As the Languages team also contribute to the teaching of languages in the Primary School, experience of teaching at this level would be advantageous.

Amongst other things, you’ll be well organised, have a good sense of humour and will want to participate fully in the extra-curricular aspects of school life as well as the classroom. You won’t be afraid of hard work and will be relentlessly focused on giving our students opportunities for success both in and beyond the classroom. Experience of, or an interest in, being involved in developing the CAS element of the IBDP would be highly appreciated.
