British Vietnamese International School
Ho Chi Minh City
The British Vietnamese School (BVIS) is the Premier Bilingual School in Ho Chi Minh City. It was set up with a clear vision to provide the best English-speaking international education and to nurture and protect the Vietnamese language and Culture. BVIS was the first school in Vietnam to follow this model and is a pioneer in high quality bilingual education. We aim for all our students to leave the school fluent in English and Vietnamese and to be ready for the best universities in the world. We have an outstanding team of international teachers as well as what we believe to be the very best Vietnamese teachers. We want our students to be inspired by you and will look to recruit even more of the best teachers from around the world. We will continue to support your professional development, to achieve our aim of providing the best Bilingual education in the world.
BVIS is a member of the prestigious Federation of British Schools in Asia and is fully accredited by the Council of International Schools. We have wonderful facilities and were recently shortlisted in the community category for the TES Independent School Awards 2018.
We are now seeking to add more outstanding teachers to our staff team.
Secondary Geography Teacher
A passion for innovative teaching and a strong desire to work in a leading international environment is essential to this role. The successful candidate will be able to teach Humanities to KS3 level and Geography to iGCSE and A Level. The department works alongside the EAL department, to develop student’s language proficiency, within the Humanities curriculum at KS3, so experience of teaching second language learners will be advantageous in this position. We are looking to appoint a new department member due to the expansion of the school roll and increased uptake by students in KS4. Geography students sit CIE International Examinations and the department has consistently achieved good external results at both iGCSE and A Level. The ability to teach another subject would be an advantage.
Join our fast-paced international environment, and you will deliver UK National Curriculum and IGCSE or International A Level programmes. You will challenge your students to set ambitious targets for themselves and seek out and implement innovative teaching practices to enhance the student experience and outcomes.
