We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school, and have an excellent reputation for supporting children with special educational needs. Experience of teaching children with dyslexia, mild autism, ADHD etc. would be very good prior experience for a teacher wishing to join our team. Our Mission Statement commits us to meeting ‘all the needs of the individual learner’, and this applies equally to those students targeting the very highest grades at IGCSE and IB. Our work on Assessment for Learning, Growth Mindsets and, more recently, High Performance Learning is a very important part of this.
Candidates should demonstrate that they have experience of working in international schools advising students on higher education choices as a careers adviser or college counsellor. Particular experience of the US college system would be an advantage, as would the ability to offer a specialist high school subject, as there may be a small teaching responsibility attached to this position.
The closing date for application is 15th January 2015. First stage interviews will be conducted by Skype or telephone and final interviews will take place at the Nord Anglia Education Recruitment Event in central London between Tuesday 20th and Thursday 22nd January 2015 (alternative arrangements will be made for candidates who cannot attend in person).
