Founded in 1972 in the United Kingdom, the name Nord Anglia reflects the company’s beginnings in the north of England. NAE initially offered learning services such as English-as-a-foreign-language classes and grew during the 1980s by opening full-scale nurseries and kindergartens. In 1992, NAE opened its first international school, the British School of Warsaw. In the 2000s, the company began a strategic focus on premium international schools, with rapid growth in Asia, the Americas, China and across Europe and the Middle East. A truly international organisation, NAE now operates premium international schools worldwide. In July 2019, the company relocated its headquarters from Hong Kong to London, enabling even stronger growth in the future.
The school is currently looking to recruit a:
Spanish Language Assistant - (Local Hire)
Support the teaching and learning of Spanish as a Foreign Language throughout the school, ensuring high-quality educational outcomes for our students.
About the Department
The Spanish Department functions within a very vibrant and creative MFL Department at BIS, where French and Chinese are also offered to students. Collaboration and cooperation amongst students and staff are key to its success. The teaching of Spanish takes place in purpose built classrooms which were fully renovated recently to include the very latest technology. Lessons are lively and communicative. Teachers are able to use a significant amount of the target language in lessons. Students are very responsive and open to using foreign languages and they also benefit from conversing regularly with a Spanish foreign language assistant.. Although the Spanish department operates as a small team, it does so in line with other Modern Foreign Languages in the school, under the direction of the Head of MFL. Students tend to opt for a language in Primary and carry on with the language into Secondary, with options to take IGCSE and IBDP examinations.
