PE Teacher Dubai

Successful candidates will become members of the PE team, within an innovative educational hub in the heart of Dubai. At Citizens School, we call all of our teachers Mentors because we believe in focusing on learning rather than teaching.

PE Mentors work in conjunction with the Head of PE and Activities to ensure that the PE curriculum is broad, sequential and relevant, taking account of all learners in their care. PE Mentors will place the highest importance on the well-being of all learners, ensuring excellent levels of pastoral support and encouragement of every child. 

Previous experience of playing or competing in Netball or swimming would be desirable. As a school we are looking for an enthusiastic, forward-thinking individual who would be willing and able to drive forward areas in the department, committed to extra-curricular activities, clubs and squad development.

The facilities are state of the art, with a 6-lane 25m semi-Olympic pool, training pool, full-size floodlit 4G astroturf and an indoor hall with space for 6 badminton courts and 2 adjacent netball courts. You will have the resources needed to teach an in-depth curriculum and add immense value to your profession as well as our learners. Professional Development opportunities will be made available also alongside the staff well-being initiatives run by the school.

Mentors will model the values of Citizens School and create a culture where all members of the community learn, thrive and collaborate, ensuring all individuals are empowered and nurtured, as Citizens School becomes known as a centre of excellence.
