The British International School Ukraine
TEACHER OF MATHEMATICS
A BISU teacher must be dedicated to the well-being of the pupils in his/her care, able to think creatively, have a ‘team-first’ attitude and a commitment to the school’s ethos and values. He/she is willing to take risks to develop best practice and accept that challenge is an integral part of the teaching profession.
This is an exciting time for both Ukraine and our school and the best teachers will thrive in this environment.
We have recently celebrated our 22nd year and grown to 4 campuses with over 700 students from Nursery to Year 13. The international curriculum is inquiry based and mirrors the EYFS and National Curriculum in England with Cambridge IGCSE and IBDP in Secondary. As a British international school, we are a proud member of COBIS and the Black Sea Schools Group.
The successful candidate will take up his/her post on 13th August 2020.
This is a school for teachers ready to accept the challenge of joining us on our journey to being truly great; those wanting to try new things and who see teaching as a life choice and not simply a job.
We require our teachers to have:
Degree and QTS (or equivalent)
Experience of IGCSE or GCSE
A commitment to a constructivist approach to learning
A willingness to contribute to the life of our school as an active team member
A genuine interest in promoting and providing quality learning and teaching
A desire to continue to develop personally and professionally
UK training or experience of working in a British International school is a very strong advantage
IBDP experience is an advantage however, training can be provided if this is a career aspiration
Personal qualities we are looking for in teachers to complement our team:
• Dedication to creating a collaborative environment
• Highly rational
• Willing to embrace the evolution in educational design
• Mental agility
