job description

Secondary English Teacher

Start Date: August 2023
Region: Middle East
School Curriculum: UK
Minimum Experience: 2 years

The School

This is a top independent co-educational English medium school in Kuwait.
The school basks in the warm Kuwaiti sun enjoying an enviable reputation as one of the finest educational establishments in the country, boasting excellent academic achievement, offering an adapted version of the UK National Curriculum to 2300 students from KG to Year 13. It is a member of the British Schools of the Middle East and the European Council of International Schools; it also has British Overseas Schools status. Despite the British flavour of teaching and learning, the school is very international and local in terms of student profile; indeed there are 50 nationalities with a strong presence of Kuwaiti and Egyptian students. New teachers need to be mindful of this and act in a manner that embraces cultural differentiation. Facilities are of an excellent standard and everything one would expect from a school of such standard.

School Requirements

  • Candidates will require a first degree in their teaching subject with a matching teaching certificate
  • 2 years of relevant experience
  • Applicants will ideally have experience teaching the UK national curriculum, and ideally to A-level for Secondary roles.

Living and Working in Kuwait

Kuwait is a welcoming location for overseas workers offering a safe and secure lifestyle and a wide range of expatriate clubs and groups. Being a smaller country with everything happening in and around the main city you will find that the western lifestyle has more of a community feel to it and it is very easy to make friends and join clubs. Packages like this also offer a big saving potential and if you like to travel Kuwait serves as a great stepping stone for other Gulf locations for the weekend and further afield in Asia and Africa for the longer school holidays.

Salary and Benefits

  • Monthly excellent tax free salary (KD 850 for teachers with two years of experience) + additional responsibility allowance for HOD role.
  • Annual flights
  • Furnished accommodation provided
  • Medical cover.
