Primary Teacher, Wrocław, Poland
Job start late August 2017
THE BRITISH INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF WROCLAW
Details for candidates
We are looking for 1 primary teacher (Upper Primary) to start working at the British International School of Wroclaw for the academic year 2017-2018 starting in late August 2017.
General info on BISC Wroclaw
The British International School, ,Wroclaw was founded in September 2006 to provide an international education for the growing expatriate community through the medium of English. We are a sister school to the British International School Cracow, founded in 1995. Our students (aged 5 - 18) come from all corners of the globe. Our small classes (Max of 16) provide a supportive, welcoming environment for both pupils and staff. We are registered with CIE, AQA and the ISA, and we are members of ECIS and COBIS. We follow the English National Curriculum in the primary school.
BISC Wroclaw is located in the leafy suburbs of Wroclaw, just fifteen minutes by public transport from the main market square. We serve mainly the international ex-pat community, but also offer a condensed Polish programme (approved by the Ministry of Education) to our Polish families, who constitute approximately 10% of the school's student roll. Our educational programme is based upon the English National Curriculum, with our Key Stage 4 students sitting IGCSE exams, and our Y13 students taking Advanced level. We are registered with two English examining boards (CIE and AQA).
At present we have approximately 150 students, aged 5 - 18, who come from many different countries worldwide. The average class size is under 16. In view of these small numbers, the overall ambience throughout the school is warm, friendly and relaxed, yet at the same time academically demanding. The level of English in some classes varies from beginner to native speaker (especially in the primary), and so all our teachers must be prepared to cope with mixed language levels. In our older classes, most students speak good English.
Details of post
The successful candidate should have training and/or experience in the British education system. He/she will be expected to teach the KS2 programme in our school. Class sizes are small, with the added benefit of having teaching assistants.
We will be looking for the following qualities in our short-listed candidates: flexibility, good classroom organisation and management, a firm but fair approach, clearly-set routines, the ability to differentiate and, above all, to challenge each pupil to the best of their abilities. In terms of personality, the candidate must be able to adapt to various situations, cope with mixed language levels, and be a cooperative member of a small professional team of teachers. We take child protection seriously and have a clear policy on this. We require a criminal record clearance from the appointed candidate, as well as three references from all short-listed candidates.
Details of salary are available upon application.
