The school offers the highest quality international educational programme that develops students to be ambitious in their goals, innovative in their thought, critical in their approach and confident in their presentation. Students will be prepared to identify and access the best possible opportunities both in Turkey and abroad and act in an appropriate responsible manner.
The role: The primary phase follows the Cambridge International Curriculum which is closely aligned to the English National Curriculum. As a primary class teacher you will deliver quality teaching and learning opportunities to pupils in your class and act as a role model for those within the school. Class sizes are small -max of 15 pupils. Currently, the school operates a Covid timetable so students are in classes no bigger than 8. There are specialist staff employed at the primary campus who deliver lessons in PE, Art, ICT, French, Spanish and music. This allows the class teacher to focus on the core and social sciences.
The school currently has 10 classes and is housed in a period building overlooking the Bosphorus. Currently, the primary, middle and high school are in separate locations in Istanbul but there are plans to unite the current sites to a brand new purpose built school in a couple of years.
What's in it for you?
A chance to live and work in a country where East meet West. The cost of living in Turkey is attractive and there is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a culture and save money.
