An independent British curriculum school of good standing located in the popular expatriate country of Kuwait is seeking experienced upper primary teachers for the next academic year. The right applicant should be able to demonstrate an experienced ability to manage a more local teaching environment but at the same time embrace a multi-national and multi-cultural environment with the appropriate empathy and differentiated delivery skills.

Applicants are preferred to have experience with a background of delivering the National Curriculum of England and Wales; they need to be a qualified teacher with QTS status. Applicants are required to research the potential of working in a Gulf state of Kuwait to see if the opportunity synergises with their own professional and personal aspirations before they submit their CV. The school is a member of the British Schools of the Middle East and teachers enjoy all the professional benefits that such a reputable international establishment offers.

Primary teachers must have a first degree in Primary Education or a first degree in English literature and a teaching certificate.

The employment package is very competitive boasting a tax free salary starting from KWD980 per month, free furnished single occupancy accommodation, local medical insurance, annual flights and an end of service gratuity. The saving potential is high and opportunities for more local foreign travel are as exciting as they are varied.
