An independent British curriculum school of good standing located in the popular expatriate country of Kuwait is seeking an experienced secondary teacher of Art for the next academic year.This role would suit a teacher who can offer the delivery of the subject from Key Stage 2 to 4. Whilst an NQT would be considered, there would be a preference for someone with 2 – 4+ years of experience. Due to ministerial regulations they should have a first degree in their teaching subject with a matching post graduate qualifcation or a BEd of the same subject. Teachers should be aware that the majority of students are speakers of English as a second language, a good proportion of whom hail from Kuwait itself; confident abilities to differentiate delivery and culturally connect are a must.

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. The school runs a successful NQT programme in partnership with Buckinghamshire Learning Trust, which allows NQTs to gain QTS.

The employment package is very competitive boasting a tax free salary starting from KD980 per month (that's GBP25000 per year 60% to 80% of which can be saved), 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 (more exotic places being closer like Africa, the Indian Ocean and Asia) are as exciting as they are varied.
