Teacher of English required for September 2019
Are you an inspirational teacher looking for an amazing opportunity in a highly successful and prestigious school? The College Alpin Beau Soleil is looking for an experienced and qualified teacher of English to join our team. We welcome applications from exceptional, self-motivated and reflective professionals with the right blend of energy and experience, and a passion for teaching that embraces change and innovation. The ability to teach Drama or EAL as a second subject would be an advantage.
English lies at the heart of a Beau Soleil education. Whether it is exploring classic texts and Big Ideas in our IMYC classes, or studying text messaging and taboo in IBDP Language and Literature lessons, the quality of our English provision defines our students’ ability to enjoy learning and successfully navigate the curricular programmes they follow. As the school grows, we are looking to build our English team and enhance it by recruiting another fantastic teacher, ideally with experience in delivering Drama or EAL. Playing a key role within the Faculty of English and student support, you will be keen to join a team which is centred on helping students to achieve and grow emotionally as well as intellectually. You will enjoy working with a range of abilities, ages and nationalities, and of course, have an infectious love of language and literature.
Amongst other things, you’ll be well organised, have a good sense of humour and will want to participate fully in the extra-curricular aspects of school life including the boarding provision as well as the classroom. Ideally, you will already have a basic level of French language and be keen to develop your language skills.
In addition to being highly successful in its own right, the College Alpin Beau Soleil is a member of the Nord Anglia Education family of premium international schools. This means you’ll be joining an international team in which thoughts and ideas are shared around the globe as we strive to make our schools the very best in the world. You will have the security and opportunities that come from being part of a high quality global organisation dedicated to education and professional development.
In return for your passion to deliver the highest quality all-round boarding education you will enjoy a competitive salary, and places in the school for your children. You will also have the opportunity to live in and work in the stunningly beautiful Swiss Alpine ski resort of Villars sur Ollon.
Here at the College Alpin Beau Soleil, we are a close knit team who are proud of our school and boarding community. We educate 250 young people from nearly 60 countries, preparing them for futures as impactful global citizens. If you’d like to be a part of our on-going success, please get in touch; we’d love to hear from you.
