Kuwait is one of the more popular expatriate haunts of the Middle East; it is a small country that embraces the perfect combination of local culture and western lifestyle boasting a vibrant, varied and welcoming expatriate community, not to mention plenty of glorious sunshine, lovely beaches and warm waters. Whether you frequent the local market bazaars and souks or engage in outdoor activities such as diving and snorkeling, there really is something for everyone here. It is also offers a great saving potential with tax free salaries and low cost of living.
The school is reputable and part of a group that owns several schools in and around Kuwait City and other areas, focusing mainly within the early year's sector. They are seeking a selection of experienced Primary Science Teachers with at least one year of teaching experience for a September start. At this time recruitment is not specific for any one school; placement will depend on the application and the availability of a relevant position in a particular school.
Although the school is private offering an international curriculum in English it does serve mainly local children so this is not your typical western expatriate establishment; a background of teaching in an ESL environment would be beneficial and one must be able and prepared to differentiate delivery on an English language basis, as well as being sensitive towards the local culture.
The Primary units have been developed to provide a vibrant, colourful and spacious learning environment with great resources relevant to the age range. The children are also a delight in terms of enthusiasm and eagerness; reward balances challenge in this school.
Rotational teaching is a method of delivery that the school has adopted throughout its early years units and primary schools; this means that as a primary educator you will be responsible for one subject, in this case Science, for several groups within the same grade, almost like a subject secondary teacher. This method may not appeal to everyone so if you do pursue an application with this school please be aware of this; you will not be a general classroom teacher for all subjects.
