From September 2024

At Beau Soleil, we believe it’s what you do that counts. This philosophy holds true in all that we do as staff and for our students. We are a community that believes in the power of action, engagement and participation, inside and outside of the classroom.
Our unique holistic education is built around four core values: Respect, Responsibility, Ambition and Determination, which provide a framework to community life for our international student body. Our students come from over fifty different countries, with diverse academic backgrounds and a wide range of future aspirations.
With curricular programmes in both English and French, students graduate with an IB or Advanced Studies Diploma. Within this framework, small class sizes allow for a flexible programme and staff are encouraged and supported to bring new ideas to all that they do.

Our location in the heart of Villars-sur-Ollon, offers an enviable lifestyle with access to skiing in the winter months and a multitude of outdoor and sporting activities throughout the year. Montreux, Lausanne, and Geneva are all within easy reach for cultural adventures and inspiration.
The Beau Soleil campus is an inspiring place to work with facilities that are second to none. Our ongoing campus development and maintenance programme ensures that our students and staff thrive in an environment of which they can be rightly proud.

French lies at the heart of a Beau Soleil education. Whether it is exploring classic texts, contemporary literature, or studying contemporary media texts in IBDP Language and Literature lessons, the quality of our French provision defines our students’ ability to enjoy learning and successfully navigate the curricular programmes they follow.
Playing a key role within the Faculty of Languages and student support, you will be keen to join a team dedicated to helping students achieve and grow both emotionally and intellectually. You will enjoy working with a range of abilities, ages, and nationalities, and of course, have an infectious love of language and literature. This part-time position is perfect for teachers who are passionate about their subject, enjoy engaging with young people, are keen to share ideas, learn from others, and set the highest expectations for themselves and their classes.

As a qualified teacher, you will be familiar with the IBDP curriculum and confident working with students from diverse backgrounds. You will be an excellent communicator and confident with technology, someone who gets on well with colleagues, students, and parents.
Additionally, you should be well-organised, have a good sense of humour, and want to participate fully in the classroom. Our comprehensive learning programme includes Saturday morning academics and exciting challenges such as climbing 4000m peaks and night-time ski racing.
