from January to July 2022

Founded in 2015, Le Régent International School is a rapidly growing boarding and day school with an international academic programme. Just over 200 students from Switzerland and around the world are educated in a modern campus in the heart of the Valais Alps in Crans-Montana.

Le Régent is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and inspiring part-time English teacher from January 2022. Although the post is part-time (probably 40%) and theoretically temporary, it may well develop into more for the right candidate, especially one able to offer a second teaching subject.

Duties will principally involve teaching grade 8 and 9 (UK years 9 and 10) “mainstream” English (rather than EAL), preparing students for IGCSEs and ultimately the IB diploma.

On- or off-campus accommodation may be available.

PERSON SPECIFICATION

  • a first-language speaker of English with a good honours degree in English, probably from an English-speaking university
  • a teaching qualification (PGCE or equivalent)
  • relevant experience, ideally in an international setting, with children for whom English may or may not not be their first language
  • the ability to teach English to KS3 and KS4 in Language and Literature, preferably with experience of the IGCSE syllabus and examinations
  • Knowledge and experience of the IB English A Language and Literature syllabus
  • Excellent interpersonal communication skills in order to work closely with staff, students and parents
  • Knowledge and skills to integrate ICT within the English curriculum where appropriate
  • a creative and enthusiastic approach both inside and outside the classroom with a willingness to play a full part in the day and boarding life of the College.

WORK PERMITS
Obtaining work permits for non-EU candidates can be a difficult procedure and we may be obliged to appoint a candidate with an EU passport or a Swiss work permit.
