We currently have 58 international teaching staff, from 6 continents (strangely enough we don't have a staff member from Antarctica!). They are a great group, bringing with them extensive experience and a commitment to high academic standards, as well as making our school a fun place to be for both students and colleagues.
To be employed at KISU we require teachers to hold a degree from an internationally recognised university, a full teaching license and be able to provide evidence of no criminal record (eg enhanced CRB check, Interpol certificate or similar).
Working in Uganda can be challenging and if you are after an easy life where everything works with slick efficiency, then you are probably best to stay in countries like the UK and USA. However, if you relish a challenge, want to work with some of the nicest students you are ever likely to find and want to experience living and working in 'the pearl of Africa' then please consider us.
Initial contracts are for 2 years and then renewed annually by mutual agreement.
Start date: August 2013
This post is suited to a well qualified and experienced teacher of French, who has experience of teaching the subject within the English National Curriculum
We teach French throughout the school from Y2 right up to our oldest students who study the IB Diploma Programme in Years 12 and 13.
We are looking for someone with a passion for the language, who relishes the opportunity to work with students across all age ranges, particularly students in the Primary school. KISU has a strong French department and they cater for students who range in ability from beginners to native French speakers. Our parents are supportive and enthusiastic about French and the language is compulsory for the majority of our students.
We are working hard to develop a real team of teachers and a willingness to be a part of that team is very important. It is expected that the teacher employed will be willing to run clubs and help in school-wide undertakings; being a real member of our community.
