Every year, there are countless success stories that rise from the bricks and mortar of Collegiate Schools, and each team member is challenged to be the positive difference in a young person's life.
Collegiate Schools have highly collaborative teams comprising top teachers from around the world who provide each child with a superior education and are focused on continuous student growth.
Just as we expect every child to grow year to year, we expect the same from our teachers.
Our teachers do more than provide an excellent education - they lead, inspire and excite. They have a passion for teaching and for our mission, and they are able to relate to students in a loving, supportive manner while embracing expert techniques in personalized education and focusing their craft on developing critical-thinking skills.
Recruiting, training, supporting, holding accountable and retaining exceptional faculty is a top priority at all Collegiate Schools, because the best teachers provide the best education for our students. Our teachers:
With over 100s of teachers in our family, globally, we know what great teaching and great teachers look like. We use our global network to look for the world's best teachers who believe in our mission and academic philosophy. We look for sound experience, proven track record, high-energy personality, strong commitment to students and families, ability to be a team player and confidence in the classroom. We want teachers who can analyze student learning styles, apply best-practice teaching techniques, such as differentiation, and integrate technology into the classroom.
Our teachers never stand still. They - like their students - are always learning. Our teachers are dedicated to getting better every year. To help our teachers become even better at their profession, Collegiate Schools provides intensive professional training and opportunities to share best practices with some of the world's finest educators. We have developed a robust information-sharing network so that teachers can seamlessly connect with their colleagues worldwide and we can conduct formal training simultaneously in multiple schools around the world.
Collegiate Schools ensure teachers have adequate resources to do an exceptional job. All of our schools have small classroom sizes so that teachers can spend one-on-one time with each of their students. Our classrooms are purposely built to provide an environment conducive to differentiated instruction. Our schools have libraries that serve as learning centres, technology that supports education and facilities for fine art and athletics education.
Our schools are singularly focused on growing our students both academically and socially. Teachers are the primary owners of such growth. We measure academic growth through classroom observation and evaluation, as well as student growth relative to children of the same ability. The entire school provides feedback to each teacher on the social and personal growth of our students. Our teachers are held accountable for understanding each student and ensuring they are all growing.
Teachers are the cornerstone of Collegiate Schools, and their engagement and satisfaction is a priority for all our schools. Retaining and motivating great teachers is critically important to our mission and vision, so we provide our teachers with:
Collegiate Schools offer an academically demanding college-preparatory program to a multicultural group of students, aged 3-19 years. We therefore seek experienced teaching faculty who have the ability to respond effectively to the needs of our students in a situation where preparation for higher education is as important as K-12 education.

Based on the needs of the school, contracts may be offered and signed during the course of the academic year for up to six months less or more than the usual three-year duration, such that the end-date of the contract is 31st May.

Busy and tired are words you will often hear! At the same time, you will have the chance to develop interests, old and new, with enthusiastic staff and students.
Health and personal characteristics
