We have an exciting opportunity available for an enthusiastic Secondary Art Teacher to work at a highly reputable British International School in Qatar starting in August 2022.
Qatar International School has a long and illustrious history, tracing its roots back well over 40 years, and enjoys working with extremely supportive parents and wonderfully enthusiastic and highly motivated students. A full 3-18 school, it follows the National Curriculum for England and Wales up to GCSE at Key Stage 4 and A Level at Key Stage 5. It is now one of the largest British International Schools in the country, and was judged to be outstanding in every area assessed in its most recent inspection.
The school recognises that its teaching staff are its most precious resource and so always strive to look after staff both professionally and personally.
Qatar offers a welcoming, vibrant and cosmopolitan lifestyle that is equally suited to both young and older members of the profession alike. Proud of its hospitality and rich Arabic history, Doha is a very modern city of contrasts ranging from the fascinating Souq Waqif and Museum of Islamic Art to the towering skyscrapers of downtown West Bay and the ultramodern shopping malls that are liberally scattered across the capital city.
