Details of Position

Teachers and Senior Teachers, British Council Bahrain

The British Council Bahrain is recruiting 3 full-time teachers and 1 Senior Teacher Young Learner. Bahrain offers a comfortable lifestyle and a competitive package in one of the more liberal countries in the Middle East.

The senior teacher for young learner programmes provides professional leadership to the local team. The role includes the ability to motivate, influence, and shape individuals in order to assure continuous programme development and improvement. The manager is part of, and accountable to, the academic management team and works under the general supervision of Head of Teaching and Learning Bahrain. He/ She will maintain a co-operative relationship with the wider management team, and other personnel in key departments including Exams, Marketing and Customer Services. External stakeholders including parents will also require regular contact. Outside Bahrain the ST YL would be expected to work closely with the Regional YL Business Development Manager and Regional YL Product Development Manager as a key role in the implementation of change and business growth initiatives. The variety and level of responsibilities within this role makes this a very good post for onward promotion opportunities.

The Bahrain teaching team is proud of our commitment to teacher development and we work hard to ensure our teachers achieve their full potential. We are one of the largest Young Learner centres in the entire MENA region and all teachers are timetabled to teach the majority of their classes to YLs (6-14-year-olds) or Upper Secondary students (15-17-year-olds). In addition, they will ordinarily teach 1 or 2 Adult courses per week. We are also teaching Early Years classes (3-5-year-olds) and an interest in this area of teaching would be desirable.

All of our current teachers have completed or will be expected to complete a Young Learner Extension Certificate, e.g. TYLEC. We also fund up to 3 DELTA applications per year in Bahrain so for those looking to advance their professional qualifications, Bahrain is the place to be.

As one of the largest young learner centres in the region, we offer excellent development opportunities for experienced and new young learner teachers. For the more experienced teacher, we offer opportunities to mentor, develop; train and line manage less experienced teachers. There is also support to undertake specialised courses, attend and present at regional and global conferences and the potential to become a TYLEC trainer. Less experienced teachers will have the opportunity to gain valuable training from their more experienced peers and undertake training courses in young learner and other specialisations, for example assessment, special educational needs, teaching reading using phonics, etc.

Although our classes are predominantly young learners, we also run a range of Adult and Corporate courses, and we are looking to expand and develop these, therefore there are significant opportunities to develop a range of experience in teaching and course development for adults and English for Specific Purposes.

Start date: Jan 2019
Contract duration: 2 years

Internal candidates please remember to include the full version of your most recent end-of-year-record of performance/evaluation and confirm when the system prompts you that you have discussed the application with both your line and centre manager. Please do not send any applications via email as they will not be considered.

The closing date for applications is 28th November 2018. Enquiries about the post can be sent to the MENA Regional Teacher Recruitment team based in Dubai.
