Job Summary

We are looking for teachers who can meet the special needs of students learning English as a second or foreign language for an International school in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

We need teachers with EFL/ESL teaching experience and a familiarity with the US Common Core standards and the American K-12 curriculum.

Details of Position

Our English department needs teachers with a firm grasp of EFL/ESL educational practices and a familiarity with the US Common Core standards and the American K-12 curriculum. Since our students are not native speakers of English they face many challenges when studying an English-based curriculum. We are looking for teachers who can meet the special needs of students learning English as a second or foreign language.

The daily work schedule is from 7 am till 3:10 pm. Teachers are required to teach a minimum of 22 contact hours per week, with each lesson being no longer than 55 minutes. In addition to this, the teacher is expected to keep office hours and dedicate some time each week for exam proctoring, training, staff meetings, school events and other support activities.

As a teacher in the school, you are expected to prepare daily lesson plans and supplementary learning materials. You are mainly responsible for teaching, student assessment, grading homework and exams, and may be required to provide remedial instruction from time to time. You may be asked to provide some of your lesson plans to the head of the department, or you may be observed in the classroom by your peers or members of the school administration. We require that our teachers engage in training and professional development while they are with us, and help coach and train their colleagues when needed. We are far from perfect, but were always seeking to improve ourselves. We hope you can be part of that improvement journey. If you are looking for a challenging yet rewarding career option then this is the right job for you.

Note: Since this teaching position is in the all male section of the school, we are currently looking for male candidates only. Female teachers may inquire about available teaching jobs by sending an e-mail with a copy of their CV.
