About Role

We seek an experienced and outstanding teacher to join our excellent team. At Key Stage 4 we offer the Cambridge IGCSE programme and Geography at IB diploma level. The Geography department is keen to encourage off-site learning and we run multiple field trips every year for students from Key Stage 3 to IB Diploma. Geography is a popular option choice for our students, who are highly motivated, ambitious and enjoy the challenge of a well-planned and resourced teaching program. In Key Stage 3, we offer a combined, topic-based Humanities program for students. You will be a highly effective and dynamic teacher and team-player, able to inspire our incredible students with a genuine commitment to their academic and personal development. Professional development opportunities are extensive at the college and through Dulwich College International. An ability to teach Geography programs up to post-16 level is a pre-requisite whilst experience in other Humanities subjects at Key Stage 3, IB Theory of Knowledge or IGCSE Global Perspectives will be an advantage.
