Are you an experienced and well qualified Elementary/Primary teacher who is looking to develop skills and diversify their knowledge in an international setting? Are you a committed Christian who would relish the chance to integrate your faith into your professional practice? Are you interested in living and working in a country so beautiful Winston Churchill declared it ‘the pearl of Africa?’ If so, then Heritage International School would love to hear from you.
We are looking for internationally qualified Elementary Teachers for the next academic year, starting August 2021. The Elementary curriculum at Heritage is based on the International Primary Curriculum, where students are taught sciences and humanities through a range of hands-on practical learning journeys which foster development in teamwork, critical thinking and problem-solving. This is alongside a stand-alone US based English programme and Singapore Maths. We are looking for a passionate and dedicated professional who is able to inspire students of all abilities and has a natural enthusiasm or ability to deliver creative and innovative lessons. We would welcome applicants who have a special interest in STEM or performing arts. We expect our teachers to be reflective practitioners who can evaluate their own practice and develop the learning in their classroom. We are also interested in teachers who have experience of using dynamic and creative ways to biblically integrate the curriculum.
Heritage International School is an all-age Christian international school located in the suburbs of Kampala, Uganda. It opened in 1994 to support children of ex-pat missionaries but has since expanded to welcome those of all faiths and none, whilst still remaining true to its core Christian values. We have over 40 nationalities represented and are currently moving towards our full capacity of 550 students.
We offer a generous benefits package to our international staff. In addition to a monthly salary you will be awarded with return flights per year of contract, school housing or alternatively a monetary housing allowance, two bursaries for staff children and medical insurance.
