Vientiane International School welcomes applications from enthusiastic, experienced and innovative teachers who value collaborative practice and care deeply about the development of children. As an IB World School, we embed the principles of the IB throughout our school and seek to build a community of learners through all members of the VIS community. Our current teachers are committed to curriculum development and continue to enhance the programmes for students. This process is one that we believe is vital to continue and so we seek new colleagues who will be excited to join us in continuing to collaboratively refine and improve the curriculum we have in place.
As a school of around 450 students, we are able to ensure that we know our students and their families. Effective teaching requires strong partnerships between the child, the home and the school. Joining our team means that you will be able to learn from colleagues who understand the community and will support you to form your own strong partnerships with our terrific students and their families.
We seek flexibility and adaptability from our faculty because, while Vientiane is a beautiful small city in a developing country, not everything goes to plan all of the time. The capacity to enjoy different experiences and see the opportunities that living in Laos offers is an important part of being a successful teacher at VIS. Flexibility and adaptability will also be rewarded within the school with opportunities to influence and lead new initiatives as our school continues to grow.
A typical successful candidate will have at least 2 years experience in a similar school. IB experience is highly valued. Recognised teaching qualifications are essential.
We offer a competitive package that enables our faculty to live comfortably and have the ability save money. The region is a wonderful part of the world to make your home and the culture of this country and surrounding areas is rich and varied. The school will confirm vacancies in the first weeks of December and expects to be attending Search recruitment fairs in Sydney and Bangkok. We also welcome applications sent directly to the school. Please check this site for confirmed vacancies in early December. Forward your up-to-date CV and cover letter to:
