TEACHER OF CHEMISTRY
We are delighted that you are interested in furthering your teaching career at the British School Jakarta (BSJ). The Secondary School currently has over 600 students in Years 7-11, and over 200 students in our Sixth Form. Our reputation is to provide academic excellence via a balanced international curriculum while enabling our students to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners.
Our curriculum in the lower years (Years 7, 8 and 9) is the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP), after which students then study their choice of subjects at (I)GCSE and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) or International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IB CP) in our Sixth Form. Our students annually achieve results well above UK and global averages, and are highly successful in their applications to leading universities in the UK, USA, Canada and Asia. Students at BSJ are exceptionally active in exploring and developing their individual passions and talents. We have an expansive programme of opportunities that encompass: sports, drama, music, art, technology, leadership, charity and community service.
The Science faculty comprises of fourteen full-time teachers, four technicians and one support member of staff. The faculty is well-resourced with a wide range of software/hardware and textbooks, and based in its own block of nine multi-functional labs. Academic results throughout the school in all Science subjects are excellent. After following the IB MYP for three years, at the start of Year 10, students opt to either study three separate Sciences (Edexcel, 9-1), or the Double Award (Edexcel, 9-1) course. Within the IB curriculum, the Science faculty offer: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Environmental Systems and Societies, and Sports Science.
Applications are invited from experienced and dynamic teachers who hold a relevant degree and work experience with experience and a clear understanding of teaching at IB MYP, I/GCSE and IB DP level.

Most full-time teachers are also form tutors.
