"To inspire, challenge and nurture for excellence"
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 (KS3) is modelled on the English National Curriculum, after which students then study their choice of subjects at (I)GCSE and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme 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 small number of students within each year group of the Secondary School who have EAL support enables a personalised programme of development to be tailored to the individual and their needs. This very much depends on the needs of each student: some have additional support during curriculum time, whereas others have periodic intervention to boost their language skills. For some students, studying English as a 2nd Language at GCSE (CIE) is there pathway in KS4, as is the option of the English Language B course (SL/HL) at IB in the Sixth Form. 
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate:
  • A track record of exceptional EAL teaching
  • Capable of teaching across the Key Stages
  • Outstanding subject knowledge
  • Enthusiasm and motivation for exemplary teaching and learning
In return, the successful candidate can expect:
  • A comprehensive Induction Programme
  • Opportunities to work in a dynamic and supportive faculty with outstanding facilities
  • A positive student body who love learning
  • A strong Continuing Professional Learning programme to develop you as an outstanding teacher
  • A supportive Senior Leadership Team
If you are lively, forward thinking and able to motivate young people to reach their academic targets and beyond, then we would be delighted to receive your application to join our team.
