TEACHING VACANCIES AT DULWICH COLLEGE (SINGAPORE)

Enthusiastic and adaptable classroom practitioners are required for an August 2023 start.

Students come first is our guiding pillar. The right candidates will be highly committed team players with the drive, energy and passion to help develop this forward-looking school. They will be internationally minded and excited to work with a culturally diverse range of colleagues and children. Applicants must be willing to lead by example and play a full part in the College’s pastoral care and extra-curricular programme.

Junior School teachers have high expectations of themselves and learners. They are reflective and strive for continual improvement. They value knowing each child as an individual and create a safe space for learning. They believe in personalising learning and that all children have the right to make progress from their individual starting points; teachers identify the needs of children and provide support and challenge as appropriate.

Our teachers understand the importance of a solid platform of core skills and content, and see this as a springboard to teach broader concepts, through an inquiry approach to learning. To support this every student has access to a device. Our curriculum and timetable value a breadth of disciplines that includes traditionally academic subjects as well as STEM, sports, and visual and performance arts. Teachers are supported to develop areas of expertise within this model.

Above all, our teachers strive to develop a love for learning in every child.
 

Safeguarding

Our College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in our care. We follow safe recruitment practices and appointments are subject to vetting including reference checks, and identity and criminal record checks.

We build upon the excellent foundations laid in DUCKS, and develop a depth of academic knowledge, as well as the life skills and mindset needed, to prepare students for the best possible success in our Senior School.
