Are you seeking a challenge and want to make a difference in an island community? Then apply for a teaching post on St. Helena Island.

Enjoying unique lifestyle opportunities, St Helena Island is a self-governing overseas territory of the United Kingdom. Although better placed to develop economically and socially as a result of opening our international airport in 2017, we are not at the stage of self-sufficiency and therefore remain dependent on UK government aid. There are four schools on the island; one secondary and three primaries. The curriculum broadly models the English education system.

You will join a team of dedicated teachers to promote and improve standards in Science (Biology/Chemistry/Physics) at Prince Andrew Secondary School. You must plan, prepare and deliver schemes of work for key stages 3, 4 and 5 and ensure good assessment practices which includes reporting and feedback to students and parents, monitoring and assessing and tracking student performance. You will work with local colleagues sharing your specialist subject knowledge to support their learning and development.

Holding a UK teaching qualification and QTS, you have attained degree level in a relevant subject area. You will have demonstrable experience of successfully teaching Science (Biology/Chemistry/Physics) across keystages 3, 4 and 5 to GCSE and A level.   You have worked overseas, preferably in a developing economy, and have a record of your CPD.

In addition, you must demonstrate our core values of fairness, integrity and teamwork and use your diverse expertise and experiences to ensure your time on the Island has the broadest benefit to St Helena.  As an officer funded through the Technical Co-Operation Programme you will be expected to share your knowledge and skills beyond the workplace contributing to workforce, community and capacity development in St Helena.
