Founded in partnership with Sobha, North London Collegiate School Dubai offers an academically ambitious education in keeping with the aspirational ethos of NLCS (UK). The School provides the same impressive range of extra-curricular activities for which NLCS (UK) and NLCS Jeju are well known, and to foster well-rounded individuals who are capable of becoming leaders.
NLCS Dubai aims to be the top-performing IB World School in the UAE, supporting the aspirations and abilities of all students; as a result, they and their families will choose to stay in Dubai throughout their Primary and Secondary schooling.
This selective, co-educational day school, caters for students aged 3 – 18. The School is located within the prestigious Sobha Hartland Development, close to the Burj Khalifa and ‘Downtown’ area of Dubai and boasts state-of-the-art facilities.
NLCS Dubai is looking for a dynamic, well-qualified and committed Assistant Principal – Head of Sixth Form with an outstanding track record of examination success and leadership. The appointee will lead and manage the teams of Sixth Form tutors, who have day to day responsibility for the welfare and discipline of students in the Diploma Programme.
The successful candidate will have an international outlook and an appreciation of the richness that a diversity of cultures brings to a school. They will have considerable experience in teaching all secondary age groups, with a passion for their subject. They will be educated to degree level or above and may also have other relevant professional qualifications.
Previous experience of the IB Middle Years and/or the IB Diploma are an advantage; of prime importance is an ability to motivate and inspire students and lead staff in order to ensure that academic provision is consistently of the highest standard.
The appointee will ensure that all members of the department offer support to the learning and pastoral needs of individual students, in keeping with the School’s aims and values.
All members of staff are also expected to be involved in pastoral care within the School community, usually in the role of form tutor or co-tutor, and also to contribute to the extra-curricular life of the School.
