The English College, Dubai, seeks a positive, reflective and inspiring Head of Learning for August 2022. The Head of Learning will be responsible for the quality of teaching and learning in all classrooms across the school – Primary and Secondary- and for the professional learning of our teaching staff.

The Head of Learning will be involved in shaping the future academic life of the School, always striving for high standards whilst understanding the impact teaching, learning and achievement have on an individual’s academic success, personal development and well-being. The successful candidate will be an integral member of the Whole School Leadership Team, reporting directly to the Principal, and will be an inspirational practitioner and leader who is able to enthuse others to be creative and innovative in their teaching. They will have a proven track record of driving change and having impact on teaching and learning.

The successful candidate will have a growth mindset and high expectations of all staff and students.
