Successful candidates will become members of the Primary team, within a new and innovative educational hub in the heart of Dubai. At Citizens School, we call all of our teachers Mentors because we believe in focusing on learning rather than teaching.
Art Mentors work in conjunction with the Head of Primary to ensure that the curriculum is broad, sequential and relevant, taking account of all learners in their care. Mentors will place the highest importance on the well-being of all students, ensuring excellent levels of pastoral support and encouragement of every child.
Mentors will model the values of Citizens School and create a culture where all members of the community learn, thrive and collaborate, ensuring all individuals are empowered and nurtured, as Citizens School becomes known as a centre of excellence.
If you would like to join and believe you can contribute to a truly different type of school, with a bespoke curriculum, ethos, supportive SLT and a strong school community, we would like to hear from you.
