About the position:

Professional qualities and experience:
We seek a fully-certified, experienced Head of Primary Science and
STEAM to join our rapidly expanding international school in Baku,
Azerbaijan.

This an opportunity to join a great team and make a genuine difference,
educating the upcoming elite of a young country with a promising future.
The post is suited to a capable and self-motivated professional who
enjoys working in a cross-cultural environment.

The successful applicant will be a highly-capable, modern practitioner
with a passion for 'hands on’ teaching of science and STEAM investigations and projects.

 

Core duties in this role include:

  • Delivering lessons of an exemplar standard.
  • Enhancing the curriculum, planning, teaching and assessment and resourcing of Cambridge Primary Science and STEAM.
  • Quality assuring the teaching of Cambridge Primary Science and STEAM.
  • Developing robust systems for assessment, data gathering and reporting related to Cambridge Primary Science and STEAM.

The position will suit a committed, enthusiastic teaching professional
possessing the correct blend of moral purpose, teaching and
interpersonal and intercultural communication skills.

1 At the school’s current stage of development we feel that the Preschool and Primary school are ready for expatriate leaders but that it is probably not yet the right time to induct expatriates’ dependent children into the Secondary school.

 

About MTK
MTK school is located in Baku, Azerbaijan and moved to a state-of-the-art
campus in the heart of the country’s capital in August 2018. A prestigious
local private school educating the children of the country’s business elite,
MTK is part-way through a transition to becoming a bilingual, international-style school that offers a blended English and Azerbaijani-
instruction curriculum.

The school is comprised of a bilingual Preschool for ages 2-6, a bilingual
Primary School for ages 6-10 (Grades 1-4) and a three stream Secondary
school for ages 10-18 (Grades 5-12), which incorporates an international
stream (offering Cambridge IGCSE and AS/A-Levels) and two local
curriculum streams where the language of instruction is Azerbaijani and
Russian respectively. The pupil roll is around 600 in total.

 

The Primary School
The Primary School is situated in a state-of-the-art building with plenty
of natural light, interactive whiteboards in every class, spacious
corridors, a fully-stocked library and specialist teaching spaces for ICT,
Art and Music; there are Secondary science labs but Primary Science and
STEAM are taught in the children’s usual classrooms.

The Primary curriculum is delivered primarily in two languages,
determined by the student’s choice of educational stream. Students
learning in Stream A receive a spine of English-instruction international
subjects (English, Mathematics, Science and STEAM, Topic Work, Art, PE
etc.) delivered in English, complimented by aspects of the host-country
curriculum delivered in the Azerbaijani language. Stream B classes
receive the same but with their host-country curriculum content
delivered in the Russian language.

The transformation of the Primary School began in earnest in August
2018 and a great deal of positive progress has been made in terms of
staff development, improved planning and assessment of teaching, improved resourcing, creating enabling learning environments and
adapting the parent body to more child-centred expectations.

The successful applicant will work in close cooperation with a
predominantly local staff team and three other fully-certified expatriate
Primary teachers.

MTK employs an expatriate staff comprised of nine fully-certified
teachers across the Preschool, Primary School and Secondary School and
an expatriate Executive Principal who is a UK national.

 

Essential Requirements:

  • Qualified Teacher Status achieved in one of the following countries: United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa or the USA.
  • Experience of teaching the Primary curriculum using the above national curricula (or international equivalent).
  • A particular flair and passion for teaching Primary Science and STEAM, using a fun and practical approach.
  • A passion for teaching EAL/ESL learners in a mixed ability environment.
  • A positive work ethic and a high level of self-motivation; the willingness to act as a role-model and mentor, to students and colleagues.
  • Cultural sensitivity and intercultural communication competence; the ability to relate positively to colleagues who were raised in a distinctly different culture.
  • Perseverance and a willingness to find complex practical solutions to everyday problems; patience, emotional stability and a positive outlook.
  • A commitment to being an excellent ambassador for our school within the Baku community.

 

Also desirable would be:

  • Experience of teaching the Cambridge Primary Science Curriculum.
  • Experience of leading appraisal and/or staff training; experience of school management and/or subject leadership.
  • Specific EAL / ESL experience or qualifications.
  • Experience of working in an international setting within a team that has a high proportion of host-country nationals.
  • Experience of living and working in the post-Soviet space.
  • Proficiency in Azerbaijani, Russian or Turkish language.
