About the position:

Professional qualities and experience:
We seek a fully certified Early Years Senior Teacher to assume a teaching
senior management team role in 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 role is exciting and varied, involving a range of duties summarised

1. Excellent teaching: around a 60% contact timetable is
anticipated in classes Nursery (3-4 years), Reception (4-5 years)
and Transition (5-6 years)
2. Mentoring: the successful applicant will have an aptitude for
building capacity in local colleagues; modelling teaching, team teaching with colleagues and a range of other mentoring, monitoring and feedback activities are integral to the role.

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.

3. Supporting school events, initiatives and policy development:
as a member of the Preschool Senior Management Team, the
successful applicant will participate in a range of other leadership
and management activities.

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


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 Preschool
The Preschool is situated in a separate, state-of-the-art building with air
conditioning, a canteen, a gym, bedrooms for nap time and en suite
bathrooms adjoining every classroom.

The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is delivered through the
medium of the ‘one adult, one language system’, a method familiar to
many bilingual families in which the mother exclusively uses her native
tongue with their children and the father uses his. There are two
streams within the Preschool and whereas Stream A classes use English
and Azerbaijani, Stream B classes use English and Russian.

The transformation of the Preschool began in earnest in August 2018
and huge 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 the
expatriate Head of Early Years Foundation Stage and a predominantly
local staff.

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 students aged 2 – 5 using one of the above national curricula (or international equivalent)
  • 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.
  • A passion for teaching EAL/ESL learners in a mixed ability environment.
  • 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 UK Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
  • Experience of leading appraisal and/or staff training; experience of school management.
  • 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.
