Working at Stonehill
There is much you can learn from teaching. Even more you can teach from learning
Aligned with the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection, we hold ourselves to a high standard of effective recruiting practices with specific attention to child protection.
Teachers have to make education a lifelong journey of discovery and achievement for themselves, before they can inspire the same in their students. At Stonehill, we strive to instil the love of learning in our students and our teachers. The school is committed to helping teachers embody and encourage the application of the IB Learner Profile in every situation – a set of attitudes and behaviours that the IB continuum of education fosters in every learner. In this respect, among many others, an IB teacher is a different kind of educator. We invest significantly in teacher training, enabling our faculty to participate in workshops and conferences with internal and external IB trainers. This emphasis on professional development results in our ability to bring the best of an IB education to not just our students, but also our teachers. Stonehill actively seeks teachers who are IB qualified trainers and IB subject examiners. A programme has been put in place to encourage and support faculty whose experience qualifies them to become subject moderators. In keeping with its aim to provide quality education for a multilingual student body, Stonehill is committed to training all teachers in the methodology of ‘ESL in the Mainstream’ to help them better understand the needs of second language learners.
Stonehill International School is located to the North of Bangalore, 5km to the West of the Airport Road. The school delivers a rigorous academic education for students aged 3 to 18 based on the IB PYP, MYP and DP Curricula. In addition to a demanding academic programme, students participate in a wide range of sporting, performing arts and co-curricular activities. The school currently caters for students from some 35+ different countries and employs a highly professional international teaching staff. Successful candidates will have knowledge and experience of teaching one or more of the above IB Curricula and a pedagogical approach that prepares children for life in the 21st century. The school does not discriminate on the basis of gender, age, religion, race or nationality. However, we rarely, if ever, employ teachers with less than two years experience in bona fide schools. All positions advertised are full-time unless indicated otherwise. Some of the positions below are for replacement. Others are for expansion.
Successful teaching candidates will be committed team players who are keen to contribute to the development of our expanding and forward-looking school. They must be willing to play a full part in the school’s pastoral care and extra-curricular programme.
