Head of Secondary School Tunis Not suitable for newly qualified teachers (NQT)
This is a unique opportunity to continue the development of BIST at Secondary level, and to reinforce its position as the only COBIS accredited and UK inspected school in Tunisia. Established in 2012, BIST has the vocation to provide international schooling following the UK curriculum and UK best educational practices to meet a demand for a quality alternative, in English, to the Tunisian national education system.
With passion, courage, resilience and a pioneering spirit, we have been able to secure a growing corpus of parents that we were capable of offering a genuinely British school experience, from Early Years to A-level. BIST Secondary opened its doors, on a separate site, in September 2016, witnessing steady growth with a first Year 13 cohort this September 2021.
It is a warm, welcoming and student-centred school, currently with a maximum capacity of 175 students, predominantly Tunisian but with other internationals, and a... dedicated team of around 20 teachers and teaching assistants. The School is located near the northern suburbs of Tunis, which constitute a very pleasant residential environment, including the little seaside town of La Marsa, where most staff and many expatriates choose to live.
We are looking for an upstanding and inspirational leader, capable of taking the School to its next level, and of managing the multiple challenges any growing school faces. If you have the professional qualifications, skills and experience, and are keen to develop these further in our School, we would be delighted to receive your application. To apply, please see attached documents for contact details.
