WHAT WE OFFER

MWIS is a leader in curriculum delivery, offering programming in English and Arabic at all grades as well as a new French program in KG and Grade 1. In future years, students will be able to study the Alberta (Canada) curriculum at all grades in either English or French. Arabic is a significant language program for students in all programs.

With full Alberta accreditation, students earn an Alberta High School Diploma identical to the one being earned by students studying in Alberta or other accredited international schools. The school is very proud of this accreditation as it is only attained through high performance in terms of program delivery and requires the school to maintain teaching staff with Alberta certification. As a result the majority of teachers are Canadian trained with others coming from jurisdictions meeting Canadian teaching standards.

We offer an attractive remuneration package including medical cover, flights, furnished accommodation, and children's tuition fee discounts. MWIS focus includes both students and staff and so we place a special importance on professional development, coaching, and training. Successful candidates will have access to a wide network of professionals and opportunities to lead and contribute to training others as well as developing themselves.

MWIS is keen to hear from like-minded, forward-thinking school leaders who would welcome the challenge and opportunities that we have to offer.

This job description is not all-inclusive. MWIS reserves the right to amend this job description at any time. We are an equal opportunity employer, committed to a diverse and inclusive work environment.
