We are looking for a dynamic, dedicated, and enthusiastic Geography and Humanities teacher for our Secondary school.  Applications are particularly welcome from candidates with international experience, all applicants must have a strong interest in inquiry-based learning and promoting international-mindedness. There is also a possible Head of Department position for the right candidate. 

Fleming College is a well-established private international school with 600 students from ages 2 to 18. Almost all the students are Peruvian as are the majority of the teachers.  

English is the official language of instruction at the school, though many subjects are taught in Spanish owing to a lack of suitably experienced local teachers who can teach in English. For this reason, the school is looking to recruit from further afield and the salaries offered will be more than normal local salaries.  

Trujillo is located 500 km north of Lima and offers an excellent provincial lifestyle just 50 minutes flight from the capital.  Known as the city of eternal spring, the climate is warm and sunny the whole year round, a welcome contrast to the grey skies of Lima. Surfing and archaeological sites are the main tourist attractions whilst there is also easy access to the mountains (approximately one and a half hours by road). As Peru’s third city, Trujillo’s economy has surged forward in recent years and the city now has a population approaching one million.  However, it still retains its colonial charm and traffic is relatively light, with most journeys across the city taking only 10 or 15 minutes at most. There are pleasant and quiet residential neighborhoods within walking distance of the school.
