Our school is a not-for-profit foundation whose mission is to provide the local and international communities with a high-quality international education. Each student is welcomed to the school with respect for their personal and cultural identity and is offered an education that allows them to develop their abilities to their highest potential.

Campus des Nations is the most recent campus in the International School of Geneva Foundation. Located in the heart of Geneva’s international quarter, this campus has quickly established itself as an educationally pioneering school committed to putting student learning at the center of all its activities. Campus des Nations is proud to be an International Baccalaureate World School. Our programs are based on the IB’s ‘Learner Profile’, a set of ideals that inspire, motivate, and focus the work of the school and help students to become more thoughtful, moral, cultured, and caring. Fostering these qualities is at the heart of all we do. Campus des Nations is the smallest of the three campuses of the International School of Geneva. It opened in September 2005 and now has 680 students in the secondary school representing more than 90 nationalities.

Learning Support Teacher

Full-time 40 hours


Seeking a support teacher with a demonstrated history of achieving high standards in schools, successfully implementing and supporting changes, and providing guidance and leadership to students and educators in the field of specialized support.
With a focus on inclusivity and empowerment, you will be a committed educator who possesses a clear vision for supporting students in an inclusive setting. Additionally, you will be able to guide colleagues in ensuring equal access to the curriculum, irrespective of cognitive abilities.
You will get the opportunity to observe and assess students' performance with diverse requirements, such as those with difficulties in expressive and receptive language, dyslexia, written language impairment, ADHD, ASD, and giftedness.

The candidate must have experience collaborating with pedagogical staff to implement an inclusive educational strategy (including Universal Design Learning) that equips our students with the necessary skills to become self-reliant learners and fosters a sense of empowerment in their interactions with our students.
The candidate's capacity to read reports, write individual learning targets, liaise with parents, and provide feedback to all stakeholders are crucial for the success of our children and to promote excellence in education are vital.

Having the ability to help MYP and DP Mathematics and Sciences would be highly advantageous along with experience working with children aged 11-18.
The department prioritizes the acquisition of skills over the teaching of content. Therefore, having the knowledge and experience to design and implement skills-based intervention programs would be highly beneficial, including working in small group settings and co-teaching.
The successful candidate will work closely with Heads of Department and Programme Coordinators to provide 1 to 1 counseling to students to support their organization, executive functioning, and deadline management.
