About the role

Westminster International School offers a generous remuneration package in line with our aim of teachers feeling valued and well-rewarded for their work.  

We seek a highly skilled and committed IB MYP Coordinator capable of working in a collaborative environment, achieving very high educational standards from day one, and providing learning experiences that are engaging and enjoyable for children. This is an important role as the school takes its first steps with the International Baccalaureate programme, and we seek a candidate with the experience, knowledge, skills and positive mindset necessary to lead the implementation of the programme.

We provide a modern, positive and excellently resourced school environment, experienced senior leadership staff and very positive and effective school governance overseen by Westminster University. The school has a powerful IT infrastructure with interactive whiteboards in every classroom, ICT and robotics room, laptops and tablets for student use.

Staff development strategy is central to our mission at Westminster, utilising our internal talent, visiting INSET providers from tier-one UK and international schools and capitalising on our strong links with Westminster International University. A rich variety of professional development and leadership opportunities will undoubtedly be offered to our founding team of staff, including necessary training required as the school embarks on the journey towards becoming an IB World School in the future.

The successful applicant will work in close cooperation with a team of twenty other expatriate teachers and senior leaders forming the start-up team, including the Academic Director, Head of Primary, Head of Early Years, Accelerated English Leader, Class Teachers for Reception to Year 6, and Specialist Secondary Teachers.

We have extremely high hopes for our new school and we seek energetic, innovative and capable professionals who can contribute to our vision and help make it a reality.  

  

About the school

Westminster International School, Tashkent opened its doors to students at its purpose-built, state-of-the-art campus in September 2019.   A project that enjoys the full backing of the long-established and highly-respected Westminster International University in Tashkent, the school aims to establish itself as Tashkent’s premier international school provider.  The school will educate children of the country’s business elite and international diplomatic and business communities, using the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) for Primary, and the IB programme for Secondary.

In September 2019 the school began to offer class Pre-Nursery - Year 6 (ages 2-11); for students aged 5 and older, the school offers Mainstream (MS) Classes to children ready to access the curriculum at a level in line with UK age expectations and Accelerated English (AE) Classes to children newer to learning in an English-instruction environment.

While a settling period is necessary for a new school startup, we will typically expect our Mainstream Class students to meet or exceed UK age-expectations in standardised assessments and to significantly exceed these by the end of our Secondary School.  The school aims for the vast majority of children to graduate from AE to Mainstream within 1.5 - 2 years and carefully manages academic provision, admissions and class numbers to make this a reality. 

In January 2020, we will open secondary classes for Y7-10, using the IB MYP.

A team of around 20 expatriates is being recruited to work alongside host-country nationals in 2019-20.
