Uniquely ISP International School, Hanoi
We are looking for teachers to prepare our learners for a future beyond our imagination, toward challenges that require complex, global and bold responses.
ISP International School Hanoi is recruiting full-time teachers to join our team from August 2022 school. We are currently hiring classroom and specialist teachers for grades K through 7.
As part of the International Schools Partnership (ISP) group:
- We put learners and learning ﬁrst. Learning is aﬀected by both internal factors (such as emotions, motivation and general health and wellbeing) and external factors (such as environment, curriculum and relationships). The external factor that has the most signiﬁcant impact on our students’ learning is the teacher.
- Everyone is a learner. So as one of our teachers, you are also a learner. Together, we will embark on an ongoing process of exploring, expanding and evolving your practice in ways that directly impact and improve student learning.
Using the IB framework, we are dedicated to making sure we implement and sustain programs proven to be most effective for student learning and well-being. We are a progressive school, willing to respond to the changing needs of our students in post-secondary education and the world that awaits them. A defining characteristic is our commitment to great teaching influenced by the latest research, and the flexibility to choose our learning standards from the United States. Also of utmost importance is our strong sense of community and vibrant campus, where learning is engaging for all our students.
The new campus is a special place where ideas are brought to life. We nurture, challenge and inspire all of our students. Our expert and truly caring teachers advance the world's leading curriculum. Our world class facilities encourage inquiry-based, student-led, enthusiastic learning. We challenge our students to engage with ideas and people. We promote strong ethics, environmental responsibility and we value our diversity.
