Preschool Teacher for New, Progressive Model (Future) School (Qatar)

Starting date: Academic year 2019-2020
  • Are you a passionate and committed educator?
  • Are you fascinated by the way children learn?
  • Are you frustrated by traditional ways of teaching?
  • Are you convinced there must be a better way?

If you answer Yes to each of these questions, you are on the same page as us. We want to challenge the norm; think outside the box; be creative with our pedagogy and with our environment; take learning into new places and spaces, and prepare our children for a world we can only imagine. Personal growth; creativity; academic achievement – each is important in its own right, but we imagine a future of holistic integration that inspires our children to learn for the love of it and to graduate our schools prepared to follow the path of their choosing.

Our school is rapidly taking shape in our thoughts and ideas, and now we need to turn it into reality. You will be central to that process. You will bring ideas and experiences of your own as well as embracing those of others; you will draw inspiration from research and from progressive models of education across the Globe.

Our school will be exciting, innovative and very different, and it will be at the heart of the Qatar Foundation’s family of schools in Education City in Doha. It will be a dual-language school (English & Arabic) and, as such, applications will be particularly welcome from candidates who fluent in both languages as well as native speakers of English or Arabic. Primary grades will open first to set the stage for the School to grow organically towards a full K-12 program on maturity when we expect to have around 480 students.

Application Procedure: Kindly send your application by , which you can download from https://goo.gl/niYwjY , your CV and a Statement of education philosophy, including an explanation of why you believe you are the right person for the position to the Director, Mrs. Maryam Al-Hajri, at sanaacademy@qf.org.qa and copied to the Executive Director of QF Schools, Mr. Stuart Leeming, at sleeming@qf.org.qa
