Teaching careers

closeopen

As an expanding education group, Kings' requirement for qualified academic teachers is increasing all the time.

We are keen to hear from suitably qualified candidates — from NQTs to early retirees — who share our desire to provide high-quality education in an international setting, and who want to further their career amongst a committed and experienced team of academic professionals.

 

Why work for Kings?

1. Positive, enthusiastic students who are motivated to succeed

Our students have travelled far to learn with us. They, and their parents, are making a significant investment into their futures. As such, they are extremely motivated when it comes to achieving their goals. They come from positive socio-economic backgrounds and are generally highly conscientious and committed.

2. Small classes for highly personalised, effective teaching

At Kings, the focus is very much on small classes and on providing high levels of individual help and support. On average, an A-level class will consist of 4 – 8 students, and a Foundation class of 8 – 12 students. As well as ensuring great results, having small classes means that students form strong bonds with their teachers – often continuing after they leave for university. At such an intense and significant period in a student’s life, you will play a crucial role in their development.

3. A culturally diverse community, where you’ll learn as well as teach

You’ll teach students from all over the world, using English as a common language. Students from over 80 countries studied with us last year, with strong representation from China, Asia, Russia, the Middle East, Europe and Latin America. Aside from providing new pedagogical challenges and perspectives, this diversity is sure to expand your own horizons and give you an insight into a wealth of different languages and cultures.

4. A supportive and inclusive culture, with a focus on professional development

Kings is often described by those who work here as a family, and each of our colleges has a very friendly, open feel. Teachers of all levels of experience are made welcome. Collaborating across all levels, and with colleagues across the wider college group, is very much encouraged. Our aim is to create a positive, supportive environment with plenty of opportunity for professional development. Of course, we have high expectations of our teachers, and have rigorous academic structures in place to ensure we maintain our excellent results.

5. A dynamic, growing organisation, with clear paths for progression

As a growing organisation, Kings offers plenty of opportunity for progression, no matter what your current level or experience. We are committed to developing clear paths towards increased levels of responsibility and reward teachers accordingly. We value a wide and varied mix of experience and backgrounds, and welcome applications from both experienced and newly qualified teachers, who we can help achieve QTS status if required.

6. Outstanding results and progression to top-class universities

Students at Kings achieve consistently good results, with many going on to study at some of the most renowned universities in the world, including Oxford, Cambridge and UCL. Kings students are encouraged and helped to exceed their expectations, and you will be part of their success.

7. A informal community which emphasises personal responsibility

At Kings, you’ll teach in an environment that is arguably closer to university than to a secondary school or even sixth form college. Ours is a community which is at once informal and friendly, yet which also expects high standards of behaviour, motivation and tolerance. You can expect an informal environment where teachers are addressed on a first-name basis, and where students are not required to wear a uniform

8. First-class teaching facilities and access to excellent resources

As a private education provider, we have been able to invest substantially in all of our colleges. Not only do we have bright, modern buildings, we also have state-of-the-art facilities within them. We know that great facilities aren’t as important as great teachers, but they go a long way to providing comfortable, contemporary surroundings that are conducive to both teaching and learning.
