Work with Us

Come and be a part of our innovative and service-oriented learning community

Who we are looking for?

Charterhouse Malaysia is looking for inspiring teachers of A-Level  to join our founding team in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for August 2021. This presents a rare opportunity for outstanding practitioners to contribute towards the success of a highly progressive, future focused school, with a supportive leadership team who want to see you develop and succeed.

Charterhouse Malaysia’s pedagogical approach emphasises imagination, discovery, and learning by doing. Supporting students as they study towards A-level qualifications, the A-Level specialist will apply creative and inspiring pedagogies to support their students as they acquire a secure grounding in the knowledge and skills of the subject.

Core to our outlook, Charterhouse Malaysia has an explicit commitment to the promotion of education in social enterprise through service learning. Thus, teachers at our school will be expected to work towards our vision:

“Future Ready – Education for a new reality”  

In addition to teaching, the A-Level specialist will share in the wider pastoral and co-curricular life of the school. This will include contributing to activities as part of the ‘Spectra Smarts’ programme, supporting a group of students as a House Tutor and in this, having oversight of the Independent Learning Projects of those students, taking a share of leadership in House activities, and leading at least one extra-curricular activity.

Teachers will follow the school calendar with some additional time for training prior to the start of the academic year. Occasional participation in outreach or promotional activities may be required, but every effort will be made to ensure that this demand is reasonable and shared equitably amongst all colleagues.
