Please do let me reassure you that in considering applying for a post at TES you are embarking upon a journey that, should you be successful, will produce considerable rewards and a huge amount of job satisfaction.

First and foremost the school is a busy, thriving and forward-thinking environment where children have a fantastic opportunity to develop and enjoy the high quality education on offer. As one of only 38 international IAPS schools (Independent Association of Prep Schools) outside of the UK we have a kitemark of excellence and by following the national curriculum for England, delivered by British trained staff, the school is an ‘oasis of Britishness’ in the heart of the Middle East. TES teachers work hard and consider themselves to be extremely lucky to have the opportunity to hone their skills with delightful children in a well-supported, highly professional and rewarding environment.

Working at TES provides teachers with an opportunity to be well paid in an excellent school, in a tax-free environment and in one of the richest countries in the world. If you are the sort of person looking for an adventure, then please do go ahead and apply. Many staff in the school came for a year or two and are still here a decade later. Indeed, there is certainly something about living and working in Kuwait that gradually permeates its way through you and leaving can prove to be difficult for many.

If you are interested in joining our team I look forward to hearing from you. Scroll to the bottom of this page for the list of available positions.
