LHS, an IB Diploma Program candidate school, is looking for an IB DP Coordinator to join our team as we expand our student enrollment in the 2019-‐2020 school year. Successful candidates will have a proven track record of reaching beyond excellent teaching and administrative work to demonstrate ambition and a desire to improve the contours of 21st century education. We are looking for a detail-‐oriented person who likes the challenge and hard work associated with a young school.
The role of the DP Coordinator is crucial to the successful development and implementation of the Programme. At LHS, we provide sufficient time, resources and administrative support to undertake the many duties required of this position. The LHS environment is collaborative and cooperative, and we expect our IB Coordinator to work closely with our Head of School, and IB-‐trained and willing staff. The LHS IB Coordinator will receive any necessary training introduced by the IBO in the future.
In an interview, candidates will be able to clearly articulate a coherent image of the results they most want to create in life alongside a realistic assessment of the current reality of their lives today. They show an awareness of interdependency of school systems and how to deal with the forces that shape the consequences of their actions. They are skillful in discussion, especially in small groups, and can talk safely and productively about challenging and discomfiting ideas.
The work is demanding-‐-‐our students are international students, many of whom are striving to gain university and college admission. It is rewarding personally and professionally. LHS strives to present rich professional development opportunities. Salaries are commensurate with experience.
