Company Description

The Lüderitz Blue School is a not-for-profit private international school offering the British National Curriculum in Lüderitz, Namibia - the only international school in the region. We currently offer Grades 0-7 and are expanding to offer Grades 8-12. Since opening last year, our school has gone from strength to strength, welcoming more learners, staff and volunteers to our family. We currently have 40 enrolled pupils, including a high proportion on full scholarship, and our numbers are growing quickly. In January 2024, we opened our first boarding house to be able to welcome learners from outside Lüderitz.

Our nurturing and professional teachers deliver lessons with a holistic, child-centred approach and our learners are encouraged to think creatively, to reflect on their progress, and to develop their independence. Critical thinking, as well as inquiry-based learning, are key to the 'Blue School' learning environment.

Grades 0-6 are taught in multigrade classes (Grades 0-2, Grades 3-4 and Grades 5-6). We view this as a strong advantage as it allows children to inspire and help each other along on their learning journey.

Grade 7 learners are taught in a hybrid learning environment, with some lessons taught by specialist teachers in person, and others through Cambrilearn, a world-class online learning platform.

Job Description

Lüderitz Blue School is looking for a motivated, reliable and caring supply teacher to cover our upper Key Stage 2 Year 5-6 multigrade class from 8 April 2024 - 14 June 2024.

This teacher will be responsible for teaching Mathematics, English, Science, History, Geography, RE, Arts and other subjects in line with the UK International Curriculum, along with other necessary duties and responsibilities.
