Sponsored Applicants

International Schools Group (ISG) prefers to employ teaching couples; however, depending on circumstances, single status candidates may be considered. Candidates must hold a valid teaching certificate or license and have at least a bachelor’s degree. Two or more full years of successful teaching experience are preferred. Positions will vary and may require American curriculum, British National Curriculum, and/or IB Diploma Progamme experience.

In signing contracts with the International Schools Group our sponsored teachers and administrators have taken the first steps in a new adventure, both personally as well as professionally. To help  in the relocation process the HR Department has put together information in the form of a blog.
