Job Description

History Teacher (A-Level & GCSE experience) Required for August 2021 Start

Baku is a city steeped in both modern and ancient history. From the labyrinth like UNESCO heritage old city to its modern tree lined and boutique filled boulevards where you feel more like you are in the heart of Paris. Baku really is a beautiful city off the beaten track but one that is fast becoming a popular destination for foreign travellers!

INTA Education are currently working with an established and well-known Private International School in Baku to recruit for an enthusiastic and passionate History Teacher for August 2021.

The school offers a state-of-the-art campus in the heart of the country’s capital city.  A prestigious local private school educating the children of the country’s business elite, the school is a bilingual, international-style school that offers a blended English and Azerbaijani-instruction curriculum.

The successful applicant will work in close cooperation with local staff, supported by expatriate teachers who discharge different subject-teaching and leadership responsibilities within the International Stream.
