<p>The <b><i>UK</i></b>’s 2019 <b><i>‘IB School of the Year’</i></b> opens a Sydney campus in January 2021, focusing solely on academically elite, highly motivated, STEM-focused Year 11 and 12 students (only) – co-ed, ~50:50 – and who have already chosen to pursue their careers in STEM sectors, and on the global stage.
</p><p>Based in the heart of Sydney’s rapidly developing ‘Innovation and Technology Precinct’, just 8 minutes’ walk from Central, we will use a ‘city office’ format and tertiary facilities to deliver to our students a ground breaking ‘mixed secondary/tertiary’ experience without peer, providing an unmatchable, tangible context for their studies, university options and career planning. The curriculum enrichment opportunities provided by being immersed in such a professional, STEM-focused environment are unparalleled.
</p><p>We are not a ‘school’ in the traditional sense. This is a professional/enterprise work environment. The incoming Year 11 cohort will be treated as young professionals from Day 1. From our business attire dress code, to individual, personal workstations, to joint projects with their UK colleagues, our sole goal is to prepare our students as leaders of the future, on the international stage, in STEM careers. A term in the UK will not quite be compulsory, but will be highly encouraged, as too will teacher exchanges. Westbourne College Sydney students will graduate to the very best universities in Australia, the UK and around the world … and will then go on to run the show. Fully 90% of their UK colleagues go on to Russell Group universities, predominantly the G5.
</p><p>We are seeking quite simply the best teachers in Sydney in the subjects below to join our highly experienced team.
</p><p>An ability to teach more than one of the above will be an advantage. Part-time options are also available.
</p><p><b><i>Pay and conditions will be second to none.
</p><p>Our leadership and core teaching team comprises the same people that have led our success in the UK, ranking at the very top of the UK league tables for over 5 years, as well as highly experienced Sydney and Asia-based professionals that have previously worked at MLC and for the IBO itself. This is an inspiring, driven, dynamic and truly world-class team. We are fiercely proud of our history … but we are unshackled by it, and we are at the very forefront of modern education.
</p><p>Experience teaching the IB Diploma is certainly desirable but not essential. Accelerated training will be provided for those new to the IB.
</p><p>Westbourne College Sydney will be the second in our well-developed plans to create the world’s first truly global network of academically elite colleges in collaboration with the world’s leading universities. We have plans to open in Singapore in 2022/23 and an online-based college (with physical intersessionals) for the English-speaking developing world … and 1-2 colleges a year thereafter, establishing 6-continent coverage by 2023/24.
</p><p><b><i>The opportunities for ongoing – and rapid! – career advancement are limited only by your desire, drive and commitment.
