Posts which are advertised as "Intern" positions are designed so that the interns work with teachers in both the classroom and residential settings to develop an understanding of education in an international multicultural environment. Initially interns will observe and receive instruction on the expectations of the school. Over time the interns will take a leading role in different situations as they develop the necessary attributes and skills for that situation. All Intern positions are open to Tanzanian nationals only. The position has a small stipend and room and board are provided during school time.

Application Procedures

Any applications for either Moshi or Arusha Campus should include a full CV/résumé and the names and addresses (including e-mail addresses) of three professional referees. It is important to include details of any family members who may accompany you; we are unlikely to offer employment to a spouse unless as part of a teaching couple and local employment opportunities are extremely limited. Current Tanzanian regulations mean that we are only able to consider teachers under fifty five years of age who have a minimum of three years’ teaching experience.

As a minimum requirement, all applicants for teaching positions must have a first degree and a teaching qualification that entitles them to teach in their home country. International teaching experience is also desired. All teachers of diploma level subjects are required to have a minimum of three years’ teaching experience at a similar level, such as IB Diploma, AP, or Advanced Level experience.

For many teaching positions, experience of teaching IB PYP, MYP or Diploma (as appropriate) will be a significant advantage, but is not specifically required.

The school also uses placement agencies to assist in our search for strong teaching candidates. However we encourage direct applications and will not be liable for agency placement fees when teachers contact us directly through this website.

Applications for advertised positions should be made online at the following web page:

As we receive many applications for our positions, we will not normally be able to consider applications received by post or by email.
