About the job
Bloom World Academy, located in the centre of Dubai in a state-of-the-art new building/campus, is seeking to appoint a Maths Teacher for September 2024.
Bloom World Academy was launched in August 2022 and educates children from ages three to 18 years. The school has been hugely successful, so far, in challenging convention and doing things differently in Dubai for the benefit of learners, families and teachers.
Every aspect of learning and teaching at Bloom World Academy has been considered – how we do it, why we do it and the impact it is having. This has directly led to many firsts for the UAE. BWA is the first school in UAE to start at 9am; the first school where each student and their family can choose their own timetable (learning pathways), and a school where each student has a Learning Achievement Passport (LAP) where the performance and progress is shared with the student and family several times a year.
Most of all, BWA is a school which puts family-life first we encourage parents to be in school, even work from school in our community café, attend regular workshops and to join our weekly, celebratory community forum.
Our approach has been successful, we are exceeding all expectations, and therefore wish and need to appoint a notable number of creative and dedicated teachers, expert practitioners who really want to apply their skills in a forward-thinking, creative school where the craft of teaching is highly valued.
