"No other school I attended was able to give me the sort of education I received at UWCSEA, not only in academics, but in life."
Shan Bertelli (2007 UWCSEA graduate)
Future employment opportunities at UWCSEA
Over the next two years, a number of opportunities will arise at UWCSEA. These opportunities will be partly due to the expansion to full capacity of UWCSEA East, our second campus in Singapore and the consequent reorganization in management structures. There is also our ongoing need to replace teachers who leave Singapore.
Our means of recruitment are diverse. All vacancies are advertised on this website and also appear online through the CoIS, IBO, Round Square and SEARCH websites. We advertise in print media through publications such as The Times Education Supplement, The Australian, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Melbourne Age, The New Zealand Herald, the Toronto Globe & Mail and Le Monde d'Education.
There are normally two recruitment sessions for teaching staff during the year: the first in October and the second in January/February. Interviews take place in Singapore, London and elsewhere as appropriate. Administration and support positions are advertised throughout the year as need arises.
Student numbers at Dover are expected to remain stable as the Dover Campus is effectively full. Staff turnover is predicted to be 10-15% per year of our 280 teaching staff complement.
UWCSEA East opened at its new campus in Tampines, on the east of Singapore, the academic year beginning August 2011. From August 2012, the East Campus has students from K1 to Grade 11 with the first Grade 12 students expected to graduate at the end of the 2013/2014 academic year. By August 2014, we expect to be employing up to 220 teachers at the East Campus teaching students in K1 to Grade 12 across a variety of curriculua.
We will continue recruiting staff on an ongoing basis during the next two to three years. We will advertise opportunities at the East Campus as outlined above, and may sometimes advertise vacancies for both campuses simultaneously.
