Teaching Internationally

Teaching overseas in British international schools, run by a British owned and managed company, is a rewarding, refreshing and stimulating next step in a teacher’s professional career. Teachers do not need to have had prior overseas experience, nor indeed do you need to be fluent in the host country language. However you get more enjoyment and satisfaction in experiencing the different cultures if you make an attempt to learn some of the language.

The role

Being able to follow your chosen profession in different parts of the world will offer exciting opportunities to see places and understand new cultures. Our international schools teach a curriculum based on the English National Curriculum, but enhanced to suit the needs of an international community. Older students follow iGCSE and A' level/IB diploma programmes. Of course, we prefer teachers who have experience of the curriculum, but we also give detailed briefing and strong support to those who seek to become familiar with it.

Kevin McNeany

Since Orbital was founded in 2005, the group has grown quickly and in keeping with our business plan. I envisaged a group of international schools and colleges offering quality education, mainly in British style and tradition, to expatriate and host families in countries throughout the world.

The schools specialise in the English National Curriculum, augmented to meet the needs of specific international student populations and supported by an experienced team of educationists from their Cheshire base.

We were honoured this year to be awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2019. Our company believes that quality, transparency and accountability leads to success for our students, their families and the company,” chairman and founder Kevin McNeany said.
