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 benefit from the central services and support that an experienced team of specialists provides. My team here at our head office, near Manchester, are united in the belief we share with our school heads: quality and accountability are paramount and lead to success for our students, security for their families and progress for the company.
