ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT/TEAM 

The British Council Singapore has four centres (Napier Road, Tampines, Marsiling and Toa Payoh). Napier Rd offers both Young Learner and Adult courses and is where our TDC (Teaching and Development Centre) and Contracts teams are based, in addition to many members of our support staff and regional colleagues. Toa Payoh offers mainly Young Learner courses alongside a small number of adult courses and also houses our PDC (Professional Development Centre). Like Toa Payoh, Marsiling also offers mainly Young Learner courses with a small selection of Adult courses. Finally, Tampines offers only Young Learner courses but is also where our BCPS (British Council Pre School) is located.

 

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING AND WHY
There is a Deputy Academic Manager based in each branch to support the Academic Manager in the running of Young Learner and Adult courses, and to support with the delivery of additional courses at that centre, such as PDC, TDC, BCPS and Contracts courses (1-1 and Holiday Camps). The Child Protection Coordinator works alongside the Academic Managers, Deputy Academic Managers, Product Senior Teachers and other Coordinators as well as the Heads of Products to lead a team of teachers.

WHAT IS INTERESTING ABOUT IT
This is a great opportunity for teachers who are keen on taking on a future management role to gain the experience and knowledge. You can take pride in the fact that you will be part of a team that enables the British Council to meet its objectives and gives all our customers an exceptional experience.

 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

ABOUT THE BRITISH COUNCIL

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust.

We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society. Last year we reached over 80 million people directly and 791 million people overall including online, broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934, we are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body.

Valuing diversity is essential to the British Council’s work. We aim to abide by and promote equality legislation by following both the letter and the spirit of it to try and avoid unjustified discrimination, recognizing discrimination as a barrier to equality of opportunity, inclusion and human rights.

 

All staff worldwide is required to ensure their behavior is consistent with our policies.

 

The British Council is a full member of Keeping Children Safe (KCS) and has achieved level 1 child safe certification. We believe that all children have the right to be protected from all forms of abuse as set out in article 19, UNCRC, 1989 and that every child matters - everywhere in the world. In line with the British Council's Child Protection policy, any appointment is contingent on thorough checks including criminal record checks, in line with legal requirements.
