Nafasi za Kazi 7 Job Opportunities at International School of Tanganyika (IST)

The concept of IST began taking shape as the result of an increased international outlook and an influx of expatriate workers and their families in Dar es Salaam, following Tanganyika’s independence. With the growing international community, several parents began exploring the possibility of founding an international school.

This group of parents, together with the assistance of the then Geneva-based International Schools Association, founded IST in 1963.

The doors of the school opened with 214 elementary-aged pupils and 12 teachers. Those numbers have grown dramatically over time to make the school what it is today: a thriving international school offering its students a rigorous academic programme coupled with a wide range of extra-curricular activities from the young age of three to Grade 12.

We seek teachers who are passionate about educating young minds and who can demonstrate resourcefulness and flexibility. Tanzania is a wonderful country, with outstanding opportunities for individuals and families.

Teachers who thrive here tend to be active and intrepid and are often called upon to show a good sense of humour.

We seek clear commitment to our school’s values of responsibility, inquiry, compassion, balance and diversity.

We have a strong preference for candidates who have experience with the International Baccalaureate and who have worked successfully in a culturally diverse environment in a less developed country. Our teachers are expected to be able to use ICT effectively in their teaching.
