UNSOLICITED AND SPECULATIVE APPLICATIONS

 

Le Régent welcomes applications at any time of the year. They are passed on to the appropriate Director of Studies who files those of interest. Applicants may be contacted if there is a possibility of future openings, but this is rare, although it is standard procedure to send acknowledgement of receipt.

Although Le Régent offers an education in English, the school is located in a French-speaking part of Switzerland and an ability to speak or a willingness to learn French is an advantage.

 

APPLYING FOR TEACHING POSTS AT LE RÉGENT

Le Régent employs about 50 full- and part-time academic, music and sports teachers, about two thirds of whom are full-time academic teachers on English-speaking programmes. Teachers come from across the world, and it is school policy to maintain a mix of nationalities and approaches to match the international character of the school. The majority are from the UK, but many other nations are represented.

RECRUITMENT PROCEDURES

Vacant posts are advertised on this website, in the local press, and in the Times Educational Supplement (or TES) in the UK.

All applications for posts advertised on the TES must be through their website and not by mail to the school.

All applications are acknowledged, but candidates who hear nothing further within the following three weeks should assume that their application has been unsuccessful.

Candidates whom we decide to interview are contacted by telephone and/or email. Interviews may take place online or in Switzerland. If travel is possible, all successful candidates are interviewed in Switzerland at least once before appointment.

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS FOR ALL APPLICANTS

Le Régent’s motto is “truly Swiss, truly international”, so it is not an imitation British or US boarding school “on the continent”, nor is it a simple international school catering to resident locals or expatriates, although it may have elements of both. As a day and boarding school in an exceptional location, Le Régent is forging a distinctive character of its own with a strong emphasis on “future-ready” learning, holistic education and the importance of outdoor education.

Although Le Régent offers an education in English, the school is located in a French-speaking part of Switzerland and an ability to speak or a willingness to learn French is an advantage. Given the school’s setting, a love of sport and the outdoors is also an asset for applicants.

Le Régent expects all candidates to be appropriately qualified, with at least a first degree and a teaching qualification. Relevant teaching experience is of course desirable and we particularly welcome:

 

  • knowledge and experience of the International Baccalaureate and GCSEs
  • experience of international education
  • experience of and/or a commitment to boarding
  • a commitment to holistic educational principles
  • a commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people
  • an interest in outdoor education
  • experience and ability in digital learning (Le Régent is one of Switzerland’s few Apple Distinguished Schools)

APPLICATIONS

Applications should comprise:

  • a letter of application, indicating candidate’s educational philosophy
  • a complete Curriculum Vitae (including details of all employment, educational qualifications, as well as personal details such as age and family circumstances which may be important for children’s schooling and or partner’s employment possibilities
  • the names, addresses and relation to the candidate of three referees including their current employer.

All applications will be treated in confidence.

SAFEGUARDING

Aligned with the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection, Le Régent holds itself  to a high standard of effective recruiting practices with specific attention to child protection; background checks are carried out, and any candidate eventually appointed will also be expected to provide evidence of his or her suitability for work with children.
