Jobs at TIS
Tsukuba International School develops critical thinkers and lifelong learners by providing opportunities for inquiry, creativity, and discovery, where respect for self, others and the environment is a core value.
Tsukuba International School is an international English-based elementary and junior high school in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan. We offer a full-time international curriculum in English for students from Grades 1 to 10. We are an IB World School authorized to offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate. We are also a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme (MYP). IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit the International Baccalaureate website.
(Only schools authorized by the IB organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (DP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.)
If you are interested in working at Tsukuba International School, please see our jobs list for any positions we are currently seeking to fill.
If we are not currently advertising any positions, you may still send in your resume (PDF or plain text format) to the following address for consideration during our next recruitment phase. We are particularly interested in recruiting teachers who have some knowledge of, or interest in, the International Baccalaureate and its primary and middle year programs. Note that including letters of reference and stating specifically what kind of position you are looking for (e.g. Grade 2 teacher, Middle Years Science teacher) will greatly assist in getting your application noticed and filed properly for future consideration.
You may also want to consider joining our Job Announcement Mailing List. When new positions become available, we will send an announcement to the list. (Please click on the link for more information about the list.)
Please note that we will only consider applicants who have teaching qualifications (e.g. university degree in education qualifying that person to become a school teacher) from countries where English is an official language. Tsukuba International School is NOT an English conversation school, and therefore we do not accept resumes from people who are not qualified teachers.
We may not respond to your submission if we are not currently recruiting, but we will keep your resume on file for a period of one year and, if you are a certified teacher at the elementary or junior high school level, we will consider you if a position does become available. Thank you for your understanding.
