How to Apply

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 Years, Middle Years, and Diploma Programmes. Note that including contact information for three professional 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.


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 preschool, elementary, junior high, or high school level, we will consider you if a position does become available.
