UWCSEA welcomes applications from all qualified candidates. If you have a strong sense of adventure and an exceptional level of commitment to teaching and learning, UWCSEA might be the perfect next step for you. Here are some reasons why:
- We provide an extensive professional learning programme that brings international experts to the school
and sends teachers to courses and programmes in the region and beyond.
- Our academic results are outstanding, but our focus on holistic education means teachers are involved in all aspects of the programme. At UWCSEA you can take students trekking in the Himalayas or kayaking in Thailand, building houses in Cambodia or skiing in Switzerland. Equally, you can support them in making real connections with the local communities, working with children with multiple disabilities or teaching life skills to domestic workers who have been the victims of violence. All our students and teachers, from Kindergarten1 to Grade 12 are involved in outdoor education and service activities.
- As a non-profit organisation, we invest 3% of income in scholarships for nearly 100 students each year. These scholars come from a wide variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. You can teach and learn from these exceptional students.
- The College is at an exciting time in its development and you can be part of that. Our College-wide curriculum articulation project, the Centre for International Education, the integration of technology into teaching and learning and the development of our outdoor education facilities are just some of the exciting initiatives our staff are currently involved in.
