GEMS Wesgreen International School was established in 1991 and came under the GEMS family of Schools in 2017. It is a National Curriculum for England School with 3500+ students.

Wesgreen Interenational School is a BSO (British Schools Overseas) accredited school and is recognised by the department for education (DfE) in the UK for its high-quality education provision. We have a long history of success and high achievement within the Sharjah Community. Alumni pupils are now bringing their own children back and many others have enjoyed success in some of the best Universities in the World. There is a passionate and supportive group of international educators and many continue to give long service to the school, such is the strength of the community.

Sharjah is the only Emirate to introduce the 4 day school week. Educational staff and students enjoy a 3-day weekend every week, which is proving highly beneficial to everyone's wellbeing.

We are looking to appoint a Business Studies teacher to join our existing team at GEMS Wesgreen International School for August 2024. The school has a focus on high academic standards, computational thinking, social and emotional education as well as inclusivity to allow all students to succeed through a range of academic and vocational pathways.

As well as being a great place to work, Sharjah is a progressive, vibrant, rapidly expanding city where the sun shines all year round. Teachers in Sharjah enjoy a great lifestyle as well as extensive travel and leisure opportunities around the region and further afield. Dubai is a short drive away with many of the schools staff making the short commute each day.

This is a fantastic opportunity for new teachers to gain valuable international exposure, and for more experienced teachers to advance their career with a global leading company, and world class International School.

Teaching at GEMS is not just a job, it's a career. Our teachers enjoy free access to leading CPD programmes and have the opportunity to grow with the company on a global scale.
