The International School of Gabon, Ecole Ruban Vert, is a jewel of Africa in terms of school infrastructure and vision. At ERV, our teachers are visionary change agents at the centre of learning. ERV teachers recognise the need to expand on education solutions and dialogues, rather than converge, with an understanding and conviction to contribute to a legitimate case for change. ERV teachers implement learning solutions to drive our vision. The role of the teacher supports the vision and mission as a collaborative partner to the Head of School.
We are seeking an energetic and enthusiastic individual to join us in our ambition to create a world class learning environment in which children may flourish. As a professional you will be supported in your growth and development and be expected to work as part of a dedicated and experienced team.
Ecole Ruban Vert is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All posts are subject to an enhanced DBS/Police check.
