CLOSING DATE: 19 JULY 2021 STARTING DATE: OCTOBER 2021



Description of School:


The UK’s 2019 ‘IB School of the Year’ (and ranked 25th in the world in 2021) opened a Sydney campus in January 2021, focusing solely on academically elite, highly motivated, STEM-focused Year 11 and 12 students (only) – co-ed – and who have already chosen to pursue their careers in STEM sectors, and on the global stage. And for all our success in the UK over many, many years, both the current 2021 and incoming 2022 classes are the best we have ever seen.


Based in the heart of Sydney’s rapidly developing ‘Innovation and Technology Precinct’, just 8 minutes’ walk from Central, we use a ‘city office’ format and tertiary facilities to deliver to our students a ground-breaking ‘mixed secondary/tertiary’ experience without peer, providing an unmatchable, tangible context for their studies, university options and career planning. The curriculum enrichment opportunities provided by being immersed in such a professional, STEM-focused environment are unparalleled.


We are not a ‘school’ in a traditional sense. Westbourne is a professional/enterprise work environment. The incoming Year 11 students are treated as young professionals from Day 1. From our business attire dress code, to personal workstations, to joint projects with their UK colleagues, our sole goal is to prepare our students as leaders of the future, on the international stage, in STEM careers. Both student and teacher short-term exchanges with the UK will commence as soon as travel restrictions are relaxed.


Westbourne College Sydney students will graduate to the very best universities in Australia, the UK and around the world … and will then go on to run the show. Fully 90% of their UK colleagues go on to Russell Group universities, predominantly the G5.



Description of Position:


English teacher for Years 11 & 12

We are seeking quite simply the best English teacher in Sydney to join our highly-experienced team. While very much a STEM-focused college, English forms a central part of our curriculum (offered at both Higher and Standard Level) and you will have an equal voice in our team.


An ability to teach a second or third subject will be an advantage. Part-time options are also available.


Pay and conditions will be second to none.


Experience teaching the IB Diploma is certainly desirable, but not essential.


Accelerated training will be provided if new to the IB.


Our leadership team includes the same people who have led our success in the UK, ranking at the very top of the UK league tables since 2015, as well as highly experienced Sydney and Asia-based professionals that have previously worked at MLC and for the IBO itself. This is an inspiring, driven, dynamic and truly world-class team. We are fiercely proud of our history … but we are unshackled by it – we are at the very forefront of modern education.


Westbourne College Sydney is the second in our well-developed plans to create the world’s first truly global network of academically elite colleges. We have plans to open in Singapore and an online-based college for the English-speaking world in 2022 … and 1-2 colleges a year thereafter, establishing 6-continent coverage by 2024.


The opportunities for ongoing career development and international collaboration are limited only by your desire, drive and commitment.
