TBS is a safe recruiter committed to keeping children safe and happy. Please read our safeguarding policy below if you are considering an application.

We usually advertise in the Times Educational Supplement (www.tes.co.uk) in early November and interview in December for the following academic year. However, there may be rare vacancies that will be advertised through this website and the TES during the year.

For all teaching positions, we usually require at least 3 years of UK curriculum experience. Candidates must have the UK recognised teaching qualification and as part of our Safer recruitment policy, we require an enhanced DBS (CRB) check and an ICPC check.

For national positions, we require qualification and experience based on the nature of the job. All candidates must have obtained a degree in a relevant field from a renowned University/Institute. As part of the safer recruitment process, we require the most recent Police Clearance Form 

Pro-Active & ongoing Recruitment

We are always keen to know about candidates who are interested in becoming a part of the teaching team and dedicated applicants of the highest calibre with relevant qualifications and experience are invited to submit an application AT ANY TIME DURING THE YEAR.

 The school has a proactive approach to the recruitment and welcomes those with a genuine interest to submit their details for consideration at any time.

 All such applications will be acknowledged and potential employees will be invited to participate in a skype interview. Thereafter, and only with your permission, your contact details will be kept on record and you will automatically be informed about any suitable vacancies which arise in the future and which we feel might be of interest to you.

 An application letter should be included with your completed TBS application form and submitted by email to recruitment@tbs.edu.np or by post, marked for the attention of The Human Resource Department, The British School, PO Box: 566, Kathmandu, Nepal.

The British School Kathmandu is committed to safeguarding children and young people.

Induction Programme at TBS

During induction, we support new colleagues in moving to Nepal and transitioning to our culture at TBS. For all new staff members, the induction process starts prior to arrival and continues to support colleagues throughout their first year here. Our induction team provides all the necessary information and arrangements for moving to Nepal: finding accommodation; setting up a school email account; booking flights and organising freight. Professional and personal buddies are assigned to answer questions about working at TBS and living in Kathmandu. Upon arrival, we have a week-long programme dedicated to settling in and acclimatising. During the second week, there is a whole-school INSET programme where all staff will engage in professional development sessions and prepare for the year ahead.

Continuous Professional Development Plan

The process of developing teaching skills, deepening knowledge of subjects taught and coming to a broader understanding of educational issues is an ongoing one. As a professionally restless and thinking school, we support colleagues in looking for ways to improve the quality, depth and range of student learning and experience. Initially an attitude of constant self-evaluation, appraisal systems, regular whole school, section and other meetings, discussion with colleagues and reading of subject-related and educational books and articles play a vital part in the development of every teacher.  Secondly, in-service training, through the department and the staff plays a crucial role in every member of staff’s development. External CPD for TBS staff in the form of courses attended outside school, falls into three main categories:

  • CPD provided by fellow FOBISIA schools, affording the opportunity for the giving and sharing of ideas with colleagues from schools sharing the same philosophy as TBS OR CPD provided within the FOBISIA group for like-minded schools such as the Job Alike Workshops (JAWs).
  • CPD from Examination Boards or accreditation bodies, informing staff of changes to the syllabus, reviews of past examinations, testing changes etc.
  • CPD provided by external agencies or private companies.
