Employment opportunities


Building A Close-Knit, Innovative Team of International Educators


At Carlsbad International School we believe the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program best suits our mission. We are an IB World School and are looking for IB experienced staff. We will send staff to IB training, however, if your other experiences suggest you are the best person to teach at Carlsbad International School and to be a part of our team. IB World Schools are encouraged to view themselves as professional learning communities. They should demonstrate the following characteristics:


  • A shared vision of the school values and mission, which is consistent with the IB’s mission statement and values.
  • Continuous and ongoing commitment to improvement.
  • A culture of collaboration that is embedded into working practices—trust and risk-taking are encouraged, teachers openly share their professional practice.
  • Emphasis on the school culture, not just on organisational structures.
  • A focus on, and commitment to, learning rather than teaching.
  • Supportive, shared and devolved leadership that includes teachers as well as school leaders—all adults in the school, as well as students, should demonstrate and model a commitment to lifelong learning and to the IB learner profile; the school, not just individuals within the school, needs to be a learning organisation, continually reflecting and evaluating current practice with a view to improving. Building an effective and supportive learning community, with a commitment to continuous improvement, is vital for the successful implementation and development of the Diploma Programme in schools.
