Recruitment

Primary

All primary class teachers must have a UK teaching qualification or the international equivalent and/or recent experience of teaching the English National Curriculum and Foundation programme, or a similar programme.

Secondary

Teachers in the secondary school must have a UK teaching qualification or the international equivalent and/or recent experience of teaching the English National Curriculum or examination syllabuses offered at the KS4 or KS5 level, including the IB programmes. Some subject teachers may be appointed without a full UK qualification if they have similar qualifications from institutions in other countries.

Teaching Assistants

Teaching Assistants are expected to have English as a mother-tongue or be fluent in English.

Non-teaching staff

Non-teaching and administrative staff should have appropriate qualifications, skills and experience in their particular field.

Manual staff

Manual staff should have appropriate skills and experience for their role and be good team players.

Job descriptions

Each member of staff at the ICS will have a job description identifying the range of their responsibilities and will be updated as appropriate. These are available from the Principal or Heads of School or the HR department if reference to them is required.

Contracts

Contracts for "local staff" are presented on an annual basis. Internationally appointed staff members are normally initially awarded a two-year contract with the possibility of extending the contract on an annual basis.
The contracts include detailed legal requirements and remuneration. The school will honor Jordanian requirements for employer contributions to the appropriate funds. All contracts for posts are subject to the Jordanian Labour Law.

Salaries

The school reviews the local and the international market and decides the appropriate salary scale for expatriate and locally appointed staff.

Expatriate staff

For expatriate staff, the starting level at appointment will be on a salary scale related to the current UK pay spine and the international market, taking into consideration the qualifications, expertise and other related skills.

Local staff

All locally employed staff will be placed on appropriate salaries with regard to their qualifications and previous work experience.

Handbook

The Staff Employment Handbook has further details of many of these issues. It is available to all staff.
