Teach Overseas in Saudi Arabia

Search Associates is pleased to represent Nün Academy Kunskapsskolan, Jeddah, an international bilingual school in Saudi Arabia. The school is located in a modern residential area of Jeddah, only 1,000m from the beautiful Red Sea, with all that it has to offer. The school follows the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) Curriculum and provides personalized education using the proven Kunskapsskolan Education (KED) Program™, which puts the student at the center of the learning process. The school’s website says,

“Students . . . with the guidance of their personal coach, set and work towards their own personal goals, with the ambition of achieving high final results.”

Nün Academy Kunskapsskolan is fully accredited by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Education. The school has been expanding— almost doubling in size every year and adding Year 4 to its Nursery-Y4 program in 2018! Currently, 240 K–4 students of 10 nationalities are enrolled. More than three-quarters of the students are Saudi Arabians, with 4% from North America and the U.K. The teaching staff includes overseas teachers from US, UK and New Zeeland. The Nün Academy Kunskapsskolan curriculum also includes the U.K. Early Years Program. The school adds,

“The power of our model, and, ultimately, the essence of our vision reside in the integration of internationalism, bilingualism, and self-knowledge delivered through a personalized education framework by well-trained and passionate educators.”

Nün Academy Kunskapsskolan can only hire female candidates and prefers to hire single teachers. They would consider a female who is married to a non-teaching spouse. Teachers must be certified and hold a degree in the subject they will be teaching. Nün Academy Kunskapsskolan will consider outstanding, newly-certified teachers and those accredited from non-English-speaking countries; however, English teachers must be native English speakers. Work visas may be obtained up to the age of 60.

Nün Academy Kunskapsskolan provides quality housing, complete with furnishings, within a housing compound of high standards, 10 minutes from the school by car. Teachers receive a settling-in allowance, and the school pays for one annual round-trip plane ticket home for the teacher and her dependents. Additionally, a tuition benefit of up to 100% is awarded for up to two children. Nün Academy Kunskapsskolan, as part of the Kunskapsskolan Education (KED) Network of 40 schools around the world, has a program in place for professional development. Local health insurance, including dental is also fully covered. All these benefits can allow for some savings.
