Working at Qatar Academy Sidra

Qatar Academy Sidra is a private, non-profit co-educational English medium school. The school is aligned with the Qatari culture and serves the growing educational needs of the children of Qatar Foundation staff members.

Next year will be our fifth year in operation. It's both a rare challenge and a unique opportunity most educators don't get too often - the chance to shape the vision, character and culture of a school from its inception. As an IB World School we received our DP authorization in March 2016 and have just completed our PYP and MYP authorization visits.

As the result of increasing enrolment, Qatar Academy Sidra will be recruiting Early and Late Primary and Secondary School teachers for the 2017-2018 school year.

At the Secondary School level, we are looking for candidates who have the capacity to teach higher grades as the school enters into its second year of the DP programme next year.
