About the English Teacher - Senior School Position
Haven of Peace Academy is a growing Christian International School overlooking the Indian Ocean in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. With over 380 students from 30 nationalities we are committed to providing an excellent Christ centred education that meets Western Academic standards. By being here we are integral to many mission organizations and projects in and around the area while also being able to support the education of future African leaders.
We are recruiting for a High School English Teacher to prepare students for their Cambridge exams (IGCSE and A Level).
It is HOPAC’s goal to keep school fees affordable for missionary children and Tanzanian children. In order to ensure that school fees remain affordable, HOPAC provides teachers with a monthly living allowance. This typically covers accommodation and utilities. The amount is dependent on the size of family. A single teacher receives $500 a month, a married teacher $800, a married couple both working at HOPAC $900, an additional $100 is added per child. These base amounts increase by $100 after the first year only. Children of teachers are provided with spots at HOPAC.
Staff are required to raise support for travel, health insurance, and all other expenses. Our compensation system allows us to keep our school fees at a fraction of the cost of other international schools in Dar es Salaam and provide a high quality education that is affordable for missionary kids, Tanzanians, and non-profit workers.
Staff are also expected to work with their mission to find their own accommodation; however, HOPAC is able to assist in this process. If you are not already connected to a sending organization, we would be happy to connect you to an organization that assists Christian teachers with preparing to teach overseas.
