South View and You

Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don’t want to. Sir Richard Branson’s famous quote is one that lies at the heart of our professional development programme and colleague ethos.

Since its opening in 2017, South View School has grown positively and progressively drawing children and adults from over 70 nationalities. Working with us offers you the opportunity to be part of a school that is professional, enthusiastic, and truly international with a firm British basis of academics, values and global citizenship.  Located in Dubai, our campus is modern, bespoke to learning and geared to stimulating curiosity and enquiry for pupils and colleagues.

Excellent people seek excellent prospects and at SVS, we are focussed on ensuring your time with us not only draws on your skills and experiences but also adds value to your professional portfolio. Like our pupils, you are a critical part of the South View family; someone to be nurtured. Our comprehensive CPD programme ensures that you are able to gain, share and develop valuable professional skills that are transferable and recognised globally throughout the year.

The Ability to Specialise and Enhance

Each week: We offer comprehensive weekly training that focusses on every aspect of our profession utilising in-house skills as well as external providers.

Colleagues are encouraged and supported in developing their skills in new areas.  As part of this, we want to hear from YOU as to how we can support you in your career to both our and your advantage.
