UWC Thailand

UWC Thailand

UWC Thailand became the 16th member of the United World College movement in August 2016 when we adopted the shared UWC Mission to use education as a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. UWCT is adjacent to a national park in northeastern Phuket, 10 - 15 minutes from Boat Avenue and other shopping areas, 20 minutes from Phuket International Airport, 40 minutes from Phuket Town, and close to any number of world-class beaches. Our campus is part of nature and echoes our belief that activities, outdoor education and service are integral to raising—and attracting—great human beings. Our commitment to mindfulness and social-emotional learning is embedded throughout the Nursery to Grade 12 program, and as an IB Continuum school, inquiry drives our educational philosophy.

Pro-Diversity Statement: As a UWC, we are committed to deliberate diversity and therefore aim to hire staff as diverse as the students we serve. Our goal is to create an inclusive culture that gives voice to the variety of global perspectives. To do this, we encourage a wide range of candidates to apply, including people from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds. We consider all applications in a manner that is as respectful and as free from bias as possible as we pursue hiring the best available people who are experienced, qualified and incredible human beings.

We are looking for incredible human beings, who also happen to be world-class educators.

Commitment to using education as a force for peace and sustainability and having the stamina, resilience, and energy needed to commit the school pillars (Service, Outdoor Education, Activities, Mindfulness/SEL, Academics), is required. While IB experience is preferred, it is not necessary as we are looking for the right people (good humans doing great things with learners) to join our team regardless of their curriculum experience.

United World College Thailand (UWCT) is a CIS accredited, IB Continuum authorized, co-educational school for students in Nursery through to Grade 12, currently serving nearly 400 day and boarding students from +60 nationalities. As a UWC, we are committed to deliberate diversity and therefore aim to hire staff as diverse as the students we serve. Our goal is to create an inclusive culture that gives voice to the variety of global perspectives. To do this, we encourage a wide range of candidates to apply, including people from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds. We consider all applications in a manner that is as respectful and as free from bias as possible as we pursue hiring the best available people who are experienced, qualified and incredible human beings.

A mission-driven school, UWCT provides a holistic education through an education model that has five pillars: Academics; Social-Emotional Learning and Mindfulness; Service; Activities; and Outdoor Education. The School is a dynamic, hard-working environment and we seek people who will thrive in a student- and mission-centered culture, while endeavoring to remain balanced themselves.
