Teaching in the Isle of Man
Where could you teach?
The Isle of Man has 5 secondary and 32 primary, state-funded, schools. Primary schools are located across the Island, while secondary schools are located around the major population centres of Douglas, Castletown, Peel and Ramsey. If you choose to live away from town you will be treated to a scenic commute each morning, rarely lasting any more than 20 minutes. There are also two independent schools, The Buchan School and King Williams College.
Career Development Opportunities
All our employees have access to the Learning, education and Development (LeaD) facility. LeaD offers an extensive range of courses that employees can attend and many courses facilitated online. Our approach to staff development means you’ll have regular opportunities to discuss your pathway with your manager and receive support to help you achieve success in your chosen career. The Island’s schools support teacher training and progression all the way through to headship. Opportunities for professional development and study can include:
- Newly qualified teachers (‘NQTs’) and Early Career Teachers will receive a tailored programme of professional development and monitoring.
- In their first and second years, NQT’s and Early Career Teachers teach fewer lessons than more experienced teachers, freeing them up for training and development.
- Staff are encouraged to further their own professional qualifications and a ‘Leadership in Education’ Master’s degree programme is available on Island through the University of Chester.
Please note that UK Qualified Teacher Status is a requirement to teach in Secondary Schools in the Isle of Man.
