North London Collegiate School Jeju seeks a Teacher of Korean Second Language (KSL), with the ability and experience to teach students across Key Stages 2 to IBDP.

This Teacher of Korean Second Language (KSL) position is in response to the growth of the European Languages and KSL Department and in response to the increase in students for whom Korean is a Second or Additional Language. As a teacher of language and cultural acquisition, the Teacher of KSL would be confident in teaching across a wide age range (from Key Stage 2 to IBDP) and to students with varying levels of proficiency and confidence in their command of the Korean Language. We welcome applications from teachers with recognised teaching qualifications in the teaching of Korean as a Second, Foreign or Additional Language, and whose experience and expertise would add capacity to an already vibrant and dynamic team. The successful applicant would also be expected to contribute to wider aspects of School life, be this in pastoral, boarding or beyond the curriculum capacities.


North London Collegiate School (UK) was founded in 1850 by Frances Mary Buss; her aim was to offer an academically ambitious education to girls, similar to that available to their brothers. The School has pioneered women’s education for over 160 years and remains among the highest achieving schools in the UK. Exam results regularly top the UK league tables and the School has repeatedly outperformed other prestigious schools in terms of Oxbridge success rates.

Unlike many UK independent schools, NLCS has a firm commitment to ensuring close links with its overseas branch schools. Every effort is made to replicate the ethos and standards of NLCS overseas. Wherever possible, staff for overseas schools are interviewed in London and by NLCS (UK) staff, as well as staff from our overseas schools. All teachers, once appointed, are invited to travel to London for induction and training at the UK school and this is generously funded by our partners.

Once an overseas branch is open, it is regularly monitored and inspected by the UK school, and close links are formed through pupil and staff exchanges, joint departmental projects, educational visits and extracurricular activities, such as videoconference debates and jointly produced student publications.

As the NLCS family of schools expands (with a further overseas school opened in Singapore in 2020), it is hoped that partnership activities will expand so that each school in the group develops links with the others. We also hope to see staff join the group in order to build their career with us and benefit from the many professional development and career-progression opportunities, which a group of world-class schools such as ours can offer.


In 2011, NLCS opened its first international branch school in South Korea NLCS Jeju. NLCS Jeju is a co-educational day and boarding school, and offers the IB Diploma to all students in the Sixth Form, and has achieved outstanding results since its first cohort of graduating in 2014. The School’s alumnae continue on to excellent universities around the world, including destinations in the UK, USA and Asia.

In September 2017, NLCS opened its second branch school in the UAE NLCS Dubai. The School is a co-educational, day school, following the IB Continuum, with pupils undertaking the IB Diploma in Grade 12.

NLCS (Singapore) opened in August 2020. This is NLCS’ third branch school. The School is a co-education day school in the heart of Singapore. North London Collegiate School Ho Chi Minh City opened in August 2022. This is NLCS’s fourth school blending the best of Vietnamese, NLCS and international education for its students.


North London Collegiate School Jeju (NLCS Jeju) is a leading British International school providing an exceptional education experience for 1500 day and boarding students aged 4-18.  The first international school to be opened in the vibrant Global Education City on the spectacular South Korean Island of Jeju, NLCS Jeju has rapidly established itself as a centre of educational excellence in South East Asia.

The School, now entering its eleventh year of operation, has nearly 1500 students on the roll.  NLCS Jeju offers the IB Diploma to all in the Sixth Form and has achieved outstanding results since its first cohort of graduating students in 2014. Over the last 4 years our average points score has been over 38 points and we have students achieving the perfect score as well as significant numbers of students achieving 40+points .


The ethos of NLCS Jeju echoes that of NLCS (UK) – every effort is made to recreate the ethos of the UK ‘parent’ school, whilst taking into account and remaining sensitive to the local culture and context.

The School aims to provide a first-rate ambitious academic education for every child, which inspires a life-long love of learning and gives the knowledge, attitudes and confidence to flourish.

At North London Collegiate schools, academic success is gained, not through an emphasis on results, by creating an atmosphere of rigorous scholarship; students are encouraged to study beyond the examination syllabus in order to develop their intellectual independence and love of their subjects. The pastoral well-being is of the utmost importance and good relationships are fostered between students and staff, as well as between the students themselves.

The co-curricular life of NLCS schools is vibrant, both in academic and non-academic fields. Students participate in a wide range of subject-focussed clubs and societies, from weekly book groups to Debating, to ‘Mad Scientists’ and ‘Model United Nations’. In the UK School, over forty academic clubs and societies operate weekly meetings and events, in order to give every opportunity for students to develop their intellectual curiosity, independence of thought and genuine love of subject; there are a large number of student-produced academic journals which reflect the particular interests of these societies. Non-academic activities also thrive as NLCS schools aims to create an environment in which the whole personality can grow. Co-curricular Sport, Music, Art and Drama are all of excellent quality and over seventy activities take place at lunch times and after school each day, with large numbers involved.


Students take IGCSEs and then follow the IBDP. This will be supported by an extensive co-curricular programme of Sport, Music, Drama and other activities, which closely reflects that at NLCS (UK), are provided to enrich and broaden the education offered, developing the talents and confidence of students.


Jeju Island, 130km off the southern coast of the Korean peninsula, is often described as one of Asia’s best-kept secrets. Jeju’s temperate climate, natural scenery and beaches make it a popular tourist destination for South Koreans as well as visitors from other parts of East Asia.

In 2007, UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee listed Jeju Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes as a World Natural Heritage site. The island also possesses outstanding geological features and special properties as a habitat for a variety of rare and endangered species.

Jeju provides NLCS staff and their families with a safe, peaceful and breath-taking environment in which to live. The employment pages on the NLCS Jeju website contain further practical information about life in Jeju.


The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All staff and volunteers are expected to share this commitment.
