Lanna International School recruits qualified teachers with international experience, as well as experienced teachers who wish to leave their home country to begin a career in international education.

You will join a supportive, energetic and enthusiastic team of teachers who are determined to make high achievement and enjoyment of school life a reality for all of our children.

A few of our current teachers have shared their own perspectives of life in Chiang Mai and what it is like to teach at Lanna. Hopefully, they can give you some insight in to what it might mean to be part of the Lanna community. Click here to read what they have to say.

Secondary School Vacancies

Teacher of Art (to A Level) for August start

For the coming school year, beginning August 2020, we are seeking to appoint an exceptional teacher of Secondary art. Art is a very popular and successful subject within the school and whoever is appointed will have the opportunity to develop art at Lanna from this already very positive position, whilst also having the freedom to innovate and teach with a wide variety of mediums. There is also the possibility to host/participate in exhibitions outside of the school, as has already happened several times.

The successful candidate will teach art at KS3, IGCSE and A Level. We currently follow the British IGCSE and A Level syllabuses from Cambridge International Examinations and the successful candidate must be confident of teaching art to this advanced level, including supporting students in the significant written component of CIE’s A Level course. They will be the sole teacher of Secondary level art (with a full-time art assistant) and will be responsible for ongoing planning, development and successful delivery of these courses. They will also have the opportunity to work alongside many dedicated, able and passionate Secondary teachers within a small, but highly successful, innovative, and not least – very friendly school.

The school promotes high standards in all areas, not just academics. As such, you will also be expected to take a full and active role in the life of the school; not only within your classroom and your own subject area. See the co-curricular section of our website for details of some of the many school activities that take place, and that you would be expected to volunteer to be involved with in some ways.

We are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, therefore all applicants must be willing to undergo rigorous child protection screening, including checks with past employers and criminal background checks. These checks are always made.

Please apply directly (with full CV, covering letter, and details of two referees) to:
