Thank you for your interest in joining the enthusiastic team of educators here at Vientiane International School!
VIS is the most diverse community of learners in Laos. Hence, over the years, inclusion has become one of our greatest strengths–we promote the learning of multiple home languages, foster cultural awareness, and celebrate our differences as much as our commonalities. The learning experiences at VIS are designed and supported by evidence-based practices that serve the needs of our ever-changing mix of students. As a result, our students develop all the necessary skills to thrive in a variety of contexts while keeping a strong sense of identity.
We aim to create a safe environment where members of our community are valued for who they are; a brave space where individuals can explore and express all aspects of their identity that makes them unique –skills, experience, talents, perspectives, culture, languages, nationalities, race, ethnicity, gender, and more. We are strongly committed to working continuously on diversity, equity, justice, inclusion, and belonging to honor the dignity of every individual.
We encourage our learners, faculty, staff, and families to observe Lao culture with respect, and we provide them with opportunities for developing meaningful connections with local communities. We are all learners, and as such, we find extraordinary learning opportunities in our day-to-day lives while developing nurturing relationships with the people and communities around us.
A combination of elements, including the diversity in our school, the strong presence of humanitarian organizations in Laos, paired with the local pace, flavor, and lifestyle, provides a distinct and enriching experience that prepares our community to be friends of the human race.
To be eligible for employment, all candidates are required to commit to:
- The well-being of all learners by ensuring a healthy, safe and secure environment. All new appointments, therefore, will be subject to rigorous screening to ensure that they are suitable candidates to work with children and young people. This includes appropriate checks by external agencies to validate identity, employment history, qualifications, and self-declared criminal/civil offenses, as well as face-to-face interviews with at least two professional references from previous employers.
- The school's mission, vision, and values.
- PYP English as Additional Language
- PYP Classroom Teaching
It's a great school
and a great place to live!
