Full job description (.pdf format)

Kolej Tuanku Ja’afar (KTJ) is a thriving international, day and boarding school set in beautiful Malaysian countryside, an hour’s drive south of Kuala Lumpur. The School was established in 1991 and now caters for more than 1,000 students aged 3 to 19.

The Primary School follows the English national curriculum in mathematics and literacy, alongside the International Primary Curriculum; while the Secondary School prepares students for IGCSEs and A Levels. Most students go on to study at UK universities.

We are looking for an inspirational and highly-motivated leader to join our Malay Department. The successful candidate will line manage teachers of Malay and Local History, who teach across both Primary and Secondary Schools, ensuring all staff aspire to high standards in teaching and learning. They will also review and develop the curriculum, assessments and approaches to feedback. Alongside their leadership role, the Head of Malay will deliver high-quality, challenging and fun lessons and will contribute to the holistic education offered in our boarding environment. 

Candidates must have at least two years’ experience in contexts which prioritise student-centred learning.

For the right candidate, we would discuss the possibility of leadership of the Faculty of Languages, which includes French and Chinese, as well as Malay.

In return, we can offer dedicated and creative colleagues and enthusiastic and capable students, supported by excellent resources and state-of-the-art facilities. KTJ is a friendly and supportive environment for students and staff alike. More information about the School is available on our website.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to security vetting.

Contact details of two referees, one of whom should be your current employer, should be included.
