Dr. David A. Wells and the GLOBAL School Consulting Group is honored to partner with Gateway International School (GIS) Hanoi and their parent company EDUFIT in seeking a Head of School for the Gateway International School – Starlake Campus.
GIS Hanoi is currently constructing a new campus, which will open as a Gateway International School for the 2020-21 school year. The school is a bilingual school (English-Vietnamese) that is already approved for membership in the Council of International Schools and is in pursuit of international accreditation through CIS. The school’s community consists of national families who value bilingual education that prepares children and young people for university study in Vietnam and in the West. Staffing for the school includes Vietnamese nationals, as well as English-speaking internationals, many of whom are recruited and appointed through a partnership with Gateway Education Global (www.gatewayed.org).
Gateway International School Hanoi is part of a young and rapidly expanding system of schools and strives to be the premier bilingual school in the city of Hanoi; providing education that inspires creativity and fosters a strong sense of identity to help students embrace a life that reaches their full potential. GIS Hanoi has a vision to serve the community with dedication and professionalism.
Donald Williams is the superintendent of the Gateway Schools, and Jannie Le Roux is the current Head of School for Gateway International School Hanoi. The Superintendent will work with the Starlake Campus Head of School in the development of the program and services to be offered on the Starlake campus throughout the year leading up to the opening of the new campus. The Head of School for the Starlake Campus will be named as soon as possible, to provide as much lead time as possible for engagement before the new campus is opened.
The successful candidate for the Head of School position will display a genuine love for children, a high energy level, and a willingness to work hard under tight deadlines and expectations commensurate with the responsibility.
Qualifications for the position include a master’s degree in an education-related discipline (administration, management, curriculum development, etc.) and up-to-date training in relevant areas of expertise. In addition, the successful candidate will have a minimum of five years of experience in a similar position at a large international school; proven experience in overseeing school operational finances in a wise, prudent, and transparent manner; proven experience in developing and maintaining good rapport with students, parents, and staff; and demonstrated skills in public speaking and written communication.
