Are you ready to join the team?
UWC Thailand (UWCT) aims to recruit passionate, dynamic and intelligent educators and staff who are energized by working with and around young people. Our recruitment of educators generally occurs November through January, but positions may be listed and filled on a rolling basis throughout the year. Educators with previous UWC and/or IB experience, personal experience with (or openness to) mindfulness practices and those with a desire to be involved in the residential life of the school are at a distinct advantage.
The recruitment of non-educational staff also occurs on a rolling basis throughout the year so interested applicants are encouraged to visit our employment page frequently. For educational and non-educational positions alike, applicants must have a strong alignment with the UWCT mission and values as they are essential to everything that we do.
Who we are and what we believe.
United World College Thailand (UWCT) is a co-educational, IB Continuum programme for students in Nursery through to Grade 12. Founded as Phuket International Academy in 2008, UWCT has grown to now serve a mix of nearly 500 day and boarding students, with approximately 250 students in the Primary division. Our first Grade 12 cohort graduated in May 2016 and we anticipate enrolment will continue to grow to over 800 students, including 150 boarders, by 2025.
A ‘mission-driven school’, UWCT is focussed on providing a holistic education through its education programme that consists of five components: Academics; Social and Emotional Learning and Mindfulness; Service; Activities and Outdoor Education. UWCT offers the continuum of three International Baccalaureate programmes – Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma – and has developed a justifiable reputation as being a leader in the field of Social and Emotional Learning and Mindfulness; an area in which we have considerable expertise.

Child Safeguarding Commitment
Safeguarding the welfare of children and young people is a priority and we expect all staff to share that commitment. Applicants for any position at UWCT undergo child protection screening including checks with past employers, law enforcement authorities and other governmental agencies as required.
Committed to deliberate diversity, UWCT guarantees that all employment candidates will have their application considered in a manner that is respectful of individual values and beliefs, free from discrimination based on race, ethnicity, colour, nationality, religion, gender, age, familial status and/or disability as we hire on the merits of skill, qualifications, experience and fit for the program. We are committed to a safe, healthy and rewarding work environment and will not tolerate discriminatory harassment or personal harassment in any form.
UWC Thailand became the 16th United World College in August 2016. As a UWC, we are committed to deliberate diversity not only in our students, but in the teachers and staff who work with them so that the adults mirror the nearly 70 nationalities represented on campus as we all seek to use education as a “force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future”.
UWCT was the first, and remains the only, not-for-profit, International Baccalaureate continuum school south of Bangkok. Our PYP, MYP and DP programmes all aim to develop internationally minded people who, recognising their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
As a World Academy of Sport accredited Athlete friendly education center, UWCT supports athletes to achieve their education and athletic goals at the same time.
