Human Resources Frequently Asked Questions

I would like to apply to ISA but there is no current opening. What should I do?

Unfortunately we are not able to keep open applications on file, however, you are able to register for alerts via the careers centre on our vacancies page. You will then receive a notification the moment an opening is posted on our website.

What is a teaching certificate / teacher qualification?

A certified teacher is a teacher who has earned credentials from an authoritative source, such as the government, a higher education institution or a private source. How to obtain a certificate depends on previous qualifications and also on the country that you are currently residing in.

Does ISA keep CV’s on file in case a suitable position becomes available?

Internships

Unfortunately ISA does not have a formal internship program. Looking at our on-going projects; available mentor teachers; and the current demands on faculty; ISA cannot offer you a worth-while internship and will not be able to entertain your request.

Interviews at recruitment fairs

We are unable to arrange interviews before recruitment fairs, however we would recommend that you come to our stand to meet with our Administration team during the fair.
