Its recruitment procedures follow international “Safe Recruitment” guidelines. All teachers hired by AISVN are subject to thorough background checks and must present satisfactory results from both home of record and previous countries in which they have resided. Detailed resumes and reference reports provided by placement agencies, as well as an extensive interview process conducted by the school’s hiring team, help ensure the rigor of the AISVN commitment to “Safe Recruitment.” Former employers are contacted for every hire.

The Council of International Schools website includes a comprehensive resource that provides information on criminal background check procedures worldwide. More information can be found at this link.

AISVN requires all candidates to produce these certificates before arrival at the school as a condition of employment.

Technology

AISVN has a strong commitment to technology and Google Apps and Managebac are used throughout the school. We are a one-to-one laptop school from Grade 6-12 and use a combination of iPads and laptops in the Elementary School. Students may access course work from home or from any device in the school. We expect all teachers to be or become versatile with Google Apps. Teachers are issued a PC laptop when they arrive.

Optimism

Vietnam is a rapidly developing country and there is a great sense of optimism about the future here (a recent study identified the Vietnamese people among the most optimistic people in the world). AISVN shares this optimism and our school is committed to creating a dynamic learning environment for students and teachers that is challenging and rewarding. We are particular about who joins our teaching faculty because we are protective of the quality of learning at one of the most dynamic young schools in Southeast Asia. You need to have a very positive attitude and a strong work ethic to be successful at AISVN. As an educator, if you think you can meet or exceed our expectations, and your personal teaching philosophy aligns with our mission and vision we look forward to hearing from you.
