Message from the Head of Dover Campus

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Dover Campus.  

Dover is an extraordinary community of 3,000 students and more than 300 staff in which there never seems to be a moment where something isn’t happening. Whether in the classroom, taking part in service activities, on the sports field, on expedition, on the stage or on the playground, there is a feeling of extraordinary vibrancy, dynamism and warmth.

The campus has changed considerably over the past few years, but what hasn’t changed is the sense of purpose. At a time when more and more school mission statements talk about holistic education and global awareness, the College’s vision of educating people to embrace challenge and take responsibility for shaping a better world stands out for its power and simplicity. Much of what you will see around the campus is student-driven, reflecting the trust we have in our students to make appropriate decisions and to work to make education a force for a more peaceful and sustainable future.

As I go around the campus, I am often struck by the quality of the relationships between students and staff. These are based on mutual respect, and this without doubt goes some way to explain the outstanding academic results. However, academic results are only part of what we do, and our equal commitment to other areas such as service, outdoor education and activities is what helps to make us who we are.

Why work for us


UWCSEA's vision is to be a leader in international education, with a worldwide reputation for providing a challenging, holistic values-based education with an emphasis upon academic achievement, service to others, teamwork and leadership.

In the pursuit of this vision, UWCSEA provides teachers with as dynamic and challenging a professional life as could be found anywhere. Our teachers are innovative, experienced and deeply committed to their students' learning. The learning at UWCSEA extends throughout the College community as our staff are active and collaborative learners themselves. 

UWCSEA teachers benefit from exceptional professional learning offerings through our Centre for International Education as well as opportunities to participate in outside programmes.


Our core commitment to a holistic education has resulted in the provision of an extensive range of experiential and service-based programmes. Teachers are expected to contribute wholeheartedly to the provision of both curricular and extra-curricular programmes. All teachers run activities or service projects in addition to their teaching, and also support the College's range of sporting, dramatic and musical performances as well as the extensive expeditions programme, which sees over 200 expeditions outside of Singapore each academic year.

We welcome applications from educators who share our vision and wish to contribute to UWCSEA's unique learning community.

Thank you for your interest in employment with UWCSEA. The College offers staff a supportive, learning-focused work environment.
