Job Description

Start Date to be negotiated but no later than May 2020 (earlier preferable)

PDO School is looking for an inspirational Music Teacher. The right candidate will have the ability to inspire and motivate students with a diverse range of musical talent. The successful candidate will be a highly committed team player with drive energy and passion to develop this forward thinking school.
Pupils throughout the school currently play recorder, clarinet, keyboard, guitar and flute. There is also a choir and an orchestra; both are very popular with students and parents.
The school is very well resourced and children are enthusiastic about the subject. We are now looking for someone to work as part of the music team to take the school to the next level of development.

The Curriculum

PDO School sets out to provide a suitable education to enable children to reach and maintain the highest standard possible. The intention is that children will fit in well to any educational setting when they transfer.

PDO School is a Shell affiliated school teaching the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC). Language and Mathematics are taught using the National Curriculum for England. ISA tests are used to monitor achievement in these subjects.

The pupil-teacher ratio is lower than average so that children whose first language is different from the language of instruction and those with specific educational needs can receive extra support. The low ratio also takes into account the fact that children may enter and leave the school during the academic year and may miss periods of schooling when parents have, for operational reasons, to take holidays in term time. Few children in Shell and Shell affiliated schools spend more than four years in the same location.

Everyone is expected to contribute fully to the life of the school and the wider expatriate community, and there are many opportunities to do so.

Parents are supportive and very interested and involved in their children’s education. Consultation evenings and curriculum events form part of the normal school activities, as do staff meetings and other school-based activities.


PDO School offers a competitive salary and benefits. More details about the package will be given at the interview. The terms, holidays and hours of work at PDO School are similar to those in the UK.

Social life in locations such as Muscat is usually varied and rewarding, although certain activities are subject to local restrictions concerning alcohol and dress. Many people enjoy the good sporting facilities that are offered and take part in community events.

Offers of employment are conditional upon a satisfactory police/background check, medical and visa approval. All offers of employment are subject to visa requirements and local rules and Oman labour laws.

The Appointment Process

Your application form and CV will be assessed to ensure that you meet the criteria within the person specification. A short list of candidates is then drawn up from these applications.
If you are shortlisted you will then be interviewed by telephone or video link. Candidates on the short list will be then interviewed by PDO School.
