Working at International School Delft

International School Delft is a young and dynamic state-subsidised international school serving the community in the Delft/The Hague region. The Primary school was successfully established in 2014 and is conveniently located on the Technical University campus in Delft. Following a growing demand for international secondary education, our Secondary school was launched in 2019. With this extension, International School Delft has entered a new phase in its journey to become a leading – 4 to 18 year – International Baccalaureate world school, in the vibrant western part of the Netherlands. Located in Delft, the school has a partnership with the TU and fosters a strong commitment to design and technology in the curriculum. This focus on technology and design will be reflected in the state-of-the-art, purpose-built school building that will be realised in the coming years.

We are currently building a team of teachers and leaders who have a passion to commit themselves to our exciting journey and help us further develop the school. In this spirit, we are seeking to recruit dedicated educators who will contribute to the academic growth of our students into problem solvers and innovators.

We offer our staff the opportunity to shape the school into becoming one of only three IB World schools in the Netherlands to offer the full range of IB programmes. International School Delft provides its staff with excellent opportunities for professional career development. We are committed to investing in the development of our staff through continuous schooling and training.
