Vacancy – Head of School – Myanmar

Vacancy IB Principal/Head of School

Leading Asia Myanmar International School (LAMIS) is a GSE managed school in partnership with the LAMIS Board of Governors in Mandalay, Myanmar. An immediate vacancy exists for an experienced IB Principal.

The school is an IB candidate school with an exciting vision to bring the highest standards of education to Myanmar.


Leading Asia Myanmar International School (LAMIS) was first launched just over one year ago. The school has so far been operating online due to:

  1. The Covid-19 Pandemic
  2. A Military Coup that restricts many things, including the ability for foreign teachers to travel to the country

We do not expect the school to operate “face to face” until at least September 2022, pending a change in current restrictions.

The school is a PYP candidate school and is also pursuing DP candidacy in the near future.

GSE has just recently begun its management partnership with LAMIS. (September, 2021)

The Position:

We seek a strong leader with IB experience to lead the school, initially online.

Currently, the foreign teachers are working from multiple locations outside of the country.

Essential Qualities:

Strong IB Background and Experience

Location within the same or similar time zone (Asia Pacific) or the ability to work 100% within this time zone, online.

Experience in delivering high quality virtual and online teaching programs.

Experience working in a school start up and an understanding of the cultural and environmental context of Myanmar, at this time.

Immediate start.
