Child Protection Policy and Safe Recruitment Practice
ISB actively promotes and defends the rights of the child to physical and psychological well-being, as defined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. In-line with the school’s “Child Protection Policy”, ISB implements safe recruitment procedures to ensure that all members of the teaching and non-teaching staff at the school, including part-time staff, cover staff, and student activities instructors, such as musicians and sports coaches, are subject to police clearance and/or criminal background checks.
References and background checks are conducted on all successful applicants.
Teacher applicants must hold a state or nationally recognized classroom teacher license/certification (TEFL, CELTA and similar qualifications will not be accepted in lieu).
Candidates Beware of Recruiting Scams
International School Basel (ISB) will never ask or require candidates to send money for application fees, interview fees, visas, plane tickets or other costs associated with recruitment. Candidates who have applied for a position at ISB will not be asked for information related to bank accounts or other private information. If you have been asked by someone you think may be representing ISB or another international school to send money to cover such costs, you may be the target of an elaborate scam. Several good international schools have recently had their web sites cloned, and candidates have been asked to send large amounts of money. All candidates are urged to be diligent in investigating potential schools during the recruiting process and prior to signing a contract. Use extreme caution if you have been asked for money or private information. Please read the guidelines about communications you can expect from International School Basel (ISB) in regards to fees and invoices.
