SEK Dublin is seeking a professional and caring person to act as weekend Boarding Educator for our new boarding house, from Friday afternoon to Monday morning.
You will be enthusiastic and knowledgeable about pastoral care and take responsibility for the running and development of our boarding programme. The boarding house is co-ed and designed for 10 students. This is a residential post, as such, the post holder will need to live in the boarding house during the weekend.

SEK Dublin is an international day and boarding school 35 minutes south of Dublin in the town of Greystones. Children begin at 11 and progress through secondary up to 18 years of age. Students move on to study at leading universities in Ireland and around the world. Our cohort is made up of a mixture of Irish and International day students from families living in the immediate and Greater Dublin areas, as well as international boarding students who reside in our on campus boarding house or with local host families.
We have long history of educational innovation, as part of a wider group we have schools in mainland Europe and the Middle East, including a tall ship in the Mediterranean, which acts as a base to study sailing and marine conservation as well as our own university. Indeed, for over 130 years we have been preparing students for their future. As a fully independent school we have the freedom to offer an alternative to the traditional state exams.
