UWC South East Asia

Head of Dover Campus

This is a rare opportunity for a visionary leader to join one of the most highly regarded international schools in the world. 

A member of the United World Colleges (UWC) movement, UWC South East Asia (UWCSEA) is known for its holistic, mission-driven and values-based education programme. Across two campuses in Singapore - Dover and East - the College educates 5,609 students aged 4 to 18 years, making it one of the largest international schools globally. Both campuses are overseen by the College President, under a single  Board of Governors.

The College now seeks a visionary individual to succeed Elizabeth Bray as the Head of Dover Campus when she departs in July 2022. This is a significant and highly visible role in a vibrant and dynamic community. Opened in 1971, the Dover Campus now has 3,020 students from 83 countries, speaking 67 different languages, including 160 boarders and 54 student scholars in the on-campus residential boarding community. 

Reporting to the College President and working closely with the Head of East Campus and other key stakeholders, the successful candidate will inspire and motivate an exceptional team, cultivating a learning environment that promotes the five elements of UWCSEA’s holistic learning programme through the College’s bespoke concept-based K-12 curriculum. He or she will work collaboratively to develop and implement College Strategy while maintaining a focus on the future, including developing inclusive education pathways. 

The ideal candidate for this position will be an accomplished and inspirational leader with significant experience gained in international settings. An authentic leader with a deep commitment to the UWC mission, they must possess the intercultural sensitivity and adaptability to connect with UWCSEA’s wide range of stakeholders, both internally and externally, while being a champion for the College’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
