To: Prospective Teachers

From: Dr. Susan R. Groesbeck, Head of School

Thank you for expressing your interest in working at the ABA.

As a leading IB World School, and recognizing that it is people who make organisations successful, I aim to recruit and retain the very best teachers and staff. In determining the suitability of candidates for a position at ABA, I will carefully consider the following:

  1. Qualifications, skills and experience relevant to the position
  2. Alignment with the school’s guiding statements
  3. Personal profile and character
  4. Understanding of cultural context in Oman
  5. Confidential recommendations (not testimonials)

You are encouraged to thoroughly read the information found on our school's web site to better understand the school.

Please note that ABA is committed to child-safe recruitment practices and fully endorses the policy and practices recommended by the International Task Force on Child Protection and within the context of Omani law.

All possible steps will be taken to ensure that thorough background checks, child protection interview questions and best practice procedures are implemented throughout the recruiting season including follow up reference checks and personal contact with referees. ABA will also cross reference potential new hires with relevant official sex offender databases where possible including, but not limited to, home of record and most recent country of employment.
