Aligned with the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection, we hold ourselves to a high standard of effective recruiting practices with specific attention to child protection. The Human Resources team ensures a thorough background check of all applicants including a police clearance report and reference checks.

At OSC, we are looking for dynamic individuals to join our learning community. We seek those who value an inquiry-based approach and see learning as going beyond the walls of the classroom. Those who value a holistic approach to learning would fit well into our community. IB experience is a benefit, but a great teacher is the overall goal and previous experience in living overseas is an advantage. At least 2 years of teaching experience is required.


Our curriculum is IB throughout and our high school is college preparatory.

OSC is proud to be the only IB World School in Sri Lanka. We are authorised by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IB), and fully accredited by the Council of International Schools, UK (CIS) and Middle State Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA). OSC is a full member of the South Asian Inter-School Association (SAISA) and Near East South Asia Council of Overseas Schools (NESA).

Professional development

At OSC, we believe an exemplary school is a dynamic learning environment for all its educators and students. We further believe that good teaching makes the difference in student learning and that the best teachers continually strive to grow in their teaching practice through the process of reflection and collaboration with their colleagues. To this end, OSC dedicates 2% of its annual budget to the ongoing professional development of its staff.

The Overseas School of Colombo (OSC) has been alerted to a potential scam that targets job seekers applying to international schools. The scammers ask candidates seeking overseas employment to send money for various fees (application fees, tickets, recruitment fees etc…) in order to process the application. OSC does not request money for applying to the school, nor do we ask for personal information such as bank account numbers. Please be extremely cautious if you receive a communication that appears to be from The Overseas School of Colombo in which you are asked for money and/or personal information. Thank you!
