Why work for LSC?

The LSC is a place where staff members are encouraged to develop and grow in a supportive and team-oriented environment. Creativity and transparency are both significant features of the LSC’s organizational culture and as a result the staff room has quite a comfortable atmosphere. In addition, our teaching staff come from a variety of backgrounds including South Africa, Iran, Lebanon, the United States of America, England and Turkey to name a few. Having such a diverse group of staff (administrative and academic) creates a unique and interesting work environment whereby two common goals bring us together; excellence in Education and enjoying the journey.
