Teachers of Early Years (Expat & Bilingual)
Due to the expansion of the school, RDFZ King’s College School Hangzhou has immediate and August 2019 roles for Teachers of Early Years to join its school community in Hangzhou, China.
About the roles
The kindergarten caters for students aged 3 to 6 and operates a bilingual curriculum based on the UK Early Years Foundation Stage integrated with elements of the Chinese curriculum. There is a shared pedagogical approach throughout the campus, enabling Chinese and expatriate students to benefit enormously from the cross-cultural exposure.
The kindergarten offers an open, fluid learning environment where lessons and activities are held both inside and outside of the classroom. Classes operate in pairs for each age group and are staffed by one Chinese teacher and one expatriate teacher with additional assistant support. This allows teachers to support each other in planning, delivery of the curricula and the development of each child’s English and Chinese language skills.
This exciting and challenging role commands a highly competitive salary and benefits package, including high-quality housing; flights for employee and dependents and medical insurance for employee and dependents. Full tuition support will be provided for any successful applicant with school-age children. The position will be offered on an initial three-year contract term with annual renewal thereafter.
Applications are invited from candidates with:
- Experience in primary education and a passion for the opportunities a bilingual program provides for children.
- The ability to work collaboratively and contribute to the development of an outstanding school.
- For an information pack and informal discussion please email Oliver Knapman, Recruitment Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Early application preferred.
