Head of Music
Due to the opening of new classes across all grade levels, RDFZ King’s College School Hangzhou is seeking a Head of Music to join its school community in Hangzhou, China for August 2019.
About the role
This is a whole school role working across the bilingual and international elementary, and junior high school sections.
In the bilingual section, students undertake the Chinese National Curriculum delivered via modern, international pedagogy with content delivered by Chinese and English-speaking teachers to foster bilingualism as students progress. The aim is to supplement the national curriculum and to meet the needs of each child by giving a breadth of educational experience and academic depth in all areas of studies from core subjects to co-curricular activities. This paired bilingual teaching model is instrumental in ensuring high quality educational delivery, encouraging students to explore, discover, and excel.
International students entering the international school follow the UK National Curriculum along with Mandarin to encourage cross-cultural themes and experiences. The curriculum instills the breadth and depth to prepare for success at iGCSE and A-level. It also strives to support their personal, social, and physical growth and wellbeing, so students enter the international community with confidence.
This exciting and challenging role commands a highly competitive salary and benefits packages, 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.
