Teacher of Elementary
RDFZ King’s College School Hangzhou is seeking Teacher of Elementary for their bilingual section. The successful candidate will join the school community in Hangzhou, China in August 2020.
RDFZ King’s College School Hangzhou is one of two new school development projects in China initiated through partnership between Dipont Education, and the prestigious King’s College School, Wimbledon. A third partner in Hangzhou is The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China (RDFZ), one of China’s leading schools.
About the role
In Grades 1-6, the curriculum consists of Chinese, English, mathematics, basic science, music, art, moral and ethical education and physical education. In addition, pupils study a school-designed humanities programme of practical activities that take place within the school campus. English instruction is used throughout to encourage bilingual skills as pupils progress through the school.
Classes are shared between a Chinese and an English speaker, with Chinese-speaking assistants supporting pupils in language learning. This approach creates a genuinely bilingual learning environment. The international teacher teaches English, mathematics and science (with some co-teaching) while the Chinese teacher teaches Chinese and humanities subjects, and shares some of the mathematics teaching.
Project-based learning supports independent and cooperative learning, and there is emphasis on exploration, investigation and creative thinking.
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 is provided for any successful applicant with school-age children. The position is 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.
