About the Teacher of Art 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. To foster bilingualism as students progress, both Chinese and English-speaking teachers deliver content. 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. This paired bilingual teaching model is instrumental in ensuring high-quality educational delivery, encouraging students to explore, discover, and excel.
Students entering the international school follow the English 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 students’ personal, social, and physical growth and wellbeing, so they are able to 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 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 K-12 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, on firstname.lastname@example.org
