Science Curriculum Developer
Dipont Education is seeking a Science Curriculum Developer to join a team dedicated to shaping, testing and delivering unique, cutting edge curriculum for Grade 1-9 students in the Dipont Schools Program across China.

Recent changes to education policy in China have made it mandatory for all schools to integrate Chinese National Curriculum (CNC) standards into their teaching and learning practices. An example of this is the zhongkao, what is effectively a senior high school entrance exam, that all students must take in Grade 9 of their studies.
To keep pace with this policy change, Dipont Education has formed a department dedicated to creating integrated curriculum standards and resources informed by best practices in bilingual education. This is a team of Chinese and expat education professionals, working together to shape and steer this vital initiative.
