JOB DETAILS

School Vision / Ethos: The school in Chengdu is a High School and a Boarding School, founded in August 2011, specialising in IGCSE and A Level courses to highly motivated students ages between 14 and 19 years, mostly from China (though it is open to both Chinese and foreign students). It is still a very embryonic school. The school is the result of a successful partnership with the local authority. Although still very small, the school is developing well. The schools in this group are blazing an educational trail for the new China. All staff are therefore pioneers. You will also be working alongside Chinese colleagues and administrators, so collaboration and cultural sensitivity are prerequisites. It should also be noted that many of the students are EAL students so this requires the relevant awareness and skills from teachers. All Secondary teachers are expected to be Tutors, working within the life-skills and tutorial/mentoring programme, and delivering at least one ECA (extra-curricular activity) per week. As with all boarding schools, there are lessons on a Saturday morning which may involve some teachers. Expat weekends take place once a month as from the Friday lunchtime. All students leave the school, allowing the residential staff to have an extended free weekend. You may apply to be one of the resident house staff, joining the boarding community.


QUALIFICATIONS

Requirements: All learners are English as a Second Language, so the English department is run similar to ESL instead of focusing on English literature. Therefore, TEFOL or ILETS experience is preferred. Following the Edexcel syllabuses you will be responsible for the provision of Schemes of Work, Programmes of Study, assessments, etc in your subject area(s). They can consider single teachers, teaching couples and teachers with up to 2 dependents. Teachers must have at least 2 years post qualification experience. At this school, they attract and retain a teaching team which is committed, loyal and collaborative, where professionalism counts. They spend much time and effort helping new teachers settle in and providing a professional induction package. They train them to work within the curriculum framework they provide and to deal with the cultural implications of living and working in China.


SALARY AND BENEFITS

Package: Monthly RMB 19,000 - 30,000. Generous accommodation and flight allowances are provided for teacher and dependents plus medical insurance, relocation allowance and free tuition for up to 2 dependents
