School Vision / Ethos: This is a co-educational secondary boarding school for students aged 14 to 18, situated in Chengdu, China. The school offers an international version of the British National Curriculum (IGCSE and A-Levels) with all classes delivered in English, and all graduates fluent in both English and Chinese. The highly academic and student-centred curriculum allows students to be fully prepared for entering university education. In addition, the approach ensures that students progress in a seamless manner where the skills of socialisation across cultural boundaries are standard. The school believes that the development of traditional intellectual competencies goes hand in hand with the development of character and life skills. In the boarding house, experienced supervisors care for students' life and growth. In school, students of the same age are grouped together with assigned tutors. The tutors supervise students in their everyday life and study; they also act as the key point of home-school communication and are responsible for students' academic, physical, and mental well-being.

Requirements:



* 5 years experience including previous management experience, plus the ability to teach Chemistry to A-level
* You will also be working alongside Chinese colleagues and administrators, so collaboration and cultural sensitivity are prerequisites.
* Many of the students are EAL students so this requires the relevant awareness and skills
* Previous international experience is an advantage
* Excellent verbal and written communication skills
* 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.
* At this school, they attract and retain a teaching team which is committed, loyal and collaborative, where professionalism counts.


Package:



* Monthly salary of RMB 25,000 - 30,000.
* Generous accommodation allowance for teacher and dependents
* Flight allowances for teacher and dependents
* Medical insurance
* Relocation allowance
* Free tuition for up to 2 dependents
