Lead KG Teacher
Start Date: August 2019
Location: Beijing, China
Region: Far East and South East Asia
Curriculum: Inquiry-based
Experience: 2+ years
Salary: Teaching salaries are from 23,000RMB - 31000RMB per month (stipend for Lead Teacher role)
Sponsorship: Single or Married with tuition for 2 dependent children
Contract: 2 years renewable

School Overview: This school group aims to provide a future-oriented education for the children of Chinese and expatriate families living in Beijing. Founded on a passion to challenge and empower young people to live fulfilling and productive lives, the group opened its first international school in 2005 which has provided the bedrock to extend its services to a wider community with the construction of a network of Kindergartens, mainly for Chinese children.

Campus Overview: This role is based at the beautiful Courtyard Kindergarten campus which juxtaposes sweeping modern lines with the traditional elegance of an original courtyard palace dating from the early Qing dynasty. The form of the campus and the philosophy of the educational program are rooted in the efficacy of harmonious relationships: between architecture and nature; old and new; youth and experience; tradition and future; China and the world. The KG uses an inquiry-based approach called "Investigative Play". Using this approach allows teachers to guide the child's play activities, assess the learning that is taking place, and move the child's learning from one level to the next.

Location Overview: Live and work in China's bustling capital city where 3 millennia of history lives side by side with ground-breaking, modern architecture. Explore the famous Forbidden City, a centuries old imperial palace, wander around the cultural delights of Tiananmen Square or walk along part of the 5,500 mile-long Great Wall of China- a structure so large that it can be seen from space. If history isn't your thing, then there is a thriving expatriate community and a wealth of cultural events covering everything from music to theatre. If you're a night owl then the city's large number of varied bars and nightclubs will keep you entertained until the small hours.
