This company would want all of their teachers not only to be passionate about their subject but also to be willing to contribute to the pastoral and co-curricular program within the school.

A full-time time teacher would be expected to teach no more than 60% of a timetable (22 out of 36 periods) spread over a 6 day cycle (this does not include weekends). Class sizes at IB range from c6-16 and at IGCSE from c12-24.

The school is fully committed to providing a range of professional development opportunities for all staff whether internally through our Professional Learning Centre or through external courses for which there is an exceptionally generous budget.

There is a very full co-curricular program of over 100 different activities which we ask all staff to contribute to a couple of times a week. Ideally this would be any activity that the teacher themselves is interested in.

The school is predominantly a boarding school although the vast majority of students leave school on Friday afternoon and return on Monday morning. We ask each teacher to do one evening duty a week which can be supervising students in the library or in their boarding houses.

Almost all staff are also tutors who would see a group of 8-10 students twice a week. Tutors are responsible for overseeing the welfare of students as well as their academic progress.

Stipend positions of responsibility: Heads of Department, Housemasters/mistresses and other management positions will have additional responsibilities, lower timetable requirements and receive stipends. Such modifications will be summarized in a supplemental document.

Essential Requirements:
1. Bachelor's degree in related field required (advanced degree(s) preferred);
2. Valid teaching certification;
3. Expertise in and a passion for your subject and a genuine interest in working with teenagers;
4. Excellent communication skills, the ability to take the initiative and the flexibility to deal with change.
5. Enthusiasm, energy, creativity and the willingness to take risks.

Preferred but not essential Requirements
1. Experience of working in an International School;
2. Experience of working in a residential setting (School, camp, International travel supervision);
3. Experience with second language learners;
4. Bi-lingual ability (English and Mandarin Chinese)

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. References, background checks and criminal record checks will be required.

Additional Benefits:
- Visa subsidies
- Air ticket allowance
- World-wide Medical Insurance
- Housing allowance
- Relocation allowance
- Substantial renewal bonuses
- Salary: RMB 25,000 - RMB 33,000
