Lower Primary Teacher


Required: January 2017
Location: Guangzhou, Southern China
Curriculum: IB PYP, MYP and DP Curriculum
Experience: Minimum 3+ years of experience, IB experience preferred but not essential.
Sponsorship: Single teachers, Married couples (with non-teaching spouses), full tuition for up to two dependent children.
Contract: 2.5 - 3 years renewable

School ethos: The stunning lakeside backdrop to this school is a fitting milieu to the quiet confidence and self-assurance of a school that deserves the excellent reputation it has accrued amongst expatriate families in Guangzhou. One of the oldest international schools in China, (1997) the school has two campuses . The largest national group is Koreans comprising around 38% of students followed by Japanese, French and German student groups.

Located approximately 20-30 minutes from the CBD, this school is like stepping into a national park! With the beautiful Golden Lake on one side and green, forested hillsides on the other, this is one of the most idyllic campuses you will ever encounter.

Guangzhou is a wonderful southern city in China and located close enough to Hong Kong to easily visit on weekends. Known as a well planned "Green" city - it has regularly been voted China's most liveable city.

Requirements: Due to a staff illness the school require a teacher who can teach Primary EAL classes to Year 1 from January and then take on a Primary Year 2 classroom role from August 2017. The school prefers to hire teachers from the following native English speaking countries: Canada, America, Britain, Australia and New Zealand and ideally applicants will have IB experience although this is not a prerequisite. They are drawn to teachers who are flexible, enthusiastic and confident. Teachers are expected to full contribute to the life of the school and therefore should be the type of person who settles easily into a new living environment and is able to concentrate wholly on their professional responsibilities.

Package: The salary and benefits package is excellent, including free tuition for two children, furnished accommodation, medical insurance and flights at the beginning and end of contract for teacher and dependents, and a gratuity at the end of contract.
