This well-established and well-respected British school in the heart of the embassy district of Sanlitun, Beijing, is looking for an outstanding UK experienced Early Years Pre-Nursery(under 2's) Teacher for ASAP. They offer the best of the British National Curriculum to a diverse body of students between the ages of 1 and 11 years of age (after students finish Year 6, they transition to Secondary School at the sister school in Shunyi). Class sizes are small and facilities are very good with an impressive brand new Early Years campus having recently opened.

All interested applicants must have a minimum of a recognised academic background with British degrees preferred and higher degrees desirable. They should also have a recognised teaching qualification, including QTS and up-to-date CRB checks, clear evidence of a commitment to lifelong learning, and a minimum of two years teaching experience in good independent/UK maintained schools and/or recognised international schools. Candidiates must show flexibility to participate in the wider responsibilities of being a class teacher - extra-curricular education, school visits, family events etc - and the ability to work effectively both as a team player and an individual.

The school provide a competitive salary, accommodation, an annual flight allowance, subsidised healthcare and tuition for dependent children plus the opportunity to live in and work in China’s capital city; a dynamic and ever changing environment.

This is an exciting opportunity both professionally and personally not only to add a solid contribution to your developing resume but to be able to explore a culturally and historically stunning part of the world. Interested applicants should contact their Edvectus advisor without hesitation and be prepared to demonstrate attributes that will match you against an overseas teaching opportunity which will demand an adjustment of your expectations and challenge your cultural astuteness.

Regional Info:
Beijing is the capital city of China and located in the north-eastern part of China. China is the 4th largest country after Russia, Canada and the United States. It is located in Eastern Asia, bordering the East China Sea, Korea Bay, Yellow Sea, and South China Sea, between North Korea and Vietnam. The city has a varied climate with hot, humid summers and temperatures in the mid-high 20s/low 30s and cold, windy winters with temperatures down to about 3-4 degrees. There is pollution - much of it from surrounding cities and provinces though US$17 billion was spent cleaning up the city's air prior to the 2008 Olympics. Admittedly some of the measures were temporary but China has committed to reducing the amount of coal burned by 2.6 million tonnes by 2017 and since 2012 has been converting coal power stations to natural gas power station. The city and surrounds are dripping in culture and there are too many attractions to mention but many, many well-known such as the Forbidden City, The Temple of Heaven, Confucius Temple, Beijing Zoo and many other museums, galleries, nature reserves, sporting venues and world heritage sites such as the Great Wall of China. There are of course plenty of other ways to spend your time in Beijing with its flourishing nightlife - courtesy of the city's many bars and clubs - local and national cuisine to be sampled in restaurants and from street food stalls and, of course, shopping to be done. Beijing is well connected by road, rail and air and its Beijing Capital international Airport is the 2nd busiest in the world.
