This international school in Guangzhou is looking for a Primary Music Teacher to join them from August 2020. The Kindergarten campus was established in 2014 and is now a successful IB school and the Primary Section (which opened in 2016) is a candidate school for the IB PYP. The schools offer an inquiry-based, bi-lingual (Mandarin/English) education to local and international students.
Candidates must be a native-level English speaker with relevant teaching experience. Candidates will be required to register as an overseas teacher working in China and will need to meet the qualification requirements of a B.A / B.Ed, a PGCE/PGDE or educational qualifications at a similar or higher level. Experience working with children who are learning English as a second language will be a significant advantage as the majority of children in the school are EAL learners. Teachers are also supported by a bilingual teaching assistant as well as a Chinese helper. Experience working with the PYP is required. The schools value staff who are flexible and willing to support an inquiry-based, collaborative curriculum.
Successful applicants will be employed on a 2-year contract and the package includes a competitive salary based on experience and responsibilities, annual return flights, health insurance, accommodation allowance, end of contract gratuity/bonus, work permit and visa.
Guangzhou is the largest city and the capital city of the Guangdong province and the third largest city in China. The city is located on the Pearl River, about 120 km north-west of Hong Kong. Guangzhou has a humid subtropical climate and summers are hot and wet and winters are relatively mild and dry. The city has developed a cosmopolitan appearance with new shopping plazas, high rise buildings, a modern metro system and landscaped parks and road sides. It's a busy, lively city but parts of the cities have charm with restored churches, buildings and private residences. Having a major airport and being so close to Hong Kong opens up a world of travel opportunities from short weekend trips to longer treks around Asia in the holidays. Guangzhou really is the perfect place to base yourself in Asia!
