Britannia International School
Britannia International School (BIS) is a young school that has opened with a vision to provide high quality education to the international community in Guangzhou. We are an affordable choice for families from 27 different countries. We operate as a non-profit member school of the larger Canadian International Educational Organisation (CIEO). As such we benefit from the security and guidance of an established organisation, whilst following our own vision to create an innovative school that champions STEAM and creativity.
Currently, our classes range from Nursery to UK year 9. September 2020 will see us open our year 10 IGCSE group, and we will continue to grow each year to offer A’ levels by 2022. Our teachers deliver the National Curriculum for England and Wales and follow Cambridge Assessment framework in Primary and Secondary. We are currently awaiting accreditation from Cambridge Assessment to begin offering IGCSE options from 2020. Alongside following the UK National Curriculum, we have a Chinese Language and Culture program and STEAM. Both STEAM and Chinese Language and Culture are delivered by specialist teachers to all students.
Britannia International School is located on Jinshazhou Island in the Baiyun District of Guangzhou. We are very fortunate to be a truly international school, as our students and teachers come from many different countries, our diversity is something we celebrate in regular events. The school campus includes a Music and Dance facility, Library, Art room, STEAM/idea lab, football pitch as well as open space areas for play and learning. All classrooms are fitted with interactive whiteboards and our teachers have a generous budget for resources.
For teachers, BIS offers an opportunity to join a small community where you will make difference. We are looking for forward thinking teachers who can bring ideas and enthusiasm to help our school grow.
Secondary English Teacher
The right candidate will hold a teaching qualification (QTS), have a passion for teaching & learning, excellent knowledge of the National Curriculum and Cambridge Assessment, is motivated to explore new approaches to teaching and learning, uphold our high standards of care, and be able to build relations with students.
Secondary English teachers at BIS are responsible for the planning, delivery, assessment and review of lessons, consistent with National Curriculum and Cambridge Assessment learning aims and outcomes. The candidate should be experienced with delivering English and English Literature to Key stage 3 and 4 students.
This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to develop the English dept at BIS. The role would be suitable for either a teacher who is looking to develop their career and wants to move into dept leader role, or an experienced teacher who has already developed imaginative and engaging English Language and Literature provision for Key Stage 3 and 4 students. The ability to contribute to the PSHE program would be desirable, but not a necessity.
