Are you an inspirational teacher looking to join a well-established, supportive team in a expanding school? The British International School Shanghai, Puxi Campus is looking for exceptional classroom teachers to join our Secondary team. We welcome applications from outstanding, self-motivated and reflective professionals. We’re looking for the right blend of energy and experience, and a passion for teaching that embraces change and innovation.
As a qualified teacher you will be a fluent English speaker, familiar with the UK curriculum and confident teaching Secondary age students. Experience with IGCSE and the IB Diploma is helpful but not essential. You will be comfortable teaching students of all abilities across the complete secondary age range. You will be an excellent communicator and confident with technology: someone who gets on well with colleagues, students and parents. Amongst other things, you’ll be well organised, have a good sense of humour and will want to participate fully in the extra-curricular aspects of school life as well as the classroom.
Our Secondary school learners are international students with a wide range of backgrounds. You’ll be responsible for all aspects of teaching and learning, for encouraging a culture of inspiration, enjoyment and success. Music is strong here, and our partnership with Juilliard ensures that students enjoy a rich learning experience. There are concert and rock bands, symphony orchestras and choirs: students perform regularly through events at the school, around the city and in the wider Asia region. Our highly equipped Music Technology suites allow pupils to explore and develop their own skills and creativity.
In addition to being highly successful in its own right, the British International School Shanghai, Puxi is a member of the Nord Anglia Education family of Premium International Schools. This means you’ll be joining an international team in which thoughts and ideas are shared around the globe as we strive to make our schools the very best in the world. You will have the security and opportunities that come from being part of a high quality global organisation dedicated to education and professional development.
In return for your passion to deliver the highest quality education you will enjoy a more than competitive salary, accommodation provided by us, an annual flight allowance, health insurance and places in the school for your children. You’ll have the opportunity to live in and work in one of Asia’s largest, most spectacular and most vibrant cities.
Here at the British International School Shanghai Puxi, we are a close knit team who are proud of our school and community. We educate over 1500 young people of more than 50 nationalities, preparing them for futures as global citizens in the years ahead. If you’d like to be a part of our on-going success, please get in touch: we’d love to hear from you.
