Teacher of Chinese


Quarry Bay School  is seeking to appoint a full-time mainscale teacher (Mandarin) for the  start of the school year in August 2018. The position will be a two year  finite contract.

At Quarry Bay School it is expected that a teacher of Mandarin demonstrates the attributes of a general
classroom  teacher. These attributes include the capacity to maximise student  learning and development through the planning, preparation, teaching and  assessment of programmes which meet students’ individual learning needs  and achieve specific student outcomes. Teachers teach a range of  student abilities and classes and are accountable for the effective  delivery of their programmes. The teacher engages in critical reflection  in order to improve their knowledge and skills to better engage  students and improve their learning.

Mainscale teachers  (Mandarin) assume roles beyond the classroom in endeavouring to maximise  students’ learning. These roles include working collaboratively with  colleagues and other members of the school community, and communicating  with parents and care-givers.

The mainscale teacher (Mandarin)  contributes to the school goes beyond the classroom. They participate in  the development of the school policies and programmes and assist in the  implementation of school priorities. All teachers may be required to  undertake other duties in addition to their teaching duties.


Mainscale teachers  with primary classroom teaching experience and the capacity to speak  Mandarin are strongly encouraged to apply.
