Teacher of Lower Primary (Art & ESL)

Dipont Education - Shanghai Office (Head Office)Shanghai

Dipont Education is seeking a primary teacher with specialisms in art and English/ESL to join an exciting new programme in the wonderful city of Xi'an, China.

Famously home to the amazing Terracotta Warriors and Horses and a vast array of historical sites, Xi'an is both an ancient city and bustling metropolis with a vibrant culture.

In addition to an art specialist, we are also appointing for PE and music specialists. There is opportunity for one successful appointee to undertake a lead teacher/coordinator position.

About the Role

Dipont is extending its network of schools and school programmes with a new primary programme, initially starting with a cohort of Grade 1 students.

In order to supplement and enrich the Chinese National Curriculum, Dipont has developed a bilingual learning model and curriculum with PE, art, music and English delivered by expatriate educators in English (with in-class support from bilingual Chinese teachers).

As our six and seven year olds will be learning in English for the first time, the subject teaching will be paired with ESL classes and all subject teaching will incorporate ESL learning strategies.

Development of English language skill is of course central to this, but our goal is to develop the full potential in every child through their journey of discovery across all subjects. To encourage their capacity for creative expression and in their emotional, social and physical development.

Learning and development will go beyond the classroom through a full range of co-curricular activities led by teaching staff. The programme will offer various sports, music and art activities, extra foreign language learning courses and other student clubs.
