This private school in Beijing is seeking an Art and Art History Teacher who can start a new programme from scratch and start it in a school where creative learning is a core value. The position is to start in August 2017.
International Leadership Academy (ILA) was founded by Asia International School Limited (AISL) in 2015. AISL has been operating international schools in Asia since 1997 when it formed Harrow International Management Services (HIMS) in cooperation with Harrow School UK and established Harrow International School Bangkok. Since then, AISL has established Harrow International Schools in Beijing, Hong Kong, and Shanghai – a group of schools that takes pride in delivering a traditional British education to achieve their shared vision of ‘Leadership for a Better World.’
Building on these achievements, AISL set out to satisfy a need for high quality international education in China which would both prepare students for success in the wider world while maintaining the fundamental elements of Chinese culture and wisdom. AISL drew upon the deep experience with its group of Harrow International Schools to develop the International Leadership Academy schools. Education at ILA schools draws on elements of both British and Chinese curricula, and is orientated towards personal responsibility for learning, individual mentoring, university and career planning, and Wisdom for Life.
Six ways of learning - sensory, emotional, rational, creative, moral and practical -are used inside and outside the classroom to help students grow in Wisdom for Life. Students are asked to engage with knowledge and experience, using both to benefit others and oneself. Learning and teaching at ILA Beijing are designed to develop innovative, principled, compassionate, reasonable, sensitive, effective and wise leaders.
Through studying for IGCSEs, and A-Levels and possibly some AP courses, students develop the knowledge and skills and, gain the qualifications, to enter the universities which best suit their further education and career aspirations. Learning for these students is based on ‘Understanding by Design’ principles.
