Early Years Teacher
Contract Term: 2 Years
Sutton Valence School, a leading English co-educational independent day and boarding school, in association with Hopeland International Kindergarten Group, a successful, Chinese-owned independent education provider, opened this new co-educational, dual curriculum Preparatory School for 7-12 year-olds in Tianjin, China's sixth largest city, in September 2017.
The School is highly successful and expanding rapidly. It now requires full time, English-speaking Early Year teachers, to work in this first-class environment. The School offers a dual curriculum (English and Chinese) with subjects taught in both languages and with the pupils integrated for many activities and community events.
The School aims to inspire its students, and enhance their education and cultural understanding. We want to prepare them for the opportunities available in a highly connected world. This global outlook is expressed in the ethos of the four-journeys, which is promoted by Sutton Valance school.
HIKSVS provides expertise, resources and a rigorous set of academic standards as laid out by Sutton Valence School in Kent, UK. Our aim is also to provide further opportunities for professional development and enhancement programmes for our staff.

HIKSVS International School is a very exciting and unique place to work. The vision for the School is distinctive and compelling, offering the Sutton Valence ethos of 'Four Journeys' and blending the very best of educational practice from western and eastern traditions.
If you work for HIKSVS International School, you will have the opportunity to live in a beautiful city, work in a school located near the most wonderful lake and parkland, develop your professional practice through this blend of educational traditions, and most importantly, you will be able to play a key role in creating and developing a leading educational project in China. You will be a part of the first stand-alone Preparatory or Primary School partnership by a Chinese school with a leading English public school.
We are committed to the most exciting development of teaching and learning, developing a dual curriculum in which international and domestic Chinese pupils can be taught separately for some subjects but are integrated for others. We promote international understanding and global citizenship values.
The school is seeking dynamic, well-qualified, committed and inspiring Early years teachers, to commence in post in Jan/ Feb 2020.
