About teaching at SUIS
We’ll expect you to set and maintain high expectations for our students, to design lessons that engage students and promote active learning, and to create a learning culture where students develop a growth mindset. An observer of your classroom environment will see evidence of respect, students who are risk takers and students who learn through questioning and discussion.
You are open-minded and tolerant. You are able to adapt quickly to change, to our school’s culture and to a fast-paced international environment. You will possess a university degree, a recognized teaching qualification and considerable teaching experience. Committed and creative, you will be reflective of your own teaching and student progress and outcomes, seeking out and implementing new ideas and innovative methods to raise students’ levels of achievement.
Eager to collaborate, to share your experiences and listen to others, you use your expertise to build strong relationships with parents, students and colleagues.
About the role
In our Primary and Middle School, we offer our students an established but innovative ‘East Meets West’ education. This means that although our ‘East Meets West’ curriculum is in place, we are always innovating and improving it to keep pace with ongoing changes to China’s education system and the skills needed by our students to be successful in this 21st Century. This in turn means that we need our Primary and Middle School teachers to not only deliver our curriculum, but to be reflective, collaborative and innovative.
In our High School, we offer the IGCSE and A Level curricula. As our students are English Language Learners, our High School teachers need to ‘wear two hats’. That is, not only do we require our high school teachers to be experts in their respective disciplines, but also to be teachers of the English language, as each discipline will have its own vocabulary and unique demands on students’ abilities.
With 13 campuses across China, you become part of a big family when you join Shanghai United International School. Within our family, there will be many opportunities for you to learn, to grow, to experience Chinese culture, and to work with colleagues from all over the world. You also become an integral part of our journey in developing a dynamic, innovative, research-based ‘East Meet West’ international education that serves to prepare our students for future success. Finally, we offer unique career and development opportunities that come with being part of a large education group.
You may expect three stages of interview.
At SUIS we are committed to providing a world class, safe, happy environment in which children and young people are able to thrive and learn. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our students irrespective of race, ability, religion, gender or culture.
All teachers and staff at SUIS having regular unsupervised contact with children are subject to appropriate national and international vetting procedures including satisfactory criminal record checks from your country of residence/birth. In addition, we will follow up with references from previous employers to determine suitability of employment.
