Date posted:
Start date: August 2018

The opportunity

With English as the main medium of instruction,  language acquisition and consolidation will be central to the school's success and two of our students' key learning needs. This is an exciting opportunity for a committed EAL teacher to take their career forward at an innovative co-educational day and boarding school in Shenzhen. 

MCIS will be admitting students with differing prior experience of English. During our opening year, the successful candidate will need to be fully committed to assessing the needs of all students, establishing the EAL support list and initiating measures to enable colleagues to meet the language needs of all students. 

A position of responsibility may be available to a suitably qualified person. 

Merchiston Castle International School

MCIS will offer an innovative British independent school curriculum for international students aged 5 – 18, starting in Key Stage 1 and culminating in IGCSE and GCE A Level. The campus, inspired by the ethos of Merchiston Castle, Edinburgh, is designed to create the kind of innovative learning spaces in which an effective 21st century education can take place.
