We really value our teachers and we recruit the best. To help us do this, we offer an excellent package of international benefits including annual return flights, medical insurance, housing and a salary scale matched to the scale in King’s College School, Wimbledon.
From August 2020, the school wishes to appoint two well-qualified Mandarin teachers to set up and run the Mandarin curriculum across Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. They will also play an active role in the co-curricular and extra-curricular activities from Early Years and upwards.
Mandarin is a fun, exciting and challenging language which is immersed in the wonderful culture and history of China. Mandarin will be a compulsory part of the curriculum from reception upwards and will become an IGCSE option for Year 7 in the future. Each week, reception will receive one 40-minute lesson of Mandarin, which increases to two 40-minute periods from Year 1 upwards. The teachers will work together to provide differentiated activities for beginners to highly attaining students as we have a variety of backgrounds.
The setting-up environment has a large number of opportunities for the right candidate as you will be involved with designing and implementing a curriculum, ordering the resources, designing house and school events, and having an input into co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
If you value colleagues who will support you, are excited by a start-up environment in which we all work hard for each other and have a nurturing approach to education, we would welcome you to apply for a position with us.
