Head of Modern Foreign Languages

  • Period: Full Time
  • Contract: Fixed Term
  • Closing date for applications: 15 January 2014

As a qualified teacher you will be familiar with the UK curriculum and confident teaching secondary age students.  You will be an excellent communicator, who gets on well with colleagues, students, parents, technology and change.  Amongst other things, you will be well organised, have a good sense of humour and want to develop opportunities for students in and out of the classroom, providing opportunities for participation and the promotion of excellence.  The current composition of our languages department is such that the successful candidate is likely to be a French teacher, although the ability to offer more than one language is always an advantage.

Teaching Modern Languages is an exciting opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of students. Our secondary school has 650 students, with a wide range of backgrounds, from around the world. You will be responsible for all aspects of teaching and learning, managing and leading a team of colleagues as well as encouraging a culture of inspiration, enjoyment and success.

In addition to being highly successful in its own right, the British International School Shanghai, Puxi is a member of the Nord Anglia Education family of Premium International Schools. This means you’ll be joining an international team in which thoughts and ideas are shared around the globe as we strive to make our schools the very best in the world. You will have the security and opportunities that come from being part of a high quality global organisation dedicated to education and professional development.

In return for your passion to deliver the highest quality education you will enjoy a more than competitive salary, accommodation provided by us, an annual flight allowance, health insurance and places in the school for your children. You’ll have the opportunity to live in and work in one of Asia’s largest, most spectacular and most vibrant cities.

Here at the British International School Shanghai Puxi, we are a close knit team who are proud of our school and community. We educate 1450 young people of more than 50 nationalities, preparing them for futures as global citizens in the years ahead. If you’d like to be a part of our on-going success, please get in touch: we’d love to hear from you.
