As a qualified teacher you will be a fluent English speaker, familiar with the UK curriculum and confident working with students from diverse cultural and language backgrounds. You’ll have a strong background in working with students who need individual support to access the mainstream curriculum fully, and you’ll have a passion to make sure they achieve all they are capable of. You’ll be able to inspire students to believe that they can and will succeed. You will be comfortable working with children and students of all ages, and, although you may currently be a primary or secondary specialist, you’ll be keen to broaden your experience to embrace the complete 2-18 school range. You will be an excellent communicator and confident with technology: someone who gets on well with colleagues, students and parents. Liaising with parents will be a particularly important part of the role. Amongst other things, you’ll be well organised, have a good sense of humour and will be great at getting the best out of other people.
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.
