Applications are invited from enthusiastic, qualified and experienced teachers. A minimum of two years’ recent experience of teaching Chinese to GCSE/IGCSE and either A level or the IB Diploma programme is essential.
The Chinese Department functions within a very vibrant and creative MFL Department at BIS, where French and Spanish are also offered to students. Collaboration and cooperation amongst students and staff are key to its success. The teaching of Chinese takes place in purpose built classrooms which were fully renovated recently to include the very latest technology. Lessons are lively and communicative and teachers are able to use a significant amount of the target language in lessons. Although the Chinese department operates as a small team, it does so in line with other Modern Foreign Languages in the school, under the direction of the Head of MFL. Students tend to opt for a language in Primary and carry on with the language into Secondary, with options to take IGCSE and IBDP examinations.
