Guidance Counsellor - Secondary School
Required: August 2018
Location: Beijing
Curriculum: US Progressive/Inquiry/Project Based/Constructivist with a focus on the Common Core Standards
Experience: 2+ years post qualification experience;
Sponsorship: Single teachers, teaching couples, married teachers with or without dependents
Salary: 225,000rmb to 350,000rmb per annum plus benefits, based on experience

School Ethos/Vision: This is an international school based on the campus of a prestigious Beijing university and is a grade 1-12 school providing a unique educational experience for the approximately 423 members of the student body. The school utilizes a progressive/inquiry based, North American approach to instruction coupled with a decidedly Eastern influence. It is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and is committed to nurturing and challenging students to prepare them to contribute to an increasingly globalised world.

Location Overview: Beijing is a bustling city with more than 13 million people on an area of 16,800 sq. km - the size of Belgium. The Beijing Municipality is flat and has a very orderly design - north, south, east and west circumnavigated by six concentric ring roads. The Beijing seasons are clearly marked by changes in weather and temperatures, and surprising splashes of colours. Beijing today is a city of vast contrasts - the new intermingles with the old, and the whole city is developing rapidly. Being a proud member of the WTO and successful host for the 29th Olympics Games, Beijing has set an even greater pace of development and change. Beijing is also home to a sizeable expatriate population comprising members from the business community, NGOs, embassies and foreign students.

Requirements: You should be a qualified teacher with a minimum of 2 years post qualifying experience in order to teach in Beijing. US or Canadian curriculum experience is highly desirable. You should have an inquiry based approach to your teaching and an ability to work well within a variety of cultures. Teachers must be progressive educators who understand that inquiry is the basis of education at this school as is a strong community. You need to be adaptable and flexible and have a positive approach to life!

Package: Salary starting at 225,000rmb per annum depending on qualifications and experience; flights, accommodation allowance, settling allowance, medical cover, annual PD budget and tuition for up to 2 dependants.
