Region: Far East and South East Asia
Experience: 2 years (more for management roles)
Salary: from 22,000 - 33,000 RMB per month

School Vision / Ethos: Established in 2005, this is a dynamic, very well known and highly respected high performing co-educational independent school catering for 1350 expatriate children aged 2-18 from forty five different countries across six continents. The school comprises three schools, each with its own Head teacher: Early Years; Junior School; and Senior School. They offer the English National curriculum in KS3, International GCSEs in KS4 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma in KS5.

They are situated in the capital city of the second largest and fastest-growing economy in the world, 45 minutes from both the Great Wall and Tiananmen Square.

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. Beijing is also home to a sizeable expatriate population and you will find countless opportunities for a great social life - there is something for everyone here and western amenities are plentiful.

The post will involve leading and teaching Music across the Primary age range and training staff on new learning innovations within Music.

This is an exciting opportunity for a professional with a strong commitment to Music and world class education, whilst ensuring that all students come first.
