Living in Shanghai is very exciting. The city is an amazing blend of traditional China and modern living with everything you can imagine on offer and more. It is China's most Westernised city, and the most comfortable one for expatriates. Shanghai is also exceptionally well placed to explore the rest of China and other parts of Asia.
As the title suggests you will be supporting students at their boarding house offering supervisory and some teaching support. You will ideally be a qualified teacher but excellent unqualified applicants might be considered who have similar experience gained in either schools, daycare, summer camps and training centres etc. You may also be a newly qualified teacher looking for their first overseas experience and being able to offer specialisms in Music, Drama Art or PE is very much welcomed. Previous experience of working with Chinese students is also very much welcomed - as is exposure to EAL environments. You will need to be adaptable and flexible and have a positive approach to life, willing to contribute to the continuing development of this great school.
Package: A good starting salary is offered depending on qualifications and experience; flights, furnished housing and medical cover included.
