About the School

RDFZ King's College School Hangzhou is one of two new school development projects in China initiated through partnership between the prestigious King's College School, Wimbledon and the highly successful Chinese education management group, Dipont Education. A third partner for the Hangzhou project is The High School Affiliated to Renmin University (RDFZ), one of China's leading schools. At capacity, the whole school will serve over 3,100 students from 3 to 18 years of age.

The School is located on a lakeside site in the Yuhang District of Hangzhou. Facilities are world-class, with the space designed as a place that responds to its local context and a global education culture. The campus is in final fit-out stage and will provide students and staff with a wonderful learning and working environment. An exceptional teaching and leadership team for all sections of the school has been appointed and student admission levels are excellent.

Hangzhou, with a population of over 9 million people, is the capital of Zhejiang Province and an important city in China, recognised for its history, prosperity and beautiful natural scenery. It recently hosted the G-20 summit and will stage the Asian Games in 2022. Shanghai can be accessed within 1 hour by high speed train.



About the Role

Reporting to the Head of Kindergarten, the successful applicant will join the school in August 2018. The Kindergarten will cater for students aged 3 to 6 and will operate a bilingual curriculum based on the UK Early Years Foundation Stage integrated with elements of the Chinese curriculum. There will be a shared pedagogical approach throughout the campus, enabling Chinese and expatriate students to benefit enormously from the cross-cultural exposure.

The Kindergarten offers an open, fluid learning environment where lessons and activities are held both inside and outside of the classroom. Classes will operate in pairs for each age group and will be staffed by one Chinese teacher and one expatriate teacher with additional assistant support. This will allow teachers to support each other in planning, delivery of the curricula and the development of each child's English and Chinese language skills.

This exciting and challenging role commands a highly competitive salary and benefits package, including: high quality housing; flights for employee and dependents and medical insurance for employee and dependents. Full tuition support will be provided for any successful applicant with school age children. The position will be offered on an initial two-year contract term with annual renewal thereafter.



Applications are invited from candidates with:

* Experience in early years education and a passion for the opportunities a bilingual programme provides for children

*The ability to work collaboratively and contribute to the development of an outstanding school

* An excellent and highly competitive salary scale including bonus system
