Job Description

Where will your teaching experience take you next?

  • Teach English (ESL/language/literature) or IB Diploma level in one of China's top high schools
  • Work with highly able and motivated Chinese students (aged 15-18)
  • Engage in high quality educational practice in one of the fastest growing sectors globally
  • Join a large network of educators with a focus on collaboration, support and career development

These positions involve teaching English within an internally developed ESL and language/literature programme or at IBDP Level (dependent upon experience and curricula interest). All students have English as a second language and therefore English language development is a key component of our entire high school programme. The ideal candidate should have a relevant degree, strong knowledge of the subject and previous teaching experience at high school level. As our students seek to gain entry at top universities overseas, educators focus on developing students’ application of learning and critical thinking skills in order to prepare them as thoroughly as possible for university abroad.

Some of the benefits of working with Dipont in China

High quality international education: Dipont Education manages international educational programmes (delivering A Level, Advanced Placement and IB Diploma Programmes) within some of the most highly regarded high schools in China. We currently employ over 400 expatriate educators in our high school programmes and have over 6,000 students on roll.

Training and career development: Teachers have the opportunity to transfer to other locations or programmes during their course of employment. In addition, we are actively focused on providing internal career development opportunities, with the potential to move into curricula or centre management roles. We provide workshops, support and access to external training.

Our students: A high number of students enter Dipont centres with the aim to study in some of the top universities in the West, and therefore teachers can enjoy working with some exceptionally motivated and academically high achieving students without the classroom management issues experienced in other teaching posts. As China settles into its role as the economic powerhouse of the 21st century, a teaching position with Dipont provides a platform to work with a generation of young Chinese talent eager to take advantage of every opportunity available to them.

Salary and benefits: Salary levels are very competitive with a benefits package that includes: accommodation allowance, annual return airfare, annual bonus and worldwide medical cover. Cost of living is very favourable and disposable income is high. Initial contract term is 2 years with annual renewal thereafter. 

Applications are invited from:  

  • Highly skilled educators with the ability to engage and stretch high performing students
  • A recognised teaching qualification and experience teaching the subject at high school level
  • A track record of excellent teaching with well-developed subject knowledge

Early application preferred with information sessions and interviews being conducted in Belfast on the 17th November and Dublin on the 18th November.
