            The school has two semesters in one academic year and foreign teachers are able to
            sign a contract for one semester or for two semesters (i.e. a full academic year) when
            they first arrive). They can accept teachers from any native English speaking country
            (Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the USA and the UK) but they should have a
            Bachelor's / Masters degree and at least two years' teaching experience (experience of
            having taught GCSEs or A Levels is preferred but they will consider those who have
            other curriculum experience at the same level). They are looking for teachers who are
            passionate, love children and who are easy-going, flexible, adaptable and sociable.
         As the rapid development of economic globalization, English has become a world
         passport. Leading international schools across the world have run bilingual programs.
         Likewise, this school puts a great emphasis on the combination of Chinese and English
         courses to guarantee the completion of national curricula plans, offering Chinese
         students intensive English courses and conducting 25-45% of the classes in English.
         The courses are allocated as follows: pupils in the primary school are taught a
         preparatory course for the CIPP (Cambridge International Primary Program); junior
         middle school students study a preparatory course for the IGCSE (International
         General Certificate of Secondary Education); and high school students receive
         instruction in both a preparatory course for the ACT (American College Test) and
         British A-level (Advanced Level) preparatory courses. The combination of classes
         offers students the possibility of achieving multi-development: not only can they enter
         top Chinese universities, but they also may enrol in world-famous universities abroad.

         At the same time, for junior and senior high school students wishing to study abroad,
         the school offers foundation courses leading to further education in the USA, UK,
         Australia, Canada and New Zealand. For international students, the school uses
         proven international educational products: CIPP, IGCSE, A-level courses, ACT courses,
         Chinese HSK courses, Chinese university foundation courses and supplementary
         Chinese and English courses.

         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 colors. 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 sizable expatriate population comprising members
         from the business community, NGOs, embassies and foreign students. (3/S/TC/M2/58)

         electronics become obsolete almost as soon as they are produced, Tokyo‟s unique
         vitality springs from this intertwining of the new with the time-honoured old. While it‟s
         the wellspring of Japanese pop culture, it is also a place where the imperial family is a

hour although this is not legal without a work permit. There are a very few
International Schools in the two states, mainly in the two state capitals, and these are
expensive including a large non-refundable registration fee. There are more choices of
English medium nursery schools and these are much less expensive. Baby-sitters cost
about £1.60 an hour. A live-in maid costs £650 up-front and £65 a month. A maid two
days a week costs around £40 a month.

                         Thailand is often referred to as a golden land, not because there is
                         precious metal buried underground but because the country gives off a
                         certain lustre, be it the fertile rice fields of the central plains, white
                         sandy beaches or the warm hospitality of its citizenry.

         education that recognizes the value of learning in a happy environment. Teachers at

         difference that the education at this school provides for pupils. The school‟s
         programmes provide numerous opportunities for students to develop their leadership
         and world citizenship skills across a range of subjects. This is a great place for children

Evaluating an employment package overseas means looking at many facets of the offer including
housing, flights, medical and salary. Salary should always be looked at relative to the cost of living
to determine the strength of a salary package in one‟s new surroundings. It is not advised to take a
basic salary and compare to another basic salary in another country without considering how much
it costs to live. For instance, a job paying £10,000 per year in a country with a very low cost of
living might result in a teacher saving £6,000 per year, whereas a teacher earning £30,000 in a
country with a high cost of living might struggle to make ends meet. Additionally, teachers
considering international positions must also understand the savings resulting from paid housing and
lower tax rates.
Teachers with families should also carefully consider the cost as well as the implications of living
overseas and educating your child at an international school. For more information for teachers with
dependents please ask your recruiter.
