An exciting opportunity has just arisen for lively, outgoing teachers who speak fluent English and would like to work in an open, international educational environment.

A rapidly growing international secondary school is seeking to recruit three full-time teachers and one part-time teacher of English as a second language.

In existence as a primary school since 1953, the Kiangsu-Chekiang Primary School and College has boasted an international secondary school since 2002 and has more than 100 students.

Accredited by both EDEXCEL and the Cambridge Examination board, the school will operate international general certificate of secondary education (IGCSE) courses from September.

'Each teacher needs to be experienced in teaching more than one subject area,' said Jane Daniel, the head teacher of the primary and secondary international sections.

As the school provides an international education, expatriate teachers were highly sought after, Ms Daniel said.

'Applicants have to be degree holders and have a postgraduate certificate in education, or a postgraduate diploma in education, or should hold a bachelor of education degree. A Teaching English as a Foreign Language diploma isn't enough,' she said.

A minimum of one year's teaching experience, information technology skills and fluent English are essential.
