ESL Teaching Job
English Teacher at International Kindergarten at UWC Campus, excellent package
Experience a new culture by living and teaching English in China while receiving a generous salary. Opening in August 2017 in Changshu at the United World College (UWC) China campus, Smart Kidz International Kindergarten is currently seeking English teachers for children aged 3 to 6.
With over 177 international schools and colleges around the world, UWC prides itself in making education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. The UWC China campus currently has around 450 students from 80 countries and uses the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum.
