Richmond School District International
The International Programs Department, a revenue generating entity within the British Columbia Richmond School District, runs a variety of programs both on and off shore. These programs include: full time international students in our Richmond schools, short term visiting international students, professional learning programs for Chinese teachers and administrators, and supporting schools abroad with the provision of certified teachers and professional support.
For more than 10 years our District has been successfully in offering cooperative teaching programs in a variety of schools in Shenzhen, China. Teaching positions range from Grade 1 to 9. While the majority of the instruction delivered is focused on EFL, our teachers do have the opportunity to teach other subject areas from time to time. All the teaching positions are within the Chinese public schools and follow the Chinese curriculum. Our purpose in Shenzhen is two-fold: to provide excellent English instruction and to provide opportunities for Chinese school teachers, administrators and parents to observe our Canadian teaching methodologies. To date, the program has proven to be interesting and rewarding for all teacher participants, students, professional staff and parents. We hope to continue to deliver and improve this very successful program for many years to come. It is with this in mind, that we are offering up to 8 classroom positions for certified Canadian teachers for the 2017/18 school year in Shenzhen, China.
The compensation package for our offshore teachers is similar to that of a teacher working in our school district. Compared to other teaching positions in China, these positions are some of the best teaching opportunities for qualified foreign teachers. Upon completion of a successful assignment in China most of our teachers have returned to the Richmond School District to join our schools as full time teachers.
