DP Psychology and MYP Individuals and Societies Teacher - SCIS - China

Due to some staffing adjustments, we are in immediate need of an experienced IBDP Psychology teacher. There would also be some MYP Individuals and Societies (Humanities) classes to cover as well. There are two very healthy DP1 and DP2 classes and we would be looking for someone comfortable with both the content of the DP Syllabus and the approaches to IBDP assessment particularly for our graduating senior class. The successful candidate will teach 1 section each of IBDP Psychology (11 and 12) as well as 2-3 sections of MYP Individuals and Societies (Humanities) which is a holistic course encompassing aspects of global issues, geography, history, and economics. 

The school is in a fantastic neighbourhood in downtown Shanghai, a few steps from Line 10 which means teachers are 4 subway stops from the Former French Concession and another 3 stops to the Bund. 

Our staff is highly professional, very collegial and enjoy the all there is to offer from a world class city including a thriving arts scene, world-class restaurants and bars, and all of the culture that goes with modern-day China. 

We have the ability to procure a visa for a successful candidate on short notice.
