Job Description

An experienced IB or IGCSE teacher who can provide top-notch instruction to our students.

Responsibilities             

  • Solid understanding of English and Literature

  • Incorporate a variety of teaching and learning approaches including strategies for differentiation, PBL, and inquiry-based learning            

Secondary

Students become youth in Secondary school, a period of life characterized by blossoming capacities, strength and vigour. We believe youth possess great potential to bring about constructive change and have an expanding capacity for meaningful service. Their sense of purpose and thirst for knowledge finds expression through greater ownership of their learning and growth. Our secondary programme aims to assist students to further develop their intellectual capacities along with the qualities, attitudes, and understandings that will enable them to make growing contributions to society. Through rigorous academic training spanning a variety of subjects, they are prepared to succeed in IGCSE in Forms 3 and 4 and the IB Diploma Programme in Forms 5 and 6.

Working Hours & Schedule

Teachers have 36 working hours per week, which is comprised of up to twenty 45-minute teaching periods, various responsibilities, and some planning time. 

There are about 30 days of Macau and school holidays throughout the year which includes both Winter and Chinese Spring Festival breaks, plus about 50 days of summer holidays. Monthly working Saturdays—which often foster community engagement and extension activities—allow us to lengthen our holidays while still meeting contact day requirements.

Compensation & Benefits

The annual base salary, including housing allowance, is approximately US$44,000, after tax, and is slightly increased based on years of experience. This does not include the annual travel allowance, new year’s bonus, pension contributions, and a yearly re-enlistment bonus equivalent to one month’s salary. Furthermore, the government of Macau generously provides a teacher’s professional development subsidy of at least US$600 per month. Taken together, the after-tax total compensation that teachers receive is around US$58,000.

Benefits include local healthcare coverage, reduced tuition for up to two dependents to enroll in the school, internal professional development, and assistance in finding an apartment which includes a one-week hotel stay. The school also covers basic quarantine costs, if needed, for arriving teachers. 

Requirements

A relevant bachelor’s degree.

Minimum 2 years of teaching experience.

(Coursework completed at the Master or Ph.D. level is highly valued but can only be used to partially satisfy this specific requirement of the Education Department. Other teaching qualifications and certifications, always appreciated, are not required for employment as a Middle School or Secondary teacher in Macau.)
