Academic achievement at Concord College is exceptional.  In 2019, students achieved 85% 7-9 (A*/A) at GCSE and 84% A*/A at A level.  We are also delighted that over 120 students have been offered places at Oxford and Cambridge over the last six years. 

We wish to appoint a well-qualified and enthusiastic part-time Teacher of Mandarin Chinese.

The successful candidate will be capable of teaching Mandarin and Cantonese Chinese to A level, principally to native or near-native speakers of Chinese, and prepare them effectively for all aspects of their A level examination. The classes will take place off timetable, on weekday evenings. In addition, the successful candidate will be capable of preparing native speakers and near-native speakers of Mandarin or Cantonese Chinese for the GCSE examination, and will conduct the speaking examination as teacher-examiner. These classes will also take place off timetable, after 4pm. A willingness to contribute to the broader life of the College is expected.

We offer a generous remuneration package which includes a salary significantly above Main Scale, duty payments, free meals, Teachers’ Pensions and a pro rata contribution to private health insurance.
