Role Description

International Grammar is a vibrant and dynamic School located in the heart of Sydney’s educational and technology precinct. The School has a current enrolment of 1250 students in a multi building campus.

IGS offers a unique languages program that immerses children in an intercultural and diverse environment from Early Learning to Year 12. Our School introduced Chinese (Mandarin) into our Early Learning Program in 2017 and we are now expanding this in 2019 into our primary languages program.

This role is a wonderful opportunity for an outstanding Chinese Language teacher to help us successfully integrate Chinese into our Languages program from Kindergarten. Languages are an integral part of the Primary School program and are taught through curriculum content in the target language. This involves understanding the NSW Languages syllabus and working with the IGS developed Languages program.
