Wellington College China represents the marriage of traditional values and progressive education. Our Wellington values of Courage, Kindness, Responsibility, Respect and Integrity are as pertinent today as they were more than 150 years ago when Wellington College was founded.
Our vision is to inspire pupils to become intellectual, independent, individual and inclusive; our Wellington identity. This will be based on a model of holistic education and pastoral provision that establishes the values, aptitudes and knowledge needed to be an effective global citizen. We aim to prepare pupils for success during and beyond life at the College.
We aspire to create a caring, learning community that develops well-rounded individuals with strong values and the skills and identity to thrive within an ever-changing world.
To this end, we are seeking a team of motivated, dynamic and forward thinking professionals who will add something special to this exceptional educational setting.
A school of Wellington’s reputation and quality, both here in China and in the UK, attracts the best teachers from all over the world, and we already have a teaching team of the highest quality.
We only employ teachers who are genuinely enthused and excited about their subjects at Senior level, or about the broader sweep of enquiry-based class teaching at Junior level. We also look for plenty of relevant experience of the curriculum elements in use here. We expect our teachers to share our high expectations and aspirations, for themselves and their pupils, and to be demonstrably fully committed to the all-round education that our Wellington Aptitudes approach embodies.
Wellington is a busy, thriving and ambitious school, with boarding, and we seek teachers who are ready for a full commitment to the school and its wider community. Those searching for a ‘nine to five, no weekends’ posting should consider their applications carefully.
Tianjin is a bustling and rapidly growing city, with a charm and character that belies its size. The school enjoys a superb central location in Tianjin, with an ever-increasing range and variety of residential options for families, couples or single people very close to the school. The Chinese government is investing heavily in the city, and the wider region, with a clear aim for Tianjin to become the ‘Shanghai of the North’. It is an exciting place to be!
