The GORSE Academies Trust recognises the importance of China as a nation of increasing global significance.

The centre seeks to develop cultural and political understanding, as well as opportunities for international placements and exchanges.

You will join our dynamic teaching team and our Partnership Director to work across the Trust in primary, secondary and Post-16 education. We are seeking an inspirational teacher who has the flair and expertise to engage and inspire students through their teaching of Chinese language and culture. The successful candidate will demonstrate integrity and a determination to ensure all students thrive within our provision.

Commitment to safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be subject to full employment checks, including an enhanced DBS disclosure and barring service check. We promote diversity and aim to establish a workforce that reflects the population of Leeds.
