Overview

Position Outline

Delivering the AP, A Level or IB  Economics programmes to students aged 15-18. Locations and curriculum as follows:

Xi’an – A Level/AP Economics

Dalian – A Level Business

 

The A Level Programme

Cambridge International A/AS Level is an internationally recognised qualification, taken

by students in over 125 countries. The Dipont Cambridge programme includes IGCSE

for Pre A Level (PAL) and the CIE AS and A2 levels. IGCSEs are taught within one year,

with students then moving onto the AS and A2 programmes. Expatriate teachers teach

predominantly at AS and A2 level.

Subjects offered are Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Chemistry,

Economics, Business Studies, ICT and Accounting. English is a compulsory subject

for all students throughout the programme, even when they have met English entrance

requirements (IELTS/TOEFL) for overseas universities. Students can choose 4 to 5

subjects at AS level and in most cases take 3 to 4 subjects at A2 level. The Chinese

The IB Programme

The IB Diploma programme is a highly valued pre-university preparation recognized in

140 + countries worldwide. All students study 6 subjects from the following groups: First

Language, Second Language, Humanities, Science, Mathematics, and Aesthetics. In

addition, they participate in the CAS programme, attend Theory of Knowledge classes

and complete a 4,000 word Extended Essay.

Students preparing to study for the IB Diploma complete a one-year Pre-IB course. This

is a preliminary programme designed to equip students to progress successfully onto the

Diploma programme upon authorization from the IB. For the first year, the programme

focuses on the development of English skills and introduces the range of subjects

available within the diploma to enable students to make an informed choice of their

diploma subjects. IGCSE certification is incorporated into the first year.

The AP Programme

The AP Programme

Advanced Placement courses provide high ability students with the opportunity to earn

college credit whilst at high school and stand out in the admissions process to Colleges

in the US, Canada and other parts of the world. Dipont has developed a coordinated

curriculum that builds on the strength of the Chinese National Curriculum through the

study of AP courses and the provision of academic English teaching.

In some parts of the world, high school students can take AP examinations without

having taken AP courses. The College Board, however, strongly recommends that the

best way to prepare for an AP exam is to take a specifically developed AP course. For

most Chinese students, whose learning follows the Chinese national curriculum, taking

the AP exam without undertaking a specific course is unrealistic due to the requirement

to master concepts, display critical thinking skills and study particular content. Our

students really benefit from our more concept-driven AP courses that can build upon their

previous learning.

We currently offer courses in Calculus, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Environmental

Science, Economics, History, Geography, Art, Music, Psychology and Computing whilst

English, often with a strong literature content, is taught to all students. As in A Level

Centres, students take a Pre-AP year in order to prepare them for the first year of AP

study.

The schools

Our model, by working with a highly regarded public high school, offer educators a unique

opportunity to teach high ability Chinese students who are eager to learn – without the

behaviour management issues experienced in many teaching posts. Teachers who

really enjoy the depth of subject teaching required at AP A Level and IB  find this

experience incredibly fulfilling. One of the key aims within each centre is to adequately

prepare our students for successful university careers and for life overseas, in part

developed through a modern, western style of teaching that encourages critical thinking,

debate and application of learning. Our students, above all else, make teaching here a very

special and rewarding experience.
