Dipont was originally founded in Australia in 1990 as a private emigration and visa consulting company, focused primarily on providing advice, support and services to Chinese students studying overseas. In 1994, Dipont began roll-out in mainland China and established branch offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Chengdu, Xi'an, Shenzhen, Chongqing, Hangzhou and Wuxi, in addition to representative offices in the US, Canada and the UK.
In 2003, we launched the CIE A Level programme and in 2009, we became authorised participants of the AP (Advanced Placement) Programme. In 2012 we gained IB World School status for 4 of our centres, adding another school in 2013.
Our partner schools have unique histories and cultures, yet common themes emerge across all of them: high standards, committed and polite students and a belief in the all-round development of young people.
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 an international style of teaching that encourages critical thinking, debate and application of learning.
Demand for our international curricula provision is extremely high and we continue to expand our school network each year.
Expansion within our existing locations, as well as the opening of new centres, continues to create a wide range of opportunities at all levels each academic year.
Current projections indicate that our student numbers will grow from just over 6,000 this year to more than 8,000 within the next two years.
Appointments will be available in IB, A Level and AP Centres for Centre Principals and subject teachers.
