Dipont was 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 2009, Dipont became authorised participants of the AP (Advanced Placement) Programme and in 2012 we gained IB World School status for 4 of our centres.
Our partner schools have unique histories and cultures, yet you will notice how 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 also 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.
Demand for our foreign curricula provision is extremely high and we are expanding our existing centres, in addition to opening in new locations over the next few years.
Expansion within our existing locations, as well as the opening of new centres, will create a wide range of opportunities at all levels for the next academic year and beyond.
Current projections indicate that our student numbers will grow from just over 5,000 this year to at least 8,000 within the next few years.
Appointments will be available in IB, A Level and AP Centres for Centre Principals, and subject teachers.
