Our placements start in February 2018. Our partner in Xuzhou is open to applicants working for them for one semester (4 months from February 2018-June 2018)

What will I be doing?
You will work in either a kindergarten, primary or middle school and be responsible for planning and delivering fun and engaging lessons to help improve students’ confidence in using oral English. Your school will provide a curriculum, but there is plenty of scope to use your creativity and imagination.

Working an average of 15-25 hours per week, Monday-Friday, you will receive a comfortable monthly salary of £750 and free accommodation.

You will have weekends off and long national holidays that allow plenty of time to explore.

Am I eligible?

We are looking for enthusiastic, organised and committed individuals who will rise to the challenge of living and working abroad.

To apply, you must:

  • Have already graduated (any degree discipline)
  • Be a native speaker of English
  • Hold a UK, Irish, Canadian, US, Australian or New Zealand passport
  • Complete a 120-hour TEFL course (can be done after joining the programme)

Previous teaching experience or knowledge of Mandarin is not a requirement.

It is possible to apply for this programme with a friend/partner and we will endeavour to place you in the same city.

What do you offer?

Our state school programme is designed to ensure you walk into the classroom with confidence.

Competitively priced at £400, our programme includes:

  • A pre-departure orientation & training day
  • Visa application assistance
  • Access to our exclusive lesson plan library
  • A former teacher ‘buddy’
  • A contact in China
  • Private Facebook group with other participants in months before departure
