Our university teaching programme is the ideal way to gain international work experience and have endless travel opportunities!  Here at Teach English In China, we have been organising teaching placements for over 10 years, building strong relationships with well-established schools in cities such as Shanghai, Wuhan Xuzhou.
Our placements start in February 2018; the positions are for 2 academic semesters (11 months, February 2018- January 2019). University positions are available in Wuhan, a lively Chinese city with a sizeable expat community.

What will I be doing?
Working with university students, you will 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 £800. Your school will provide you with accommodation. This is usually free of charge and either an individual apartment or a room within a shared apartment.
With weekends off, various National Holidays and a long winter break, the teaching schedule in China leaves plenty of time to explore.

Am I eligible?

To apply, you must have already graduated. We accept all degree disciplines.

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

You will also need to complete an online TEFL course but can do so after applying with us.
We are looking for enthusiastic, organised and committed individuals who will rise to the challenge of living and working abroad.

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

To apply you MUST be a native English speaker, with a UK, US, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand or Irish passport.

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
Help with the visa process
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
