From £549
Duration 330 Days
Teach in a Chinese state school for a year and get a taste of what life is like in this fascinating country. Generous salaries and appealing work schedule make this perfect for a few months abroad!

Our state school 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 and Xuzhou.

Our placements begin in August 2018 and run in cities like Shanghai, Beijing, Suzhou, Chongqing and more!

What will I be doing?
Working with students from Kindergarten to university, 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 £650-£1600, depending on location. 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?

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 £549, 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
  •     120-hour TEFL qualification
  •     2-week training camp in Beijing
