Your Profile

Working in a school in China requires a specific type of resilience and adaptive mind set. You’ll need to be engaging, have strong communication skills, a flexible attitude…and a sense of humour helps! We ask that applicants are able to combine a strong work ethic and self-discipline with warmth, empathy and a smile!

Applicants should hold, or be working towards, a minimum Bachelors Degree Qualification and hold a passport from a native English speaking country due to visa regulations.

We do not specify a minimum degree classification or GPA, as we believe that your rounded skills as a whole are a more suitable indicator of your suitability for the program.

Applicants should be aged 21 by mid-January 2018 for the February intake and aged 21 by mid-July 2018 for the August/September intake.

    Your Role

    As an English Teacher at a school in China you will be responsible for implementing an immersive, interactive and progressive environment for students to improve their English Language and communication skills. Encouraging participation, your role will be to nurture existing skills, improve individual communication ability and impart confidence in classes of various sizes.

    You will be expected to hold meetings with other teachers and staff members to discuss curriculum development, but will largely be responsible for planning and implementing your own lessons, as your classes will be supplemental to students’ regular English curriculum.

    Although you will be working with set classes at a specific school in China, you will be directly employed by a Government Licensed Agency, you will be responsible for reporting directly to them, keeping them up to date with your progress and treating them as a point of contact for any questions you may have.

    You will have the option of working at a Primary, Middle or Public school in China.

    English in Chinese schools

    China is a country that prides itself on academic achievement and excellence; even with a literacy rate of 99.6% among their huge youth population and consistently excellent global testing results, schools in China are continually looking for dynamic answers to challenges presented by the existing education structure.

    There are currently over 200 million English language learners in China, and among that population many are taught using a rote system of learning, concentrating on memorisation of information and preparation for intensive testing. This has posed several difficulties for English Language students in areas such as grammar and sentence structure, but most importantly in oral communication skills and confidence!

    With an ever growing desire for internationalisation in China, and aspirations from China’s youth to work and study in countries such as the USA and the United Kingdom, schools are looking to the inclusive and critical thinking based academic experience of the West to enhance the quality of education among students in their formative years.
