Job description

Our free Private School Placement Programme offers you the chance to join a well-established Private Language Institute in locations all over China and gain valuable skills and experience useful to any career path.

Working closely alongside experienced and committed foreign and Chinese colleagues, you will be responsible for planning and leading your own classes to groups of approximately 15 students. Your school will provide you with a detailed curriculum and classroom resources, but there is plenty of room for creativity in how you teach. In most cases, you will almost always have a Mandarin-speaking assistant to support you in the classroom.

Our programme is free of charge and offers a number of key benefits that ensure you have the best possible experience in China:

  1. We work with some of the most reliable and well established private school in China, and can put you in touch with people who have worked at the schools in the past. We ensure that you receive free accommodation throughout your stay with the school.
  2. We put you in touch with other people who are going to China at the same time as you, so you'll have a social network from the moment you arrive.
  3. We offer detailed resources that help you with lesson planning, visa preparation and all logistics involved in your trip.

The school we work with have been selected because they offer options for career progression, so while you start as a teacher you can progress to roles like senior teachers, Head of Studies and other management roles.

Many of the teachers that started with us years ago are still in China and working at the highest levels within our partner schools.

Free programme, but refundable £150 holding deposit required. It covers help with lesson planning, contact person in China
