INTRODUCTION

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

Teaching in China has a simple yet effective goal to promote the cultural exchange between China and native speaking English countries through a paid teaching programme. The programme begins in August of each year run in partnership with the not-for-profit organisation China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE). We offer full-time and part-time placements across 19 diverse regions in China. No matter if you are looking to really immerse yourself in an exclusively Chinese environment or you would prefer to live in one China’s bustling international mega metropolises we have placements available for you.

The year programme is the perfect next step for final year students and recent graduates that are looking to broaden their horizons and gain valuable overseas teaching experience. For this programme, we have verified placement schools in more than 19 regions across China. Applications to this programme are limited and therefore we operate a first-come-first-serve policy. You can fill in an application on the Apply page.

NO TEACHING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY

We have specifically designed our programme for applicants that have no previous teaching experience. Our applicants will receive access to a free 120-hour TEFL course that will teach applicants about the theory of teaching and get them legally qualified to teach in China. Applicants will also attend an all expenses paid two-week intensive Beijing summer camp in August. The camp will help our applicants put their TEFL theory into practice with real-world classroom experience.
