THE SUMMER CAMP

ABOUT THE BEIJING SUMMER CAMP

The Beijing summer camp is run in-partnership with CEAIE and takes place in August each year. The summer camp gives our applicants the first real taste of teaching and life in China. The summer camp lasts around 2 weeks and can be quite intensive for applicants filled with lots of teaching hours in-front of real classes. Applicants are effectively thrown in at the deep-end from day one and while we can understand how daunting this can be for applicants, it is proven to increase teachers confidence and teaching abilities over the two week period. CEAIE have a lot of experience running the camp as they have done for more than the last 10 years with every single camp ending successfully. The camp is something that applicants can look back on once they get to their school and appreciate the value that it adds.

WHATS INCLUDED IN THE SUMMER CAMP

2 WEEK TEACHER TRAINING COURSE

The 2 week intensive course has been designed to get the best out of our applicants. Applicants will find the days to be long and tiring but the outcome of the training is that our applicants will feel more confident in their teaching abilities when they go to their new schools. 

ACCOMMODATION

& FOOD

Applicants will receive free accommodation and food for the duration of the summer camp. Applicants may choose to bring a little bit of spending money to buy themselves a few items during the camp.

HISTORICAL SIGHTSEEING TRIPS

Applicants will also have the opportunity to go sightseeing to some of Beijing's famous landmarks during the camp such as the Great wall, Summer Palace, the Temple of Heaven, and Tiananmen Square.

3 DAY TEFL COURSE (PART 2)

Applicants will undertake the second part of their 120-hour TEFL qualification with a 3 day intensive TEFL course. The course will let applicants learn and practice different classroom teaching styles including the fundamentals of teaching.

WHEN & WHERE IS THE SUMMER CAMP?

The summer camp takes place sometime near the middle of August each year. The exact date for the camp is not announced until around one to two months before as there are many things that need to be organised for the camp. The camp is run each year in a number of locations across Beijing. Applicants will be expected to fly to Beijing to take part in the summer camp before later departing by train to their placement school. We will help applicants with the logistics of getting to the camp during the application process.

 

IS ATTENDANCE COMPULSORY?

Yes, attendance is compulsory. Any applicants that is able to attend the summer camp is required to. A lot of time, effort, and money is put into the camp to ensure that it is successful and that it benefits our teachers and we hope that our applicants can appreciate that. For applicants that miss the summer camp due to a certain circumstances (it happens every year for a few people) then we will work with the applicant and CEAIE to see if we can still place the applicant without attending the camp (as you will also complete your TEFL at the camp).

HOW MUCH DOES THE SUMMER CAMP COST?

The costs of the summer camp are covered by sponsors so you don't need to worry.
