PLACEMENTS & TEACHING

PART A: THE PLACEMENT PROCESS

China is a huge country with diverse landscapes, culture, and history. With this variation comes a large range in the experience that you can have in China depending on your location. We understand that not all locations will suite all applicants, with some applicants being more strongly suited for one location than another (i.e. an urban city vs a rural one). Also as applicants are expected to remain within their chosen city for the duration of their placement it is important that we get the selection right first time.

To help us provide the most accurate placement possible we have the "placement process". This process typically begins around April-May time. During this process applicants will be provided with a list of criteria for their preferred city (we say preferred because we can't always 100% guarantee, even though we will try where ever we can!). The criteria will then be used to match the applicant with a location and school that they will begin their visa process with.

REGION SELECTION

Select from a province or just a general area in China i.e. North East, South China.

WORKING HOURS

Pick between a relaxed job with little hours to a more strict environment with office hours.

SCHOOL CURRICULUM

Pick between a school has a standardised school curriculum to one that is free for the teacher to adjust to their preferences.

AGE DEMOGRAPHIC

Applicants have the possibility of teaching students from Primary schools, Middle schools, High schools, or Universities based on their preferences.

CLIMATE

Applicants may have a preferred climate in-mind from Beijing which has four very distinctive seasons to Guangdong where it's warm most of the year.

PROXIMITY TO OTHER TEACHERS

Applicants may choose to be near or with other teachers on the programme. Alternatively, they may prefer to live in an isolated environment to get the most from the experience.

TYPE OF CITY

Applicants have the choice of selecting between a more traditional city or a modern city.

PART B: THE TEACHING

For the majority of our applicants this will be the first time they have ever stood in the front of the classroom and taught. It's easy to understand why this may seem like a daunting and uneasy task that puts some people off applying altogether. This fear is quickly lost however once applicants begin teaching at their school and find out that the job is a lot more fun (and less scary!) than they had initially expected.
