Town/ city location:
Number of TEFL/TESOL positions available:
50 vacancies each month
Start date, hours per week and length of contract:
Monthly starts available in cities all over China. Generally, you’ll be teaching about 18-20 real hours per week with some office hours for lesson planning, meetings, teacher skills workshops, etc. All positions are for 12 months.
Pay, holidays and additional benefits:
Pay does vary from city to city, mainly due to living costs in different parts of China. For smaller cities, you’ll be on around £800 per month (after tax) + free housing. This goes a very long way in China and you’ll be able to save. For larger cities, you’ll be looking at £900 per month + free housing.
All jobs come with full working visas for China (important), and teh agency and school will both do all the hard work for you and explain each step of the way to make things simple for you.
At the end of the year, schools in China pay a bonus roughly equivalent to your flight costs to reimburse your fight ticket.
Is there a placement fee or any other fee to the applicant for arranging their position?
None. All placements are 100% free to teachers.
Qualifications and Requirements
Any Global English TESOL
However, longer courses will give you more options. The Global English 120-hour TESOL Premier course is recommended as a minimum; it will prepare you better as a teacher and show the school you are serious about your TEFL career.
98% of agency teachers are native-speakers, however it is possible to place non-native speakers, as long as the teachers are at near-native level with no noticeable accent.
Other qualifications or TEFL experience:
Teachers should be aged at least 22 years old with a degree and a TEFL certificate. The agency can occasionally assist with non-degree applicants in a limited number of cities in China.
