The Job

Our international school is now looking for energetic, enthusiastic and qualified English teachers who can provide a highly engaging and effective learning experience to young learners aged 3 to 12 years old. If you have a strong passion to educate young learners and you possess a keen interest in honing their talents and English speaking ability, we would like to invite you to join our team. We currently have 11 schools in Shanghai alone with over 60 foreign teachers and over 600 students on average per branch.

Our international school was founded by China’s largest young learner education provider and product developer, and Taiwan’s leading publisher of English textbooks for children. We do not only apply global pioneer teaching methods, we are also equipped with solid international teaching resources. We have years of experience in running schools and excellent international research and development team. It is our aim to cultivate the English skills of young learners using creative and characteristic teaching style while creating a pleasant learning environment at the same time. Our courses, textbooks and teaching materials are designed specifically for young learners.

With small class sizes of 10 to 15 students, foreign teachers have more time to engage with their students. Each classroom is also equipped with an interactive whiteboard to help make teaching, easy and learning, fun. Flashcards, teaching plans and textbooks are all provided for with the help of a local teaching assistant in every classroom. Training and development is given strong importance so foreign teachers are provided with paid pre-job training and ongoing training every month.

Shanghai – The City

Known as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, Shanghai is truly an international metropolis in every sense of the word. The most vibrant and progressive city in China, Shanghai is the economic and cultural center, blending an incredible mix of Eastern and Western culture. On one side of the mighty Yangtze River flowing through Shanghai is the Pu Dong district, rural farm land just 20 years ago, it is now the financial and commercial hub with skyscrapers stretching ever higher. Along the western bank of the river, the iconic Bund is a reminder of Shanghai’s colonial past featuring grand European architecture.

For those who like to shop, party and eat, Shanghai has all you could possibly want and more. But despite its cosmopolitan reputation, pockets of quaint tradition remain alive and well, dotted throughout the city. Explore countless old markets, back streets crammed with local eateries and discover incense filled temples still central to the locals’ daily life.
