The Schools

Right now, we have openings with the leading schools in China, from kindergartens to primary, middle and high schools, universities and private language centers. We provide detailed job descriptions, city guides and interviews with current teachers for each position.

All the schools provide exceptional teaching materials, the latest educational technology with interactive white boards and have friendly teaching teams, supportive management, and offer a generous compensation package.

With private school positions, class sizes are kept small to an average of 8 to 12 students which allows for noticeable progress to be made and also makes classroom management that much easier.
