ESL Jobs in Shenzhen
Our education group is now holding interviews for English teachers to teach at our public schools that we cooperate with based in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen. If you are a creative teacher, have an interest in an authentic Chinese school setting and can deliver learner centered, engaging lessons then we are interested in speaking with you.
Our education group was founded in London in July 2012 and we have grown rapidly in the past few years and have set up our branch in Shenzhen.
We seek foreign teachers to enhance public primary and secondary schools’ English development to keep pace with the economic development of the region. Our teachers will be assigned to the excellent local schools that we cooperate with. In addition, we have special classes for drama, so if you have relevant drama backgrounds we welcome you on board!
Our goal is to internationalize education in the public sector, and create a relaxed and friendly environment to enable students to gain confidence in their spoken English. We take professionalism in teaching seriously, and as part of that offer regular professional development sessions to assist our staff in their own development, enabling them to reach higher standards both in the short term and in the future.
We undertake a series of exchange programs among public primary and middle schools in China and the UK. The core businesses are composed of input and management of international courses, summer and winter camps in the UK, China-UK sister schools, international exchange students, and consultation of school management.
Our research team has gained knowledge from the advanced concept in our sister school’s UK education systems, and developed B&A Phonics Curriculum according to the diversity of Chinese students. This set can be adopted to all the international courses in primary and middle schools, aimed to help Chinese pupils enjoy learning English. It has also won plenty of praise from schools and the industry.
Teaching materials and resources are provided by the school and are targeted to the age of the students being taught. Materials follow the Chinese national school curriculum and our own developed programs. Teachers are encouraged to adapt and supplement the materials where need be to ensure classes are engaging and interesting.
