Requirements to Teach in China
We work with a great number of reputable private schools in China, however, our teachers must meet the following requirements laid out by the Chinese State Administration for Foreign Expert Affairs. There are different procedures for various nationalities and for different locations around China.
Teachers must meet the following requirements to teach in China:
A Bachelor’s degree
Two years of post graduate work experience
A TEFL certification (120+ hours). Some schools will still accept a 100-hour certificate, but 1st-tier cities like Beijing and Shanghai require at least 120-hours of TEFL training.
First-tier cities like Beijing and Shanghai are now leaning strongly towards classroom based TEFL certifications or combined TEFL certificates that include online and classroom hours. If you are unsure about a TEFL course, go with a TEFL provider that will provide you with a certificate that does not have ‘online’ stamped across the front of it.
Our goal is to assist ESL teachers to come to China to teach English in China, especially in the city of Beijing., Our goal is to help them to familiarize themselves with the Chinese culture. Our emphasis is on you to spend a wonderful time in China while acquiring the ESL teaching experience of a lifetime and broadening your horizons. It is our honor and pleasure to be your link to China.
