Want to teach in China?
We'd love to have you on board. We
1. You need to hold a passport from one of the following countries:
The UK, the USA, the Republic of Ireland, South Africa, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand.
2. You need to have a bachelor's degree (or above) in any subject.
The good news is that you don't need a PGCE or teacher's license as you will be working in a private English training institution.
No previous experience is necessary because you will be given full training when you arrive in China.
Earn an average of 20000 RMB (£2200) after tax with many extra benefits as part of your contract.
Additional benefits include a paid flight up front, free apartment for the first 3 months of your contract, comprehensive health insurance, weekly Chinese lessons, reimbursement of all your visa costs at the end of your contract, and social and team building events for all teachers.
China in 2019 is a truly modern and vibrant country. The big cities have all of the ameneties and comforts that you are used to from home - modern shopping malls, international restaurants, bars and coffee shops. You can find everything you want here. Of course there is still a lot of authentic Chinese culture and it's great to have the flexibility to eat noodles for lunch and eat pizza or Indian curry for dinner.
Not only is it cheap to travel around China, but international travel from China to places such as Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, the Philippines, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, etc. is surprisingly affordable. All of those destinations can be reached for around £100 return. They are mostly within 2 to 3 hours flight time from southern China. So you can use China as a base to travel around Asia during your time off!
Low Cost of Living
Yes, China today is more expensive than 5 or 10 years ago, but the truth is that most things are still cheaper here. Even in the big cities! For example a rice or noodle dish at a local restaurant will set you back 10 or 20 RMB. Even in a chain restaurant in a high end mall it is 50 to 100 RMB per person.
How much money you can save will depend on you lifestyle but as a general rule, a lot of teachers can save half of their salary.
