Graduate Teaching Program

Graduate Teaching Program – China

Working closely with reputable teaching agencies/schools in China – we have created a special Teach in China Graduate Teaching Program.

Graduate GAP Year

We have been working with them for several years and provide reliable and professional TEFL Teaching Positions in China. Enabling our Graduate Teaching Program students to teach in Beijing.

Why Teach in China?

Beijing is in the heart of China. It combines the old with the new and is easily one of the most cultural cities in China. Beijing’s history dates back to more than 3000 year’s and it offers plenty of sight-seeing for the working teacher; such as The Great Wall – the world’s longest man-made wall, and The Forbidden City – It is listed by UNESCO as the largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world.

Can you see yourself in a modern environment, closely tutoring a small group of children and teaching them reading and conversation skills? How about delivering a high-energy workshop to 20 teens, boosting their confidence and encouraging self development? Or teaching in a public school and making a difference to the lives of hundreds of students every year?

The Graduate Program works with a range of carefully selected partners, from small private language centres to large public schools giving you the chance to choose from a diverse range of roles and institutions to match your skills and preferences.

Your job will be to deliver well-planned lessons, often with a focus on oral English. In a Private Language Centre, class sizes typically range between 1- 10 students, and 40-60 students in public schools. You will be helped along the way by a teaching assitant.

TEFL China Teaching Program

We work closely with the Government Agencies to provide teachers with ESL positions in Government Schools.
