About Beijing

A modern global megacity with three millennia of rich history, Beijing is both one of the oldest cities in the world and one of the world’s leading centers for education, culture, innovation and technology.

Renowned for its opulent palaces, temples, parks, gardens and tombs, Beijing contains seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites; most notably the Great Wall of China and the grand Forbidden City complex - the imperial palace during the Ming and Qing dynasties.

With a vibrant city center, Beijing delivers all the benefits of living in a big city: experience Sanlitun’s bar scene, taste authentic Chinese cuisine, scout street markets for hidden treasures, or shop for high-end brands in the largest mall in Asia. And yet - encircled by mountains capped by the meandering Great Wall of China - Beijing is perfectly poised to appreciate China’s natural wonders: view cherry blossoms blooming on the hillsides in spring, and watch the autumn leaves turn vivid shades of orange and red in Beijing’s many national parks.

Teaching in a Beijing Elementary School

Beijing elementary schools have one month’s vacation in winter and around two months’ summer vacation, so teaching in our schools leaves plenty of free time for travelling and provides a high salary on which to do so.  

Your priority will be inspiring children to love English – so your classes will mainly consist of playing games, singing songs and reading stories. Your whole class will be taught in English, though you will have a Chinese teaching assistant with you to help with classroom management and give translations where necessary.
Teaching experience is useful but not required. Successful applicants will have a passion for adventure, eagerness to learn new skills, and the ability to adapt to new environments.

What We Do

Our program places graduates into our trusted partner schools in Beijing.

After matching you to your school, we’ll support you every step of the way with preparing your paperwork for the Chinese visa and work permit. Once you land, we’ll pick you up from the airport and take you to your new apartment – and from there, we’ll help you with opening a Chinese bank account, getting a Chinese SIM and everything you need to settle in to your new life in China.

We’ll equip you with teaching plans and lesson materials you can use to create engaging classes, as well as giving you an introduction to life in China and the differences in workplace culture. Throughout your contract, you’ll have an assigned bilingual case-handler who will be available to assist you with any issues you may have during your stay.

There are no fees or deposits for our service at any stage of the process.
