Public School Teaching in Shenzhen
Shenzhen is an ultra-modern city skyline combined with lots of clean, green space, and is often referred to as the Silicon Valley of Asia! There is a vibrant expat community in the city where English is widely spoken. Many of our teachers are already teaching in Shenzhen from our previous intake and many others have extended their contracts. This city has amazing nightlife, an endless array of restaurants, shopping, modern and cheap transportation as well as regular cultural and sporting events.
Shenzhen is located on the coast with a subtropical climate and great beaches. There are miles of seaside cycling and walking paths located around this green city, connected to Hong Kong via a short subway ride!
What makes public school teaching different from private schools?
Teaching hours are low: you will only teach approximately 12-15 hours each week. The rest of your working hours are usually spent planning your lessons or giving feedback to your students. Outside of this you might like to spend some time playing basketball or chess with your students! With the low teaching hours comes a regular Monday-Friday schedule and this makes for a great work life balance. Giving you plenty of time to enjoy the city on your weekends. There are more teaching hours at private schools, but with this the monthly salaries are higher.
