I have been living in Chongqing, China for just over a month now and I couldn’t be happier with my choice. Teachers for Asia made the process so smooth, from first contact with them in March to starting my job in August, they were reliable and helpful every step along the way. Thanks to TFA I am able to do what I’ve always dreamed of doing in a country I couldn’t imagine I’d have the opportunity to live.

State of the art schools

tfa-02Teachers deliver General English or Business English in state of the art facilities including superb computer labs and a multimedia theatre for teaching interesting lessons, or to enjoy watching an English movie with your students! There is a Barista style café at the reception of each school to encourage learning through social engagement.

Our client opened their first school in 2006 and has gained an excellent reputation. Positions are available in cities including like Shenzhen, Chengdu, Xi’an and Suzhou. Several other cities are available so if you have a particular location in mind, let us know when you apply.

Industry leading package

Rent is paid for by the school. Salaries are more than enough to cover a comfortable standard of living and to allow for savings. The cost of living in China can be less than half of western nations. Tier one cities such as Shenzhen or Beijing are more expensive than smaller cities so salaries there are a little higher. Teachers pay their own income tax of roughly 7% of total salary.

Subject to a successful interview and getting your documents ready, it can take as little as 4-8 weeks to start your teaching contract. You will have all the support you need for the transition to life in China from both the school and ourselves here at Teachers For Asia. Our teachers are picked-up at the airport, accommodated at a hotel for a few days to help settle in before being taken to your new apartment.

You will have a supportive and welcoming management team at school with a teaching staff from several other countries. There are usually up to 6 international teachers working at each school.
There is structured orientation and high quality teacher training for newly arriving teachers of around two weeks duration. All required teaching resources are provided for you.

Regular ongoing professional workshops are available throughout your contract. Most of the Business English students work for major companies such as HP and IBM. Having this kind of experience on your resume when you return home will be appealing to any future employer!

Places are limited each month.
