  Here at Teaching Nomad, we receive many applications every day from many professional teachers who seek to teach at an international school in China.

Just remember that in order to teach at an international school in China you will need a valid teaching license. Most international schools in China use the CIE, IB, or AP-curriculum. Schools will require teachers to be familiar with the curriculum of the school they’re applying to, so check what curriculum the school you’re applying to is using.


Teaching Nomad is your connection to teaching in Asia & The Middle East! We are a western owned and operated teacher placement agency with offices in Denver & Shanghai. We take a lot of pride in connecting teachers with great teaching opportunities.
