Why teach with our client:

Students: Our model, by working with highly regarded public & private high schools, offers educators a unique opportunity to teach high ability Chinese students who are eager to learn without the behaviour management issues experienced in many teaching posts. Teachers who really enjoy the depth of subject teaching required at A level, IBDP or AP level find this experience incredibly fulfilling. One of the key aims within each centre is to adequately prepare our students for successful university careers and for life overseas, in part developed through a modern, western style of teaching that encourages critical thinking, debate and application of learning. Our students, above all else, make teaching here a very special and rewarding experience.

Schools: Our partner schools have unique histories and cultures, yet common themes emerge across all of them:high standards, committed students and a belief in the all-round development of young people. From the oldest school in the world (where our A-Level centre in Chengdu is based) to the most recently developed institution, the commitment to the success of these programmes and recognition for the contribution foreign teachers make, is undoubted.These openings will go fast, apply today or contact your personal placement consultant for more information!
