The Lonely Planet says: Eagerly assuming its place among the world's top travel destinations, even more so since Beijing took centre stage at the 2008 Olympics, China is an epic adventure. From the wide open and empty panoramas of Tibet to the push and shove of Shanghai, from the volcanic dishes of Sichun to beer by the bag in seaside Qingdao, a journey through this colossus of a country is a mesmerizing encounter with the most populous and perhaps most culturally idiosyncratic nation on earth.
The sheer diversity of China's terrain takes you from noisy cities fizzing with energy to isolated mountain-top Ming-Dynasty villages where you can hear a pin drop. Shanghai's ambitious skyline is a triumphant statement, but it couldn't be further from the worldly renunciation acted out in Tibet's distant monasteries.
China is the fastest-changing country in the world. The events of the last 50 years have altered images of this vast unknown land and, until recently, many people's perception was of little more than an overpopulated, oppressed, Communist country. Fortunately, China has opened up, in its own way, challenging preconceptions. Amazing wealth exists side-by-side with poverty and the growing middle class are eagerly exchanging their bicycles for motorcycles and work unit housing for smart new apartment complexes.
We recruit only qualified/certified teachers from the following countries:
- United Kingdom/Ireland
- New Zealand
Teachers must be fully trained to teach in state schools in one of these countries and possess full qualification/certification with teacher training such as a Bachelors or Masters of Education, PGCE, Higher Diploma in Education, etc. South African teachers with only a diploma of education will have very limited opportunities as most Ministries of Education require a Bachelors degree in Education, and do not like the word Diploma.
Please note that these are not jobs teaching English as a foreign language and therefore a TEFL certificate and/or non-educational Bachelors degree alone is not enough.
Due to the volume of applications, only successful candidates will be contacted but if you do not meet the above qualifications you will not be considered.
