To teach in China you need to have a passport from an English speaking country or be fluent in English and have studied at a University in a native English speaking country.

You also must be a graduate in any subject. You do not need to be a teacher, have previously completed a TEFL certificate or have teaching experience to apply. Having teaching experience is a definite advantage but is not essential.

In order to qualify for one of our teaching positions in China you need to have completed a 150 hour hybrid TEFL course. This is a TEFL course which includes some offline content, usually classroom experience. Our partners in China can offer you a FREE hybrid TEFL course which usually cost between £500 and £1000. If you already have a TEFL qualification which does not include offline content we can help you convert your TEFL to a hybrid qualification for FREE.
