1. It Starts Easy - the Online Application
The first step is to fill out an online application, to tell us things like teaching grade(s), subject or area of interest, education background, work history, geographic preferences, and interest in coaching after-school co-curricular activities. After reviewing your profiles, we will pair you with a hiring specialist and begin one-on-one work to find you an ideal placement in your preferred regions.
2. The Requirements
Different schools demand differently on teacher qualifications. Usually international schools have the highest standards, followed by bilingual schools and public schools. English training centers require the minimal to start. T&Y Education mostly specializes in recruitment for regular international/bilingual day schools, with a few exceptions with some reputable English learning centers.
At the international/bilingual schools, you will be more than just an English teacher, sharing the classroom as a homeroom co-teacher with an English-speaking Chinese partner. Similar to the immersion schools in the U.S., instruction time will be shared between English and Chinese with a preferred proportion decided by the school.
Below are some basic requirements you need to fulfill in order to work in a Chinese school. Don’t hesitate to drop us a line if you have any questions or concerns in this regard.
Must be an English native speaker for English Homeroom positions.
A valid Teacher Certificate or a Master’s in Education HIGHLY PREFERRED*.
*Candidates with extensive teaching experience in private/independent schools who don’t have a teacher certificate must complete a TEFL/TESOL certificate.
Minimum two-year working/internship experience.
