Now, let us tell you how we got from the classrooms of the world to speaking with you today!

Long before Impact teaching was founded back in 2019, we had already helped thousands of teachers their start new lives overseas. Our big brother and other brand, Teach English In China, was born in 2005.

After working in China ourselves, we noticed a lot of confusion and lack of support for new teachers moving halfway across the world to a country where they couldn’t speak the language and didn’t understand the culture. So, we created Teach English In China to simplify the process and connect people with safe, reliable and legal teaching placements they could trust

Fourteen years on, Impact Teaching came about after a cry from people like you for us to offer more programs in different countries. You asked so we delivered.

Working together with carefully selected partners in cities around the world, we’re here to make your teach abroad dreams a reality. Experts in their fields and careers, our partners are 100% vetted, approved and recommended – and not only by us: just ask the thousands of students, teachers and adventurers whose footsteps you’re following in.
