How to Find a Job Teaching English in China
Anyone applying to teach English in China must have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and a TEFL qualification and be a native English speaker. While there are still a few schools around that claim they can employ non-native speakers, these are illegal and put teachers at risk.
In order to legally teach English in China, you will need to obtain a work visa. This is a complicated process that is best done with the support of an experienced agency or recruiter. That said, you must be careful when searching; the market is rife with organizations that illegally recruit teachers to work on the wrong visas or withhold salaries or flight reimbursement money.
To ensure you remain on the right side of the law and have an enjoyable experience, we offer a range of fully supported teaching programs with reputable schools in China through our subsidiary company, Teach English In China.
