Once a remote fishing village, Shenzhen as we know it today is one of China’s wealthiest, liveliest and most progressive cities. Shenzhen now rivals Shanghai and Beijing as the city of choice for young Chinese professionals and expats – which isn’t surprising given the pleasant seaside climate, proximity to Hong Kong and lively nightlife. Shenzhen beautifully balances megacity status (with 283 skyscrapers) and nature, with several different landscapes all within reach in the same city.

HOW IT WORKS

The Program

If there’s one thing for sure, it’s that you should never have to pay to work. And with us you won’t have to; but, to be able to offer the support, guidance, training, and resources we’re known for, we require all participants to pay a program service fee.

Program Fee

You’ll need a TEFL before you can start teaching in China. If you don’t have one, the fee will include a course and cost £480. If you do, this drops to £400.

Inclusions

The program fee includes support from the moment you apply to the end of your placement in getting a visa, finding a job, and settling in.
