Often confused with the similar sounding ‘Suzhou’, Xuzhou is a major city in Jiangsu Province lying almost halfway between Beijing and Shanghai. Despite being a major national transport hub and an important link between north and south China, it’s little known outside the nation’s borders. Though its rich cultural relics, beautiful gardens and important role in Chinese history have helped it maintain the title of National Famous Historical and Cultural City since 1986.

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.
