Our language school in Shanghai is currently holding interviews for a new teaching position. If you are looking to teach in a modern, professional school and have the abundance of energy and creativity to teach English to young learners then do read on.
Our school is owned by the Pearson Education Group, the largest education and publishing company in the world, educating 100 million people with a presence in 110 countries. We aim to be the most respected English language training provider in China, helping people to improve the quality of their English by delivering internationally recognized content through professionally trained teachers.
Our school is equipped with modern facilities and up to date technology as well as a variety of course materials popular with both teachers and students. We currently have 21 campuses all across Shanghai, and are seeking to open even more. As a teacher at our school you will be assigned to a single location in which to teach mainly young learners aged 3 to 15 years old. Each student is placement tested on entering the school which means students studying together have the same level of English. Class sizes are kept small to ensure real progress is made.
We provide a challenging and supportive English Language learning environment that draws students and faculty together with a nurturing spirit in the pursuit of knowledge.
Shanghai The City
Known as the Pearl of the Orient, Shanghai is truly an international metropolis in every sense of the word. The most vibrant and progressive city in China, Shanghai is the economic and cultural center, blending an incredible mix of Eastern and Western culture. On one side of the mighty Yangtze River flowing through Shanghai is the Pu Dong district, rural farm land just 20 years ago, it is now the financial and commercial hub with skyscrapers stretching ever higher. Along the western bank of the river, the iconic Bund is a reminder of Shanghais colonial past featuring grand European architecture.
For those who like to shop, party and eat, Shanghai has all you could possibly want and more. But despite its cosmopolitan reputation, pockets of quaint tradition remain alive and well, dotted throughout the city. Explore countless old markets, back streets crammed with local eateries and discover incense filled temples still central to the locals daily life.
