Teaching English in China

Training in Barcelona and job placement in China

Barcelona is the international leader of teacher training with several world-class training schools and China currently has the most active English teacher job market on the planet, with an enormous demand for qualified English teachers. So we’ve decided to put together the ultimate TEFL package for the true international adventure seeker! We’ve teamed up with several schools all over China to be able to offer first-class training and a guaranteed job placement afterwards. It includes:

  • The internationally recognised Trinity CertTESOL qualification
  • Five weeks of accommodation in Barcelona
  • 6 hours of introductory Chinese lessons in Barcelona
  • Guaranteed job placement at a school in China

How does it work?

Step 1 – Barcelona

You come to Barcelona to take part in the 1-month, full-time Trinity CertTESOL qualification (click here for dates). You can enjoy the mediterranean sunshine, Spanish & Catalan cuisine, Barcelona’s beaches and amazing lifestyle, all while completing your training at our modern school in Barcelona city centre.

After the the course you will have a ‘chill-out week’ (you will be tired after the intensive training!) to gather yourself, relax and prepare for your move to China. You can also use this time to make final contact and confirmation with your school in China.

Step 2 – China

We have agreements with pre-vetted schools in Beijing and Shanghai. You will fly to your chosen city and make your way to your pre-arranged accommodation.

You will meet a representative at your school and go through an orientation and staff induction process. You will then start paid work!

Your teaching job in China

You will be teaching at a private academy and expected to do up to 25 hours per week of teaching, with a mixture of kids, teens and adult classes. In some cases you will have a bilingual teaching assistant working alongside with you. The exact salary varies from school to school but the range is $1700 – $2300 and in some cases, free accommodation.
