Teaching in Beijing

Beijing plans to hire from 500 Native English Teachers to teach in Beijing primary schools starting September 2018.

It is an English Teaching Program at Primary Schools in Beijing, financed by Beijing Municipal Commission of Education, and organized by Beijing Language and Culture University. The aim of the program is to enhance the English education of local primary schools in Beijing with the recruitment of qualified foreign English teaching talents. Teachers will be assigned to primary schools located in different districts of Beijing.

Teachers will mainly teach oral English, as well as related curriculum construction and research activities for an approximate total of 16-20 teaching hours per week. The students are from 6 to 12 years old, and they have at least acquired some basic English. Class size is about 35 to 40 students. Each lesson is about 40 to 45 minutes. The textbook is decided by the primary school normally.

The working visa application normally takes about 3 months based on all required documents prepared.  The contract will be signed for 11 months (from September 1 to July 31 of the next year). If you further the contract for another year when it ends, you will receive one month vacation with full payment in August as bonus.
