The Teach English In China (TEIC) Programme

The TEIC Programme is open to native English speakers from any country. If you are not a native English speaker, but can speak English fluently, you can also apply. We have had Germans, Dutch, Swedes and Poles on the programme.

TEIC is a small, friendly and non-commercial programme, offering a more personal travel experience. Your role, as a teacher, will be to provide English language conversational classes and correct students’ written work. The positions are in top-quality, vetted state schools, colleges or universities, in major cities e.g. Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Anshan, Urumqi, Shijiazhuang and Changsha. Many institutions recruit at least two English language teachers per year from the programme. However, if a school only requires one teacher you will be informed in advance.

The programme runs from August / September to June. The Fall semester runs until early January with a mid semester break but no Christmas break. There is a four/five week paid holiday for the Chinese New Year, in January/February. This is when the teachers go travelling within China or outside the country. The Spring semester, with a mid semester break of a week, finishes at the end of June. There are also a number of public state holidays. Many teachers delay their return in order to enjoy a further period of travel and others stay to teach a second year or start careers in China.

TEIC is run in conjunction with The China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE) [www.ceaie.edu.cn] in Beijing and the International Exchange Centre in Hunan Province. Professor Phil Thomas is the independent UK recruitment specialist and retired university professor.

CEAIE extensively conducts exchange and cooperation by working with educational and research institutions, academic bodies, exchange organizations and schools, as well as organizations, enterprises, foundations and individuals in other countries and regions who are enthusiastic for supporting educational development on the basis of principles of equality and friendship.

Affiliated to the Ministry of Education of China, CEAIE is a nationwide, not-for-profit organisation. It was founded in 1981 with the approval of the State Council of China. In 1991 it was registered with the Ministry of Civil Affairs and in 1994 was registered with the UN.

We also have a few full time positions in Kindergartens, Junior and High Schools. TEIC has placements throughout mainland China . We seek to place you where you want to work, at the age level you prefer and we can place friends and couples together.
