Main Duties

Gain Mandarin language skills and fast-track an international career by living and teaching in China.

The Teach China Graduate Program combines the development of practical teaching and personal development skills with pre-departure training and ongoing pastoral support.

Teaching English at a school in China, you will directly impact the lives of your students while honing presentation and leadership skills - all while earning a great salary, and with an apartment provided. On completion of the year-long program, you’ll have gained an exceptional insight into this fascinating country, and built an excellent foundation on which to progress your career path.

The program will enhance your global awareness, boost employability and diversify your experience. You’ll earn an excellent salary plus receive perks on top of this including an apartment or accommodation allowance, flight reimbursement, medical insurance, and airport pick up.

Locations include Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Chongqing, Fuzhou and more.

Pre-departure, all participants are invited to join our London Training Day, as well as a series of online training. On arrival, structured orientation and training is provided. You’ll also be able to join our mentoring scheme.

There will also be the opportunity to join Opportunity China’s ‘Graduate Progression Path’, following your year in China, offering Graduate Program alumni access to training with local UK Education Institutions to achieve formal teaching qualifications or access to, and application support for, top graduate corporate recruiters in the UK.
