Paid Program Overview

December 9, 2010Paid Program, Programs

If qualified, applicants may apply for our paid teaching program (as opposed to the volunteer program). 

Paid positions are only open to applicants possessing a BA/BS degree.

Paid positions also require a commitment to teach for one full academic year (September-July). However, our volunteer program is available to native English speaking applicants with or without a degree.

A TESOL certification course will be taken upon your arrival in China. This course will last approximately five days. This is mandatory for all teachers with less than two years of experience since receiving their degrees.

Paid teachers typically teach around 20 hours a week with a two day weekend (usually including Sundays). Positions are available in K-12 schools as well as colleges and universities. 

Paid teachers staying for a one year contract report earning more than $7,750 after deducting their upfront costs.
