Details of Position
Students at Shane English School Beijing are broken up into two age groups: Very young learners (3-6 years old) and young learners (7-12 years old). The classes are all manageable sizes with a maximum of 10-12 students. Teachers work a maximum of 20 hours a week but enjoy a guaranteed salary for the weeks when they work less than 20 hours.
There is a tailored curriculum for teachers to follow, and all teaching guides, materials, and resources will be provided by the school. There will also be a teaching assistant in every class to assist with preparing activities, checking books, and maintaining order in the class.
Training, support, and development:
Previous teaching experience is not essential as all new teachers will undergo a week of initial training. This training will be conducted by the Academic Manager or Director of Studies to ensure all teachers are completely comfortable and confident in teaching the Shane English curriculum. Workshops will also be held throughout the year to help teachers develop their skills, while the Academic Manager may observe some classes to provide feedback on areas of improvement.
Accommodation and orientation:
All new teachers will receive full assistance in the process of getting settled in Beijing. A member of staff will be assigned to help the new teachers find suitable accommodation close to the school, sign contracts, open a bank account, and anything else the teacher may need to get completely settled in Beijing. As Beijing can be an expensive city to get settled in, new teachers may request an interest-free loan from the school.
What the teachers are saying about Shane English School Beijing:
"I've worked as a teacher for Shane English Schools in Beijing for three years now, and it has been a thoroughly positive experience from beginning to end. I feel very fortunate to have worked in such a friendly, supportive and professional environment.
The other members of the team have always made my life and work much easier. They helped me to settle in when I first arrived, and have continued to support me over the course of my time here. Whenever I have questions or concerns about my classes, I feel comfortable knowing that our Director of Studies is always on hand to offer guidance and support. The TAs are friendly, hardworking and eager to help you in class as much as possible.
There are complete course guides for all of our courses, there are textbooks and tests ready to be used, and there is a wide range of teaching materials readily available, from books and flashcards to toys and stationery. With all of that taken care of, you're free to focus on making your lessons as effective and fun as possible.
As for the students themselves, they range from kindergarteners to young teens and they're a delight to work with. Its been immensely rewarding seeing my students learn and grow over the three years I've known them.
I couldn't have asked for a better place to work for the last three years, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shane English Schools to anyone looking to teach in Beijing."
Salary and Benefits
All teachers will receive an 18,000 RMB monthly salary, a flight reimbursement of up to 4,500 RMB, 22 days paid holiday, an end of contract bonus of 4,000 RMB, health insurance, an arrival hotel for the first week, and all visa costs in China will be covered by the school.
