Details of Position

12-month TEFL Position in Zhangjiakou, Hebei, China (bordering Beijing and a venue for the 2022 Winter Olympics!) with Junction Educational Consulting. Multiple positions available. 10000 to 18000 RMB/month

Junction Educational Consulting is a joint British-Chinese education start-up run by twenty-something graduates from the University of York and UBC Canada. We are looking for multiple English teachers with an interest in education and Chinese culture to work on a range of exciting projects in Zhangjiakou, Hebei, China.

No previous teaching experience is required (although it is preferred), but applicants must be native-level speakers (and due to China's visa regulations, applicants must hold a passport from the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa.)

Example job responsibilities

Assisting high-level English speakers practise for their IELTS examination
Taking part in a primary school English summer camp
Creating an immersive English environment for middle-school students
Planning and recording videos and podcasts to be shared on social media
Helping students to select universities and write personal statements
Giving presentations to hundreds of students in a local middle-school
Acting as a judge on a show for local television

How to apply:

Applications should include a cover letter and up-to-date CV
Successful applicants will be invited to a Skype interview
Previous teaching experience is not necessary, but may help with your application
All applicants invited to interview, successful or unsuccessful, will receive feedback on their application to help with personal development
September start date (can be discussed if September is an issue)

Applicant requirements:

The job is open to university graduates with a native-level command of English and a passport from the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa (Chinese law)
No previous teaching experience is required, but could help an application stand out
Applicants should be willing to step out of their comfort zone and undertake challenges while living in China

Why choose us?

Varied and exciting role
We have students ranging from 2-year-old children, through 20-something students right up to retired volunteers who might not want us to state their age!
Beyond the usual ESL classes, we have many events and projects such as English corners, speeches at schools, corporate training, charitable initiatives, delivering training to local teachers and many more!
One day you could be teaching in a nursery, the next delivering training at an international company and the next acting as a judge on a show for local television

Genuine understanding and care
All schools say they can offer support and assistance upon moving to another country, but how many of them match your expectations?
With a British owner who has been through the process of moving to China himself, we understand what foreign teachers expect and need upon arrival in China
24-hour emergency support is available along with help with all the daily essentials

Orientation week
3-day tour of Beijing upon arrival (including the Great Wall)
Introduction to Chinese culture
ESL teacher training
Team building and activities

Mandarin Chinese programme
Teachers will receive a free immersive 8-week Mandarin Chinese language programme and a chance to take the globally recognised HSK Chinese test (currently boasting a 100% HSK 1 pass rate!)
A combination of experienced teachers, language exchange partners and an immersive environment will have you speaking Chinese in no time
After the 8-week programme, language classes will be continued throughout the contract, with opportunities to take higher levels of HSK tests

Location details:

The internship is based in Zhangjiakou, Hebei Province, China
Zhangjiakou is 100km northwest of Beijing (easily reached by train with a 50-minute high-speed train opening this year)
Zhangjiakou has some great ski slopes and will co-host the 2022 Winter Olympics with Beijing
Zhangjiakou is known for its fresh air, sunshine and blue skies (no pollution!)
Although it has over 4 million residents, it is still a small city by Chinese standards and has a slower pace of life and very low living costs

Review:
Cameron Ferguson, Yale University, Intern, Summer 2017:
Shout out to my (now former!) boss Harry Wisdom for an incredible internship the past four weeks. He took someone barely brave enough to speak up in section and gave me the courage to talk to hundreds of students on local Chinese TV. He also shared with me some of the keys to being a great teacher, and I hope I'm on the path to getting there. Genuine people like Harry, who have taken the risk of building an education start-up in a developing country, have strengthened my belief that private education at its best is about more than just making money.

10,000 to 18,000RMB/month after tax (dependent on experience and qualifications)
