Requirements to Teach in China
We work with a great number of reputable private schools in China, however, our teachers must meet the following requirements laid out by the Chinese State Administration for Foreign Expert Affairs. There are different procedures for various nationalities and for different locations around China.
Teachers must meet the following requirements to teach in China:
A Bachelor’s degree
Two years of post graduate work experience
A TEFL Certification (120+ hours). Some schools will still accept a 100-hour certificate, but 1st-tier cities like Beijing and Shanghai require at least 120-hours of TEFL training.
A clear national Criminal Background Check
A clean bill of health from your doctor in your home country. You’re also required to do a second health check in China
First-tier cities like Beijing and Shanghai require classroom based TEFL certifications or combined TEFL certificates that include online and classroom hours. If you are unsure about a TEFL course, go with a TEFL provider that will provide you with a certificate that does not have ‘online’ stamped across the front of it. Your 12o TEFL hours must be listed on the same certificate. The Chinese government will not accept multiple certificates from multiple courses.

18-25 in class teaching hours per week
10-15 office hours per week. This will primarily be spent in the preparation of lesson plans
