With a population of over 1.3 billion and a renewed focus on English in schools, the demand for teachers is growing across the educational spectrum. Recruitment companies like Haida Interact International Company Ltd are emerging as big players when it comes to providing employment to teaching personnel, especially English teachers.
Combined with a handsome salary and rich cultural experience, teaching jobs in China can be great options for all types of teachers. Moreover, the country has a lot to offer in terms of culture, language, travel opportunities, and food. The eligibility conditions to teach in China are fairly accessible, as compared to other Asian countries.
Most of the recruitment companies in China, including Haida HR, offer jobs with minimal documentation. All one needs is a Bachelor’s degree or higher, a passport with validity of at least 6 months, Certificate of No Criminal Record and a fully completed application form along with a 2×2 inch photo. Other requirements include a relevant teaching certificate (120 hours and above) like TEFL. Experience is not required for Interns. However, full-time teachers are required to hold at least one year of teaching experience.
According to the teachers working in China, the institutions offer pretty lucrative salaries to English teachers. Earning an average $1,600 per month is no big deal in the Land of Dragons, especially if your employer provides or subsidizes your accommodations, as many will do. And if your application goes correctly, you can get a monthly salary of up to $3,000.
In the words of a teacher associated with Haida HR from last two years, working in China is no less than an awakening. “Recruitment companies like Haida are opening the doors to the unique and beautiful culture of China, which is still unexplored by many. I found it really intriguing. The best way to explore China without burning a hole in your pocket is to find a job there, and Haida HR helped me a lot in this,” she said.
She added further, “Today I’m getting a pretty good salary package, along with exploring China and its culture. During my initial days, I faced language problem. However, I’m picking new words everyday ever since, so that’s okay now.”
