Requirements to Teaching in Beijing
We work with a great number of reputable private schools in Beijing, 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 Beijing.
Teachers must meet the following requirements to teach in Beijing:
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.
First-tier cities like Beijing and Shanghai are now leaning strongly towards 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.
