PROGRAMME DETAIL

3 Month / 10 Month (with optional PE, Sport or Performing Arts support)

For people with a sporting bias, there are opportunities to coach, teach and assist PE teachers in lessons and extra-curricular activities. Join China at the rebirth of its football campaign – or – support with a favourite sport of your choice. Chinese PE teachers are also used to working with large groups. Your help will be invaluable in developing a high-quality PE and Sport offer for the school. However, this is not compulsory – and is not an expectation of applying candidates.

A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM COMPANY DIRECTOR, ROB WALDEN

Hello, and thank you for scrolling down this far.

I thought I would write a personal message to you as you’ve managed to get this far. I’ve been working with Chinese schools for some twelve years, and I have to say that China is the most intoxicating, magical place I’ve ever traveled to. It’s still full of mystery and the country and its people never cease to amaze me. For a country with so many stereotypes attached to it, this is a wonderful opportunity to see what it’s truly like….close to the ground, close to the people.

This programme is truly unique…the focus on the spoken word means it’s more accessible to a wider range of graduates because the aim is to get Chinese kids understanding the basics of how we speak, as well as the idioms and quirks of the language, intonation and pronunciation – rather than getting too bogged down in heavy-duty grammar. We know this is important, but they already have teachers working on that. Let’s be honest, little happens these days without some kind of verbal interaction between people, and with English being the language of choice for so many countries now, China is playing catch-up with their ability to converse.

We’re also pleased and proud that the Chinese are now looking more to the UK for English speakers. For a long time now countries such as Russia, Australia and USA have led the way with English language in China and it’s now time for ‘English English’ to have their chance.

The school placements are unveiled once we are satisfied that we have done all possible background checks and quality assurance with schools in China. So, if you’re interested, please do drop us a line to say ‘hello’, even if your dream programme is still on countdown and we can soon get things moving for you.

This may feel a little different from other job applications, but our belief is that this is a process not a formality, and the fewer barriers you have to getting to the detail the better. We also believe that we will find out far more about you from this type of approach than if, in the first instance you have to be super-formal.

If you have a CV or LinkedIn account, please do send it of course, but don’t let that stop you from making initial contact through our easy to complete application form.

With all our best wishes,

Rob Walden
Director
