Getting a Teaching Job in China
Teaching English in China may be a terrific way for digital nomads to supplement their income while traveling, a great "gap year" for students, or a suitable full-time job for individuals wishing to live overseas permanently. Whatever your motive for moving overseas to teach English, we're certain you'll have a fantastic time.
Packing your belongings and relocating to Teach English in China may seem to be a hard process. What's to say it shouldn't? You're relocating to a strange country where no one speaks your language, the culture and traditions are absolutely different, and the cuisine is completely different!
However, if you accept that things will not be the same as they are at home, you will be able to appreciate the cultural shock. Isn't that the reason we all travel? Want to try something new?
Get Your TEFL/TESOL Certification
What exactly is this certificate? TEFL is an abbreviation for "Teaching English as a Foreign Language," while TESOL is an abbreviation for "Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages." This tiny piece of paper will not only help you find a well paid job in China, but it will also help you get valuable teaching experience.
We recommend getting your TEFL Certificate online. It's quick and simple. Look at numerous online courses such as business instruction, improving English skills, IELTS preparation, and courses for non-native English speakers.
Find a Reputable English School
It might be difficult to find teaching positions in China. It might be difficult to determine which recruiters to believe and which institutions to attend.
If you want to look for a career on your own and hire a recruiter, that's OK; just be wary of dishonest recruiters and colleges. Whatever path you choose, be sure you complete your homework and seek for internet evaluations and blog entries about the institution you've picked.
Apply for a China Working Visa ("Z").
This may be a difficult process. However, if you have planned to work at a recognized English school, they should be able to provide you with a great deal of support.
The steps are as follows:
1. Give your selected school all of the documentation they'll need to get your work visa. These papers include a copy of your passport, a copy of your university diploma, a TEFL certificate, and the results of your medical examination.
Once you've provided all of these completed forms to the school (by email is OK), they may begin working on your Invitation Letter and Work Permit application. They will email you the documentation once they are completed. This normally takes about 15-20 days.
Once you've received the Invitation Letter and Work Permit, carry these, together with the completed "Z" visa application form and your passport, to the closest Chinese Embassy in your home country.
A "Z Visa" (working visa) is essentially merely a document that allows you to enter the nation. After obtaining the Z Visa and entering China, you have 30 days to apply for and acquire your resident permit. You will also need to obtain a medical examination in China. Once you arrive, your school will assist you with all of this.
Get Ready to Move
We suggest chatting with someone who lives in the city where you will be relocating. After speaking with the academic manager or principal of your preferred school, get the email address of one of the present instructors.
Not only will this allow you to ask questions regarding the school, but it will also allow you to inquire about what items/amenities are accessible in the city and which are not.
