China TEFL programmes​

Qualified TEFL teachers

For our TEFL China teacher programme, we work with trusted, long-term partners in China - The government supported Sichuan Education Association in Chengdu offers a wide range of placements in public schools (everything from public kindergarten to Universities). The advantage working in a public school is: Usually fewer working hours from Monday to Friday and weekends off. But in general, public pays less than private. Teaching English is an exciting and serious job requiring dedication, cultural flexibility, organisation, respect, creativity, enthusiasm and professionalism. 
We also offer placements in private schools. You can expect a higher salary than in public schools but in general, you are also expected to work longer hours and sometimes weekend. 

It all depends on your (career)plan. Please contact us and we will advise and discuss the best option for you.

Paid TEFL internship​

You are a fresh graduate with a TEFL or TESOL certificate? You want to teach English in China? No experience? Or you just want to see whether teaching English abroad is for you? And you don't want to commit for a whole year?


Then the paid TEFL / TESOL internship is the perfect first step for you into teaching English abroad. It gives you valuable teaching experiences while making friends from all around the world and allowing you to explore China in a unique way.

This TEFL internship allows you to get a comprehensive understanding of Chinese culture and language as well as living independently and develop personal and professional skills.

Review - China TEFL 

Jessica Zier

Overall, this has been a really great experience and I do not regret coming at all. The teaching has really built my confidence up and I no longer fear speaking to a crowd. We have been well looked after by TOFU education and the school. The money the internship gives easily covers the cost of food with some left over to do local exploring on weekends. Although the language barrier can be hard at times, there is definitely something peaceful about not being able to understand what people are saying around you! I will leave China with fond memories and I am sure that I will quickly miss the friendliness of people and the delicious food that I get to eat everyday.
