One government school teacher URGENTLY needed near Dongying, Shandong Province, China.

Posted By: Golden Bridge <goldenbridge_adam@outlook.com>
Date: Saturday, 4 January 2014, at 2:21 p.m.

Our school, Golden Bridge Training Centre (GBTC) of Shengli Oilfield, has close connections with the local Education department. We provide Oral English teachers to various primary and middle schools in the Dongying and Yellow River mouth region. Dongying is a modern city located close to the famous Yellow River mouth; traditional villages also surround the city. It is only 5 hours by bus or a quick 45 minute flight to Beijing; we also have daily flights to Shanghai, less than 2 hours. Flights to Dalian and Chongqing have also recently started.

With a history of over 10 years, GBTC has previously employed a number of foreign teachers, many of whom have stayed multiple years, including myself (I am currently serving my 3rd year in Dongying with GBTC). We focus on providing interesting and enjoyable classes to young learners between the ages of 6 and 16 years.

A teacher who was due to start this February had to return home for personal reasons and cannot join us until Summer. As a result we are now urgently seeking a new teacher to join our team of 12 Foreign Teachers starting in mid to late February. Ideally you will have teaching experience in China, another foreign country or even in your own country. A degree in any discipline is required, TESOL or equivalent certification is also desirable and/or previous teaching experience is also welcome.

An ability to plan and deliver classes which encourage student participation is essential. For teachers who have limited experience we will provide ongoing training to assist with your own growth as a teacher. A Chinese assistant is also provided for each class.

This position is not located in the city of Dongying itself, but it is in a beautiful small town called Hekou (meaning 'river mouth' in Chinese) which is around 30-40 minutes from the city of Dongying. Even though Hekou is a smaller town, it has all the modern conveniences like supermarkets, great restaurants and plenty of outdoor markets selling fresh produce and other goods. The accommodation we provide is located in a friendly community (where the previous teacher made a lot of local friends) and is within a 5 minute walk of the school you would be working in. It is an ideal place to live for a teacher who really wants to soak up Chinese culture and/or learn Mandarin.

The school itself is one of the nicest primary schools in the region. It is relatively small for a Chinese school so the classes are smaller too and the students themselves are friendly, inquisitive and extremely happy to have a foreign teacher!

We are happy to provide telephone numbers and e-mails of teachers living in Hekou right now (we have 3 there at the moment) so you can talk to them and ask any questions you have about life in Hekou or about the school itself.

The hours for this position will be Monday to Friday with 4 or 5 classes per day spread between morning and afternoon (with 2 and a half hours for lunch in between). Each class is 40 minutes and there are NO office hours to complete. Overtime and extra classes are also sometimes available if you want them.

The salary range is 6500-8000 Yuan per month which is negotiable depending on your experience and qualifications. The cost of living in Hekou is very low, and many of our teachers are able to save a good portion of their salary each month.
The school also provides a free private apartment, utilities, computer with internet, a free Chinese class every week for those who would like to study and a dedicated foreign teacher to assist you with settling in and during your stay. Medical and accident insurance is provided for all our teachers. We will also enjoy regular outings to show you around the local area. Our teachers also enjoy a 4-5 week winter break and around 2 months in summer plus other standard Chinese public holidays. An airfare allowance (8000 Yuan) is paid at the end of a 1 year contract.

To apply please e-mail your resume, a brief covering letter, references and your passport information page plus a recent photo to Adam Lunn on this address:
