Maple Leaf Educational Systems (MLES) is China’s largest private international K-12 school system and Canada’s first and largest offshore school system, offering a very pleasant Monday to Friday work schedule in a very collegial and professional setting. We are currently looking for energetic, enthusiastic ESL teachers to join the Maple Leaf Team for semester 2 positions starting mid-February. Teachers receive a competitive salary, annual return airfare, free accommodation, approximately 13 weeks of paid vacation, and more.

MLES opened its first school in Dalian, PR China in 1995. Our schools are now located in 21 cities throughout China. The continued expansion of Maple Leaf Educational Systems has increased our need for well qualified, TESL/TEFL certified ESL teachers.

Our school system includes private elementary and middle schools offering the Chinese national curriculum and high schools delivering the BC Global Education Program certified by the Ministry of Education, British Columbia, Canada. Underpinning student success in all of our schools is an extensive ESL program taught jointly by a team of internationally qualified ESL teachers and bilingual Chinese teachers. Due to the scope and size of Maple Leaf Educational Systems, working with Maple Leaf offers teachers the chance to work in a variety of locations and a variety of teaching environments from large school settings with more than 2500 students to start-up schools in new locations with fewer than 60 students.

Requirements:
• An undergraduate degree
• A minimum 100 hours of TESL or TEFL training from a recognized teacher training institution
• Two years of teaching experience is expected (some flexibility with this requirement may apply)
• For visa purposes, citizenship of applicant must be from a country that China identifies as a native English speaking country

Salary
Salary for fully qualified teachers is on a 4 step scale from $22,800USD to $30,000USD per year. New teachers hired under special permission with less than two years’ experience begin at Step 1 of the MLES ESL Teacher salary scale.

Workload
The ESL Teacher will be at the School from Monday through Friday, five working days a week. The school day is normally nine hours, including student supervision and a generous lunch break. The average teaching load for ESL Teachers is approximately 25 hours per week. In addition to instructional periods ESL teachers lead club activities, providing opportunities for informal English language learning and practice.

Benefits

Orientation
Maple Leaf gives first-time to Maple Leaf teachers an additional 3,000 (RMB) (taxable) in the first pay period to help offset the cost of initial living expenses incurred in moving to China. This allowance is for initial purchases of basic living necessities.

MLES provides up to $1,500USD for round trip airfare in each year of the contract from the negotiated 'point of hire' to the Chinese city in which the assigned school is located.
Vacation Entitlement
MLES provides a paid winter break of approximately 4 weeks and an approximately 6 week long summer break, along with one week in October and one week in May during Chinese national holidays.
