EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS BY TEACHING IN SHANGHAI

We are fully aware that there are plenty of less than reputable schools out there which is why all the schools we work with have been carefully screened. That’s where Panda Recruiting comes in. We carefully screen each and every school we work with. We mean it when we tell you, “We will only place you at a school we ourselves would work at (and often have worked at previously)”. Just as we do not accept just any teacher onto our programs, we have strict guidelines for which schools to collaborate with and have been working with most schools for a long time now and have received lots of positive feedback from current teachers.

Teach English in Shanghai to young learners

TEACH ENGLISH IN SHANGHAI TO YOUNG LEARNERS

There is a huge demand for English teachers to teach young learners in Shanghai. Typically, in a training center, you will be teaching all the age groups from 3 years old to 18 years old. Working in a training center is a great option for new teachers who don’t have any formal teaching experience.  A lot of experienced teachers/licensed teachers who just started to teach abroad also start their first job in a training center to get a taste of how it feels to teach in another country. 

TEACHING ENGLISH IN SHANGHAI TO ADULT LEARNERS

Adult training center or University positions allows you to teach adult learners in Shanghai. Generally speaking, a bachelor degree, a 120 TEFL certification and a clear background check qualify you to get a University teaching position in Shanghai. The working schedule at a University is pretty tight as there are no office hours required. But the pay is about half of the average salary in an adult training center.
