Xiamen is a beautiful and modern city with little winter to speak of. It has everything from a brand new subway system to beautiful beaches, and more college campuses than possibly any other city on earth. We offer a certificate of accomplishment in our TPP approach at the end of a minimum two-year term, (although the children spend three years in the program, and having one teacher for all three years is ideal).
The schools provide all necessary support to teachers with regard to life in China and the ability to speak Chinese is not required. We look forward to having the opportunity to address your questions and concerns! This need of kindergarten teachers in ongoing and growing. Please contact me at any time with questions. I will be happy to provide full and ample detail.
Teachers will first acquire a work permit from the Bureau of Foreign Experts here in Xiamen City. This is used along with a one-year work contract with our school to get the work visa, called the 'z' visa. We reimburse you for the cost of the visa. Details of this process can also be seen on the website of the Chinese Office of Consular Affairs in your region.
The cost of living in our region is lower, and it is safe to walk the streets anywhere and at all times. Teachers are respected and well treated. It is our hope that you will join us and stay on renewing your work contract with us year after year.
