Overview

To help potential and current organisations fully understand, the TEC (Teaching Experience in China) programme is a programme that allows new interns and teachers to smoothly transition life into Shanghai - allowing them to adapt to a new vibrant culture and surrounding.

TEC (Teaching Experience in China)

Orientation week – A week devoted to getting interns trained and comfortable in Shanghai. Practical experience – The rest of the internship is spent on gaining practical teaching experience and networking.

Teaching

The main point of this programme is to help teachers become fully qualified TEFL teachers after receiving training during the orientation week. They will be assigned to a school placement and gain 5 months teaching experience.

Experience

There are hundreds of activities and different cultures to experience in Shanghai. Although new interns and teachers may be living in a foreign country for the first time, this will accelerate their language learning and cultural appreciation.

China

Though Shanghai can allow foreigners to live a fairly westernised life, they can also truly experience the authentic China here. It is easy to find traditional restaurants, Tai Chi classes and even people playing Chinese chess in parks.

Our Partners

Shanghai Meiji cooperates with over 100 world or national class schools throughout Shanghai and across China.

testimonials

  • Janice Timm South Africa

    The job hunting process can be stressful, but not when you link up with a professional who has your best interests in mind. Linda Park is incredible. She helped me source a job with the exact criteria I had provided her with and kept me updated throughout the entire process. It was apparent from the beginning that her goal wasn't to fill any available position, but to find the perfect fit for me. Her attention to detail, responsiveness and support made finding and securing a job abroad a breeze. Shanghai Meiji went above and beyond what is normally expected from a recruiting agency. Thank you again Shanghai Meiji and Linda Park.

    Gary Fisher United Kingdom

    After leaving my old education company I registered with Shanghai Meiji. From the beginning I felt supported and was introduced to good roles in education in Shanghai. I secured a fantastic job within a week of registering with Shanghai Meiji and have been supported with the visa application procedures. Shanghai Meiji always has solutions when problems arise. I cannot recommend Shanghai Meiji and Linda enough.

    Michael Ellis Canada

    It is with gratitude that I am making this testimonial for Linda and Shanghai Meiji. I have had many negative experiences, with recruitment agencies in Shanghai. So, I was apprehensive when I was contacted by Linda about a teaching position. This is because many agencies look after the companies best interests. They don't care if the company is fair with its employees, or if they are honest. It's always about making a commission. With Shanghai Meiji, it is the complete opposite. They match the teacher with the best employment opportunities on the market. Satisfying both the teacher and the school is their top priority. Linda helped secure me the best position that I have had, in China. I couldn't recommend Linda and Shanghai Meiji more!

    After dealing with several sketchy agents, Stephan and his collegues were a breath of fresh air. Professional, friendly amd extremely helpful throughout the entire process. They listened to requirements and didn't waste any time in finding an ideal position for me. Recommended.

  • David United Kingdom

    Stephan was a great help throughout the recruitment process from the start, with a personal phone call to ask for all of my important details and requirements - to finish (and beyond) when he continued to help me with visa complications long after I had been hired! Could not be happier with the service I received. Thank you so much Stephan!

    Matt

    Hi everyone. My name is Matt and I'm just about to finish my one year contract with Shanghai Meiji. Almost a year ago I decided to sign up for the intern program and I can honestly say that I don't regret it. When I first came to them I didn't have much experience as an English teacher, didn't know much about teaching methods, especially how to teach English to young learners. To put it all together, I wanted to work as a teacher but all I could do was to speak English. After I signed up for the program, the first week they provided an efficient training session, which they explained how to teach small kids, how to react in different classroom situations and they helped us practice. The second week, I already got a job. Unfortunately, it didn't work out at my first job and guess what? Immediately, I got a second position. The second school was really great and I have been working there ever since. Throughout the year Shanghai Meiji provided all the support I needed the most and learning materials to help me along the way.

    Maggie

    Hi ! My name is Maggie . When I first came to Shanghai, I had no teaching experience at all. But after teacher training at Shanghai Meiji and their help through one year working together, now I am in love with teaching and also China. Shanghai Meiji was first step in my life in China. They provided great service and always helpful when I had difficulties in China. By the way, I have also met a lot of new friends and a loving husband.

    Sam

    The intern program helped me when I first arrived in China without speaking the language and had no idea how to gain my teaching skill. Wonderful trainer, Sarah at Shanghai Meiji started our trainings the first week. Shanghai Meiji helped me find an apartment, and got my Chinese sim card and also bank card. Every question I asked was quickly and professionally solved. If you ever think about teaching in China and wondering which agency to trust, you can choose Shanghai Meiji.

What Partnered Schools do we have?

Kindergarten Institutions located in Shanghai and Across China:


Many of our partnered institutions are international kindergartens. These schools are in high demand of mainly native English speakers. China has a growing interest in foreign education, and many Chinese parents are seeking to send their children to international kindergartens to give them an early advantage.

Middle and High Schools located in Shanghai and around China:


International middle and high schools are in huge demand in China, and therefore so are foreign teachers. With China becoming more prosperous, parents are increasingly sending their children to international middle and high schools that prepare their child with a unique set of skills and experiences for them to enter into the real working world or into further education.

Training Centres & Language Learning Centres located in Shanghai and across China:


As China is becoming increasingly open in terms of its economy and business, people are seeking to expand their businesses abroad. More than ever, more and more people are looking to study English both after school and in their free time, to provide them with the skills to communicate with the world's universal language, English. More and more training centres are now looking for qualified English language instructors to develop their students.
