Have you thought of travelling the world after you graduate?
43% of all graduates deem travel and experience essential to their personal and professional development and 75% of employers recognise that graduates who have extensive travel and cultural experience are stronger applicants when applying for positions.

Most of us want to travel and see the world… but it costs money! The easiest way to travel AND earn a respectable salary is as an ESL teacher. English teacher abroad.

Echo Education are one of the largest education companies in China. We are a Chinese owned company and directly hire British graduates for our public schools in China. We’re not a referral agency but the direct employer who handle all work permits, transition arrangements and day to day welfare of more than 200 teachers already in China. In September 2018 Echo Education are hiring a further 350 British graduates for teaching positions in China.

"But I’ve never thought of teaching and my degree is in media..” ???
Well the great news is that we hire graduates from ANY degree discipline with any result from any British university. For 2018 and 2019 we're also offering a FREE TEFL scholarship programme worth £500. In order to teach English in another country, graduates must complete this short training course which usually takes one month.

“OK… tell me more…’???
350 successful applicants will transition to China in August 2018 and undergo further training and orientation. We offer full visa service in obtaining work permits and document notarisation. Our positions come with FREE ACCOMMODATION, FREE MEALS and FREE utility expenses.

“So where exactly will I be teaching?”
In May 2017 the Chinese government unveiled ambitious plans to put a British graduate in every Chinese public school on the east coast of China in order to help future generations of Chinese im-prove their English fluency. As you may know, China has opened up to global markets in recent years relying on the English language to facilitate their global connections.

The Chinese provinces of Zhejiang and Jiangsu contain the mega cities of Hangzhou, Suzhou, Ningbo and Nanjing. It’s with these 4 areas where the government particularly want to develop English programmes in public schools. These cities are fully developed with the latest technologies embedded in their infrastructure and populations larger than London. They are now international cities that have a global reach, focusing particularly on e-commerce and trade. The vast majority of our schools are based in these cities and we welcome applicants to review our city guides for more insight

“But I can’t speak Chinese..”???
Don’t worry! All your lessons will be taught in English and sometimes we have a local Chinese teacher to assist you if the children are very young. You will need to learn some Chinese for your day to day life.. we give you access to online resources and can help you arrange further tuition. Many teachers progress to achieve remarkable skills in speaking Chinese with some passing with HSK3 within one year. How much effort you put into learning Chinese is up to you.

“Do I have to teach children..”???
The majority of our positions are for Chinese public schools which include kindergarten, primary, middle and high schools. Ages of children will range from 4 years old to 18 years old. However we also have teaching positions available at universities and within business English schools for mature clients. We assess during training and interviewing which age group we feel the applicant is suited to.

“So… let’s talk money”
Remember we are not an internship, placement scheme or volunteering post. We offer fully bonafide jobs on watertight work permits.

Remember you receive FREE high-end accommodation with FREE meals and in many cases your electricity, WIFI, water and gas will also be paid. Flights will be reimbursed alongside the cost of notarising your degree. Your monthly salary will be between £1200 and £1500 (exchange rate depending).

Remember the cost of living is dramatically lower in China so teachers are left with significant disposable income every month. Most teachers will save a large amount of money and use it to facilitate wider travel around Asia in the holidays.

“Great… so how long are contracts”
We offer graduates a choice of either a 9 month or 22 month contract starting in September 2018. The 22 month contract offers a salary increase in the second year with additional holiday payments and contract completion bonus. We also have limited opportunities for March 2018 for applicants who have already graduated

We are now welcoming applications via our website www.echoteachers.com. Speak with one of our online advisors immediately.

This is a genuine and exciting opportunity to dramatically unlock the greatest adventure of your life.
