English Teacher

Job description

We are a collection of training schools located in Chengdu, China, looking for any inspiring, creative people to join our superb teaching team.

We are rapidly expanding due to the high quality and unique style of our teachers and our passion for what we do. We want like minded individuals to join us and help us grow. Currently we have two schools; the main one located in central Chengdu, with another branch school about an hour away. Plans are also underway to expand to Yibin and Mianyang this coming year- exciting times are ahead!

Our goal is to open more schools, first across Sichuan and then across the whole of China and we’re looking for people who want to get involved in making this vision a reality. The most important element of the job simply entails our teachers to be enthusiastic and to enjoy being in the class just as much as your kids hopefully will!

At Brighter class sizes vary from 1, to a maximum of 7, with ages ranging from 3-12. During every class, a teaching assistant is there to help with any translation difficulties or anything else that may need doing. A willingness to learn on the job is a must as we want our teachers to bring their own unique styles and personalities to the classroom!

The second element of Brighter is our foreign teacher team. While some of the team do work within our training schools, the majority are placed at a one of our partner schools in Chengdu. We have several partner schools, all of which have a superb reputation and an even greater relationship with us. These schools range from private kindergartens right up to private high schools so whatever age you want to teach, we can cater to you!

Both at Brighter and the placement schools, our teachers continue to grow and foster unbelievable relationships with their students. This is one trait that we value highest amongst our prospective teachers; the ability to make a student not only excited to come to your class but also reluctant to leave.

Potential candidates do not need previous teaching experience, however this is obviously a bonus. Upon arrival in China, all of our teachers receive two weeks of top class training to get them ready for the classroom. We know that after these weeks you will be more than prepared to step into a job that you will love from the very first second!

Salary and benefits

Competitive salary: 10000-13000 rmb based on experience.

• Overtime pay and performance related bonuses
• City center apartment provided (or housing allowance if preferable)
• Signing on bonus of 2000 rmb upon arrival in China
• 1 year contract completion bonus of 3000 rmb
• Health & accident insurance
• Quarterly performance reviews, with salary increases based upon performance
• An amazing support network and team around you!
• LEARN CHINESE! – weekly lessons
• Opportunities to go abroad on our international summer camps (UK, USA etc).
• Team bonding trips to destinations such as Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore.
• 6 month or 1 year contracts available
• An excellent 2 week training program as soon as you arrive in the country to fully prepare you for the classroom!


• Bachelors degree or above
• 120 TEFL certificate
• Native English speaker (preferred)
