Community Starts Here!
Over our past 10 years in Shanghai we have developed a community atmosphere amongst our staff. With teachers from Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, UK, & the US we have become a diverse family and made lifelong friends. Living in Shanghai means there's always something fun to do and working at Giraffe means you always have people to do it with.
We love to travel! With a relaxed working schedule, you will have plenty of time to live out your dream vacations.
Teaching Starts Here!
Whether you have years of experience or this is your first time teaching we can help you develop professionally. When you first join the Giraffe team we get you up to speed with a personalized training process that is designed to get you comfortable with the curriculum before taking your own classes. We also offer ongoing training to help you develop into the best teacher you can be.
In addition to our primary classroom based courses we have created other courses like Speak Up, Write On, and Inspired Learning.
