Jobs

With over 300 foreign teachers currently working in our 110 Aston English schools in China, we have a great team in place that are experienced in helping make the transition to China as smooth and stress free as possible for new teachers.

If you have made the decision to come and teach in China, by now you have probably realized just how big of a country it really is and how many options are available with regard to which city you choose to live in. While cities like Beijing and Shanghai are definitely worth a visit, we have found that “smaller” Chinese cities often have much more to offer.

We have schools in a number of fantastic Tier 2, Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities.

Do you like being near the coast? It’s hard to beat cities like Dalian, Yantai, Weihai and Xiamen.

Are you a foodie? The historical and culturally rich city of Xian has some of the best street food in China. They know how to do a decent bowl of noodles there.

Have you ever been on a camel ride in the desert? Well funnily enough you can do that in Ningxia province. The capital city, Yinchuan, is particularly great (amazing BBQ).

So why choose a 2nd, 3rd (or even 4th) tier city?
• It’s Cheaper
Practically everything is cheaper. Food, transport, entertainment, accommodation etc. While salaries are generally higher in the likes of Beijing, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, the cost of living is also higher. Not only that, but there are far more opportunities to spend your money due to these cities being quite modern and westernized. Smaller tier 2 and tier 3 cities enable you to save quite a bit of money.

• The locals are generally friendlier and more helpful
You will find friendly locals wherever you go in China, but from our experience it’s something you come across more often in smaller cities. People here don’t see westerners as often and really do go out of their way to make you feel welcome. One of teachers commented on how is favorite local restaurant translated their entire menu into English, just for him.

• Less pollution, less traffic and less people.
This is pretty self-explanatory.

• Experience real China
There are a LOT of foreigners in 1st tier cities. Even the locals are much more westernized. This can make it harder to immerse in to the Chinese culture and see the real China. Yes, some people want that. However, you risk getting sucked into your own little ‘foreign bubble’. It’s important to put yourself outside of your comfort zone. This way you’ll make more Chinese friends, learn more mandarin and have some great stories to tell.

What Aston can offer you
• Free accommodation
All of our schools offer a free apartment. So there are no expensive set up costs associated with renting your own apartment.

• Plenty of free time
Our 23-hour contract offers teachers a good balance between work and having the opportunity to make the most of being in China. With 3 days off every week you will have plenty of time to do the things you want to do.

• Training and Career Development
We offer all of our new teachers 4 days training upon arrival. Whether you’re a new or experienced teacher, we’ll make sure you are ready for your first Aston class. We have developed our own curriculum and books, and provide teachers with all the teaching materials they could need, including interactive whiteboards.

If you plan on staying in China a bit longer, we have many management opportunities available. All of our current foreign managers started off as teachers with Aston.

Want to speak with some of our current teachers? No problem, we can arrange that for you.

Who we are looking for:
• Passport holders from the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland.
• A university degree in any subject
• Clean criminal record
• A genuine desire to live abroad
• Good communication and interpersonal skills.
• Enthusiastic and fun loving
• Flexible and adaptable

School Information

Aston English

Aston English Aston English is the flagship division of The Aston Educational Group. Aston English started in the city of Dalian in 1996. From the humble beginning of a single school it has flourished into one of the largest ESL operators in China with over 120 schools in 70 cities across 22 provinces. Locations We have schools across the whole of China, from Inner Mongolia to Guangdong, Xinjiang to Jiangsu. This gives teachers a choice as to the kind of lifestyle they want when they come to experience China. We currently have schools in 7 of the top 20 cities for foreigners to live in China as voted in International Talent Magazine. Curriculum & Syllabus We have spent many years developing our own curriculum and syllabus. Our primary focus is on spoken and listening English with reading and writing as a secondary. Teachers will have full support with regard to text books. They are given a Teacher’s guide, Text book and Workbook for each level that they are responsible for teaching Class Levels We have two level sets, Kindergarten and Pre School levels and then Primary school through to High school levels. Training and Development Along with our students, teachers are our priority. We have spent much time and resources on teacher development and foreign teacher support. We have central and regional offices overseeing all our franchisee and company schools. Most locations have foreign managers and a line of support to promote fairness and clear communication to break through cultural barriers and reduce misunderstandings. We understand the dynamics of working within a multicultural environment and do our best to make our teachers time in China as comfortable as possible and their experience enjoyable and extraordinary. Before teachers start their contract they go on a 2 day training course called TCERT training. This is an induction and orientation course where the newly employed teachers are introduced to the course books and materials they will be using during the course of their employment. They will also have the opportunity to share ideas in workshops and do practice classes to get them warmed up and some initial classroom experience. Teacher development is very important to Aston. During the course of a teacher’s employment they will have the opportunity to request coaching or observe peer classes to help them improve or develop as teachers. Classroom Environment Currently Aston English is undergoing an upgrade. We have our traditional Aston English Schools and then we have what is called Aston 3.0 which utilizes interactive whiteboards, activity rooms where children can use and develop their English in real life situations while also stimulating their creativity.

Est. In 1996 45+ Teachers
