FAQs

1. How can I apply for a job?

Create a profile by entering your basic information, upload your CV and references, and we’ll contact you for an interview. After that, we’ll find you a job that matches your preferences and qualifications. Click here to fill in our online form so one of our team can give you more information.

2. What are the minimum qualifications for teaching jobs?

Typically, all you’d need is a university degree from an accredited university, and a 120-hour TEFL certificate. Specific requirements vary between certain schools and institutions, but a large amount of jobs require only these basics, and then they will train you to teach their own curricula. China typically can have more demanding criteria, as some schools require a minimum of 2 years teaching experience post-graduation.

3. How likely is it for me to find a job?

If you meet the minimum requirements, it is extremely likely that we will find you a job. If you have a valid passport, at least 2 years English teaching experience, and are between the ages of 23 and 35, you would have a great chance of getting a placement.

4. Do you offer free flights to my destination?

You will need to cover your flight cost initially, however, some employers do offer a flight reimbursement at the end of your 1 year contract.

5.Can we apply as a couple?

Yes! We have lots of couples apply together and get housed together (if you choose the accommodation we provide) so that’s not a problem at all, so long as you both meet the requirements.

6.Is there a maximum age for getting a job?

No. However, certain learning centers and schools do cater to younger teachers due to their physical setups and work environments.

7.Do I have to create my own lesson plans and curriculum for my students?

No you don’t! To make your transition even easier, lesson plans, work books, text books and curriculum have all been created already for you so you can focus on making your lessons as engaging and fun as possible for your students!

8. Is it difficult to get work visas?

The visa processes vary from city to city, but don't be daunted, we will be able to guide you through the application for each one in advance of you heading out and be on hand to answer any questions you have.

9.What’s the difference between getting a job through TIC and getting one myself?

We also have permanent in-country support to help you with anything whilst you’re over there, accommodation options available, comprehensive training (which you’re paid for) and a great social scene to help you get acquainted with other teachers.

10.How do you know schools and learning centers are reliable?

In order to get an account with TIC, schools are scrutinised very carefully. We interview them, contact current and former teachers who have worked there, and in many cases, we physically go visit them on a regular basis to meet with our clients and prospective clients. While it’s easy for teachers to find jobs through us, it’s not easy to become a client.
