A Team and A Family

Our International Talent Division (ITD) has teams dedicated to every aspect of your employment in China.  We employ foreign managers and teaching mentors to optimize our processes, mediate cultural issues, create a smooth and happy work life to ensure quality teaching and job satisfaction. Each teacher is assigned a dedicated recruiter, visa handler and case handler. These team members are responsible for teachers’ recruitment, visa handling, and work and life in China respectively. Working and living in China, whilst massively rewarding, can also be a bit of challenge, with many cultural, regulatory and organizational differences that can surprise or frustrate many foreigners. Stemming from our extensive experience in handling these challenges, we believe it is essential to provide foreign teachers with professional dedicated support to ensure they are comfortable and happy and able to do their best work.
