All Year Round Start Date Option

This option is completely separate to China 2018, China 2019, and so on. On the All Year Round Start Date option, you will likely be placed at a private language centre, as opposed to a public school. Language centres take teachers all year round, unlike public schools, which tend to hire only in August/September. Occasionally however, there is an option to work at a public school on this option.

We need about 8-10 weeks to get you out to China (from date of application). If you want to get to China quicker than this, let us know, and we will deal with it on a case by case basis.


The support fee for this option is £379. All other costs remain much the same as China 2019 – Please click here for details on those costs:


Applicants on this ‘All Year Round Star Date‘ option do not do the same TEFL as our August start applicants. They do an alternative 120-hour online TEFL qualification instead (before heading out to China). They do not attend any physical training camp in China before their placement. Why? We need a big group of applicants to do the physical TEFL training in Beijing. We can’t arrange it just for one or two people on their own. It wouldn’t make any sense. As with the August start option, there is no additional cost to you for the TEFL qualification on this option.

According to Chinese regulations, all applicants on this option must have a university degree (bachelor or equivalent), be HIV negative, and have no criminal record.

Those interested in this option are advised to contact us directly (by phone or email on the information below), for further information. Please state that it is the all year round option (and not China 2019) that you are interested in when you first contact us.
