WHO ARE WE?
Aston English is the flagship division of The Aston Educational Group, which started in the city of Dalian in 1996. With over 120 Aston English schools throughout China, we have a location for everyone.
Whether you want the bright lights of Nanjing or Chengdu, the cultural hub of Xian, the amazing cuisine of Yinchuan, or the more relaxing atmosphere of coastal Weihai, we have schools in these locations for you and a lot more elsewhere. If you are unsure of what part of China would be a good fit for you we can offer plenty of guidance.
With over 20 years' experience bringing teachers to China, we at Aston understand that it is a big decision to move to a foreign country, which is why we support you every step of the way. From our friendly and knowledgeable foreign recruiters, to expert help throughout the visa process, then to being warmly welcomed at your arrival in the airport, you will never be left to fend for yourself.
Each year we hire a mix of experienced and inexperienced teachers. So if you are a recent graduate or do not have any teaching experience, do not worry. We can teach you what you need to know. All we ask for is that you have a willingness to learn and a genuine interest in teaching.
We want you to feel comfortable with making the move to China, so we are happy to put you in contact with some of our current teachers if you wish to hear of their experiences.
WHAT WE OFFER OUR TEACHERS
Low hours and various contract lengths
One thing we don't want (and I'm sure you don't) is for our teachers to come to China, only to have to work 40 hours a week and not get to fully enjoy the experience of being in China. This is why we offer 23 hour a week contract, which includes 3 days off. Giving you plenty of time to explore the city you are in, study Mandarin or do some travelling. Of course, if you wish to work more hours we also have the option of a 28 hour contract. Don't want to commit to a full year? No problem, come and try 6 months first.
While rent in China is not terribly expensive compared to western standards, the initial costs involved can be a hit to your wallet. With rent paid generally every 3 months, you are looking at having to pay 6000-9000 RMB in set up costs. Add to that the hassle of having to stay in hotels and search for an apartment, it is an unnecessary stress.
We prefer that you have a place to call home as soon as you land in China. So for that reason all our schools offer free accommodation, fully furnished with everything you need. Zero set up costs.
Training and professional development
We offer all new teachers our 28-hour TCERT training when they arrive in China. Our experienced teacher trainers will be able to fully prepare you to teach your first class through both practical and theoretical training. We have designed our own curriculum and books in house, so lesson planning is a breeze and takes minimal time.
Our goal is to provide you with a supportive environment and the guidance and training to allow you to continually develop your teaching skills.
