START consulting deals with state owned schools that are much larger than the public schools in countries where we are from. For example, a small school would have 3500 pupils on the register! Despite the size of the schools, they are all very personable and generally pleasant places to work. Class size ranges from twenty to fifty pupils and you usually work with at least two other foreign teachers at the school to deliver the ESL program. Having two colleagues would be rare however as our schools can have up to thirty foreign teachers on staff! Additionally, most schools have a Chinese national on staff to assist foreign teachers with day to day details (buying food, where to shop, etc.) until they become accustomed to life in China.
Individual job specifications may vary depending on the school. If you are interested in our program, specific details can be presented when we discuss a contract offer.
