TEC Programmes

Teaching Experience in China Programmes
We have four teaching programmes that are designed for TEFL teachers with different requirements.

5 Months Internship Programme

TEFL graduates who would like to teach but do not have the relevant experience and, in many cases, do not have a Bachelor’s degree. This programme will allow them to experience what teaching is like in China and provide them with opportunities and teaching experience.

5+ Placement Programme

This programme is designed for TEFL graduates who want to teach but do not have relevant experience and, in many cases, do not have a Bachelor’s degree. They would like to stay in China longer but need more initial guidance and support. After the 5 months internship, we will assist teachers in seeking employment. They will gain practical teaching experience to prepare them for the 12 months placement.

5+7 Placement Programme

This program is targeted to those graduates with 2 years working experience including a 5 months internship and 7 months follow on official work at a school in China. While on the internship and teaching program, you will gain practical teaching experience to prepare you for the 7 months official work.

Teacher Programme

This programme is designed for teachers who are TEFL qualified and have obtained a Bachelor’s degree. They must be confident about teaching and living independently in China.



To help potential and current organisations fully understand, the TEC (Teaching Experience in China) programme is a programme that allows new interns and teachers to smoothly transition life into Shanghai - allowing them to adapt to a new vibrant culture and surrounding.

TEC (Teaching Experience in China)

Orientation week – A week devoted to getting interns trained and comfortable in Shanghai. Practical experience – The rest of the internship is spent on gaining practical teaching experience and networking.


The main point of this programme is to help teachers become fully qualified TEFL teachers after receiving training during the orientation week. They will be assigned to a school placement and gain 5 months teaching experience.


There are hundreds of activities and different cultures to experience in Shanghai. Although new interns and teachers may be living in a foreign country for the first time, this will accelerate their language learning and cultural appreciation.


Though Shanghai can allow foreigners to live a fairly westernised life, they can also truly experience the authentic China here. It is easy to find traditional restaurants, Tai Chi classes and even people playing Chinese chess in parks.

Our Partners

Shanghai Meiji cooperates with over 100 world or national class schools throughout Shanghai and across China.

Not only were they thorough in their interviewing me, but they also placed me at a center which was so welcoming, high-spirited, and filled with people who were dedicated to fulfilling their duties. The hiring process overall was extremely well-rounded and I could not be happier with the result!

  • I have been collaborating with Shanghai Meiji not for a long time. However, I absolutely satisfied with their work. I moved to Shanghai six months ago and immediately started to looking for a job. This agency was advised me by one of my friends, who insisted upon sending my CV. And how I was surprised when they replied me next morning and Jason invited me for an interview. In one day they found for me the most suitable option, just near my home. I am happy to advise everyone to Shanghai Meiji!

    Foreign Teacher

    Jason and his team showed great efficiency and care during the interview process and the continued follow up, which is much appreciated. There are inevitable communication challenges in China which they dealt with professionalism. I would highly recommend them to new teachers in China. Thanks again!

    Foreign Teacher
  • Part of the reason my family and I came to Shanghai was to seek new opportunities. I quickly realized that teaching was a good option for me. Being a member of LinkedIn would have me be introduced to Jason. Once I saw some of the jobs that Shanghai Meiji was promoting, I knew I had found a company that could probably help me. One job in particular stood out to me ended up being the one that I accepted. I would highly recommend this company to any foreigner looking for a job, because, they respect you, and have your best interest at heart.

  • Though I didn’t have a chance to attend the Shanghai Meiji Job Fair, I was elated to send in my video as I saw this as a great chance for exposure. I saw this as an opportunity, a chance, and an attempt to put myself out there and reap whatever benefits may come from self-promotion. I’m looking forward to hearing back from potential employers with whom I can share my talents and expertise.

    Foreign Teacher

    I could not even expect how fast this agency will assist me in finding a good job in Shanghai. From the fist day of my applications I have been called to job interview.
