Is Training Centre Teaching Right for Me?

One of the main benefits of working in a Training Centre is the level and support of material available to help you create the most useful lessons. Training Centres are spaces where students can go in the evenings to learn the English language, outside of their school. Therefore, Training Centres are geared towards having all the material ready, as their sole focus is growing their student’s English ability.
Training Centres allow you to explore on the weekdays, and this is important. China has 1.6billion people, with everyone having the weekends off. Enjoy trips with ETravel club or explore the interesting sites of your city without the crowdedness.
With evening and weekend work, being an ESL teacher in a training centre is perfect for teachers who enjoy waking up when they wake up and spending their time socialising with their friends over brunch.

A Typical Week Teaching in a Training Centre

As an ESL teacher in a Training Centre, expect to work evenings and weekends, with two days off during the week. This means a typical schedule of 4 pm to 9 pm on three weekdays and 8 am to 6 pm for Saturday and Sunday. You’ll be teaching approximately 20 lessons a week, with all your other time planning and preparing. Although, lots of material, games and flashcards are already prepared, and the training centre may want you to follow a strict curriculum.

You’ll be sharing the learning of your students with your colleagues, parents and be providing the students with some work to do if your curriculum allows.
