About us

Our aim is to place teachers with reputable and progressive schools, either physically or by teaching online. With offices in both the UK & China, we are ideally placed to provide you with ongoing support throughout your teaching career. We want to help you on your journey. 

Our team is made up of a mixture of skilled individuals, many of whom have taught extensively both online and abroad. Travelling to teach somewhere with a completely different culture or setting can be a daunting prospect. We know the pitfalls, frustrations and obstacles that teachers face. More importantly, we understand how support – and a personal touch – can make a world of difference.

Whether you’re an experienced EFL teacher looking for your next mission, or a newly qualified teacher looking for a reliable source of teaching positions, we will match your profile to the best opportunity. Our mission is to help and guide you from the moment you sign up.
