Trip overview

Our Teach in China trip combines both passions of teaching and travel into one. You’ll gain an internationally-recognised accreditation and be presented with the unique opportunity to have your own classroom of students as you embark on an unforgettable adventure to teach English abroad. Indulge in the delectable market cuisine, hike the Great Wall and mountain peaks and explore the ancient villages in one of Asia’s most diverse countries.

We offer the complete package for those wanting to teach English overseas and, best of all, we have partnered with exclusive local teaching organisations who can offer you an optional paid teaching placement upon completion of your TESOL course. You’ll be able to earn a local income, enjoy the comfort of convenient accommodation, or you can take your new accreditation with you to almost anywhere else in the world. Our team will help you with all the essentials you need to kickstart your journey to becoming an English teacher overseas, from visa assistance to bank account set up, cultural activities and excursions, local support and so much more.

Immerse yourself in a whole new culture, create lifelong connections and tick off incredible bucket list spots in between. This trip is perfect for anyone looking for direction or a new adventure and dreaming of broadening their horizons, travelling Asia and gaining international work & travel experience.

Trip itinerary

Week 1-4

Once you’ve touched down at Suvarnabhumi International Airport, your private transfer will take you into Bangkok for your initial in-country orientation, introducing you to Thailand and other teachers in training. You’ll be introduced to your TESOL classmates and trainers and taken to Hua Hin, where you’ll prepare to begin your 4 weeks of training before your optional teaching contract starts! You’ll get to experience the cultural orientation activities planned, such as joining a Muay Thai class, volunteering at Rescue Paws, a street dog rescue clinic, going on a tour of a local mountain-top temple, shopping for groceries at a nearby Thai market and using them in a traditional Thai cooking class. You’ll finish orientation with a beach barbecue where you’ll meet fellow teachers.  Upon completion of your TESOL course in Thailand and if you choose to be placed, you’ll be presented with a local teaching contract in China to begin in either semester one in February or semester two in August. 

Placement

Once you’ve touched down at Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK), our in-country partner will take you to your group accommodation where you will stay for your 4-day orientation before starting your placement.  You’ll get to experience some of the cultural orientation activities planned with fellow teachers before you start your placement, such as a tour of the Great Wall of China, a trip to the Olympic Park and Houhai Lake and a visit to Wangfujing’s night markets. 

Ongoing

You're well into the swing of your teaching experience! Each teaching placement generally receives school holidays off, giving you plenty of time to explore some of China’s astonishing temples, jaw-dropping mountains and towns, or jet off to a neighbouring Asian country. We’ll always keep in touch with you throughout your stay. If at any point during your trip you need advice or support, our team will be on hand to answer all your questions. Don’t forget you can jump on our social media pages too or buzz our 24/7 emergency support line for urgent matters.

Why should I book now?

Covid-19 threw us a curve ball and pretty much halted all travel. This means that we have a backlog of travellers, just like you, who are desperate to get out and explore the world! Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more! We recommend our travellers take 6-12 months to plan their trip for a reason - to make sure you’ve got everything organised perfectly, stress-free.

As a Global Traveller you’ll get exclusive access to gWorld, our personalised app where you can keep all of your important documents and trip details in one spot and gain insider access to everything Global. This is where you will find exclusive Marketplace Deals, a unique social network to connect you with other like-minded Global Travellers, access to our Academy with an ever-growing range of skills & languages, and so much more. Think all of your favourite apps merged into one, but like, better?

Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together!

But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join.

And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

What happens if COVID affects my trip?

If you have to make any changes to your departure date, you’re protected with our Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. With this, we will change your trip dates for free. If this doesn’t fit around you and you can’t go on your trip anymore, we will give you a 100% refund in the form of a Trip Credit with us (See terms). If you’re unable to use it, you can also transfer that credit to someone else for them to put towards any trip too.

If you’re affected by Covid-19 while you’re overseas, you will have all the support you need from our team or partners in-country as well as have access to our 24/7 Global Emergency Line. We recommend travellers purchase Global Travel Cover travel insurance that provides Covid-19 medical protection too.

Do I need to be vaccinated to book?

As border restrictions for countries begin to ease, being fully vaccinated will maximise the number of locations you can visit. So while you are not legally required to be vaccinated, and it’s also not a requirement to travel with us, it will limit some of the countries that you can visit and may make it harder to travel through over the next 12-18 months. We highly recommend our travellers look at the current travel restrictions of their destination, speak with a medical professional or get in touch with our team for travel advice.

What happens if I want to cancel my trip?

Our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility means you can change your trip’s start date up to 84* days before departure without incurring any charges when you rebook it for any time (or even any other trip) in the next 2 years from your original start date.

In the event that you want to cancel your booking altogether, if you give us over 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put towards booking absolutely anything travel related with your Travel Concierge within the next 2 years!

*Some select trips excluded, including Teach (Spain, Italy & Czech Republic) and USA (Summer Camp, Working Holiday and Hotel Professional), and others as listed in Booking Conditions.
