Longman Schools Shanghai is currently holding interviews for a new teaching position. If you are looking to teach in a modern, professional school and have the abundance of energy and creativity to teach English to young learners then do read on.

Our school is equipped with modern facilities and up to date technology as well as a variety of course materials popular with both teachers and students. We currently have 17 campuses all across Shanghai, and are seeking to grow even more. As a Longman Schools teacher you will be assigned to a single location in which to teach mainly young learners aged 3 to 18 years old. Each student is placement tested on entering the school which means students studying together have the same level of English. Class sizes are kept small to ensure real progress is made.

At Longman Schools Shanghai we provide a challenging and supportive English Language learning environment that draws students and faculty together with a nurturing spirit in the pursuit of knowledge.


Shanghai – The city

Shanghai is the possibly the most vibrant city in world, but certainly the most exciting in China. From its famous skyline and it busy thoroughfares to its small lanes and neighborhoods; Shanghai has something to offer for everyone. Coming to Shanghai to teach English will be the most exciting time of your life, whether it's your first time away from home or a seasoned traveler, you'll find Shanghai a favorable destination. The streets are full of small boutiques. There are numerous temples to satisfy those who may be looking for peace and tranquility and bustling areas like People's Square will satisfy those who are engaged in people watching.

Shanghai was where China first met the West and it’s still a frontier town, obsessed with the latest fads, fashions and technology. But tucked between the shopping malls and the eye-popping modern architecture is the old Shanghai, where temples nestle down alleys, along with street markets and classical Chinese gardens. Shanghai is a city of stunning contrasts, where visitors can go from sipping a cocktail in a designer bar overlooking the Bund, to eating dumplings at a street stall, or gazing at a 10th-century Buddhist monastery, in the space of a few hours. Summer is hot and humid, winter can get cold, but Shanghai never stops.
