Company Info

Now EF Suzhou has five schools which are located in SIP West, SIP East, SND, and Wujiang District. We are currently accepting applications for kids' teachers as we expand our fourth school in Wujiang District, and open more thereafter: teachers who are committed to their individual student's development and working with their parents to improve their learning experience.

EF Suzhou's Core values include a passion for teaching, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a desire to learn. We have developed a collaborative foreign-management style and have worked hard to ensure the cross-cultural teams work well together in a happy and supportive environment. Peer observations and workshops are encouraged across departments with the objective to help us all be the best that we can.

Teachers looking to work for academic excellence are most welcome and will enjoy the experience. There are real career opportunities for those wishing to stay and grow with the company into management positions, and drive it to be the best private language school in Suzhou, with possible bursaries for qualifications such as the Cambridge CELTA and a mini MBA.

Our schools are modern, well equipped, and progressive with IWBs in each room and school-wide WiFi. Classes are based on EFs own syllabus and textbooks, and lesson plans and materials are provided.

We teach small classes of students, mainly children as young as 3 years old to teenagers. This breadth and variety of students give our teachers a great opportunity to develop into well-rounded, experienced professionals.

In addition, we offer a continuous teacher development program of training, observations, and workshops. We greatly value our more experienced members of staff and encourage them to become involved in this.

There’s always someone on hand to offer some teaching advice and support, or to go and grab a bite to eat with; and there are many foreigners living and working in Suzhou and we are well catered for by famous brand restaurants, supermarkets, and shopping malls.

There are a fantastic support system and network of both foreign and Chinese staff, meaning that our team is fully provided for in terms of both professional development and social opportunities. Teachers are never short of help and support at work, or of company and a full social life outside of work.
