Start with a worry-free trip to Taiwan

The Head Office team will make sure you’re completely taken care of during your trip to Taiwan. They’ll ensure you’re completely prepared with all the correct documents before you head to the airport. Once you land, you’ll be picked up at the airport and taken to your arrival hotel for some R&R. During your first week, the wellness officer will accompany you to get a health check, apply for your work permit, open a bank account and help find an apartment that meets your requirements.

A week of valuable training in Taipei City

Before you start teaching you’ll join a group of new teachers for our monthly training week at the Head Office. Training covers everything from managing and motivating students, to creating fun and engaging classes across a range of different ages. You’ll also get to see all our course books and how to use them effectively, as well as observe a few live classes with current teachers. Training will also touch on cultural differences, contract details, taxes, responsibilities, and expectations to ensure both new and experienced teachers fully understand the scope of the position, the organization and living in Taiwan.
