Do you have a fluent command of written and spoken Mandarin? Are you qualified to teach Chinese as a foreign language, or do you have relevant experience of teaching in a school or University setting? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience?

The Business Confucius Institute at the University of Leeds (BCI) promotes the understanding of Chinese language and culture in the UK, with a business focus on helping companies to communicate with Chinese customers more effectively. We are looking for enthusiastic and experienced Mandarin teachers to join our team for a fixed period to cover staff-shortages caused by international travel restrictions.

Our team of Mandarin teachers deliver engaging and effective Mandarin classes to University students, staff and members of the local community. The majority of courses take place at the University of Leeds but teachers also deliver classes in local schools and businesses.

You will be assigned specific courses with approximately 6-10 total teaching hours per week. Due to the nature of the role this will include some evening and/or weekend work. Additional hours may be available. According to current University guidance you will work remotely and teach classes online. Some face to face teaching is expected to resume in schools during this period, following government guidance.
