SK Royal English is a well-established English language training centre that provides language learning to children aged 3-14. Our company HQ is in Guangzhou, but we have franchises and affiliated kindergartens all over China. We are rapidly expanding and therefore always on the lookout for new teachers. At the moment we employ more than 180 international teachers, and we have over 20000 students enrolled. We’re also interested in qualified Teacher Trainers.
We believe that children best learn in a positive and stimulating environment where they are treated as learners, but also as: still children. That is why our successful teaching builds on communicative teaching methods that incorporate many elements of game play, physical movement and activity: children learn best through enjoying themselves! But while we believe in a warm, inclusive classroom atmosphere, we also expect a lot of our learners, and we help them set specific goals. We believe that in educating children, the aim is for child, teacher, school and parent to reach these goals together.
SK adopts the British Teaching Standards, uses the British textbooks, And follows the British Language Testing Systems. Namely London Trinity GESE and Cambridge ESOL. Under such framework, we provide over 38 types of courses to children aged from 2 to 14. As one of the most professional&authoritative Young Learners’ English Training Centers in China.
SK was introduced from the UK in 2009. and now with over 55 centers and affiliated kindergartens all around China, We have successfully employed over 100 international teachers and 50000 students enrolled.
Since developing rapidly, we are always on the lookout for new teachers. In order to ensure a systematic Career development for all SK teachers I’d like to briefly introduce about the SK Teaching Development System.
At SK, most teachers, either experienced or in-experienced get started from three basic positions, Local Teachers, Foreign Teachers and Mentor Teachers. Each development path includes different stages&levels. For local teachers, there are 4 stages and 7 levels, as for foreign teachers, there are 3 stages, Preliminary, Intermediate and Advanced and for mentor teachers, there are 3 stages and 5 levels. Each year, teachers will upgrade onto the next level after the National Teacher Assessment by SK Education Academy. Each higher level comes with a better package and welfare.
SK has specific criteria to judge whether a teacher should upgrade to the next level, in terms of Teaching Results, Teaching Service, Teaching Skills, and Teaching Knowledge, etc. This is our judging criteria. Are you confident enough to upgrade unto the next level?
Foreign Teachers also have the opportunity to advance onto a more managerial position, such as Teaching Principal or working on development and training in T&R Department. Depending on your strengths and plans Foreign Teachers could further their experience in either field.

Guangzhou (simplified Chinese: 广州), also known as Canton, is the capital and most populous city of the province of Guangdong in southern China. On the Pearl River about 120 km (75 mi) north-northwest of Hong Kong and 145 km (90 mi) north of Macau, Guangzhou has a history of over 2,200 years and was a major terminus of the maritime Silk Road, and continues to serve as a major port and transportation hub, as well as one of China’s three largest cities.
Guangzhou is at the heart of the most-populous built-up metropolitan area in mainland China that extends into the neighboring cities of Foshan, Dongguan, Zhongshan and Shenzhen, forming one of the largest urban agglomerations on the planet. Administratively, the city holds sub-provincial status and is one of China’s nine National Central Cities. In 2018 year end, the city’s expansive administrative area is estimated at 14,904,400 by city authorities, up 3.8% year on year. Guangzhou is ranked as an Alpha global city. There is a rapidly increasing number of foreign temporary residents and immigrants from Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Africa. This has led to it being dubbed the “Capital of the Third World”.
The domestic migrant population from other provinces of China in Guangzhou was 40% of the city’s total population in 2008. Together with Shanghai, Beijing and Shenzhen, Guangzhou has one of the most expensive real estate markets in China. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, nationals of sub-Saharan Africa who had initially settled in the Middle East and other parts of Southeast Asia moved in unprecedented numbers to Guangzhou, China in response to the 1997/98 Asian financial crisis.
Long the only Chinese port accessible to most foreign traders, Guangzhou fell to the British during the First Opium War. No longer enjoying a monopoly after the war, it lost trade to other ports such as Hong Kong and Shanghai, but continued to serve as a major entrepôt. In modern commerce, Guangzhou is best known for its annual Canton Fair, the oldest and largest trade fair in China. For three consecutive years (2013–2015), Forbes ranked Guangzhou as the best commercial city in mainland China.
