March 14 - 15, 2020
Fair Organizer: Xiaohang Sumner
The Shanghai - Spring Fair is held relatively late in the recruiting season and is designed for schools that have late vacancies to fill or want to promote themselves to the fast-growing Chinese international education market. The Chinese market currently has close to 1,000 international education schools, attracting tens of thousands of talented teachers from diverse parts of the world. Many of the teachers will be looking for jobs to leave or stay in China in March so they would be interested in schools recruiting from both outside and within China.
For schools and teachers located within China, this fair will be a very convenient option as recruiters or candidates (especially bilingual Chinese teachers) do not have to deal with cross-border visa and travel hassles.
Many of the fast-growing schools across Asia often find themselves with new positions to fill after February and will find this fair a very useful option to recruit teachers. Beijing and Shanghai offer a 144-hour transit visa scheme for passport holders from many countries so there is no need to apply for a visa beforehand (please consult your nearest Chinese consulate before buying air tickets).
The fair will rotate between being held in a charming location in either Beijing or Shanghai and will open its books for school and candidate registrations later this year.
