JESIE Education Development Internship Program (EDIP)

EDIP Leaflet updated1 - 副本.jpg

EDIP Overview

JESIE Education Development Internship Program (EDIP) aims to promote those in the early stages of their careers as educators by offering them an opportunity to teach in Chinese classrooms. In addition to experiencing China, with its ancient culture and booming economy, JESIE EDIP participants will be provided with the Chinese accredited TEFL training curriculum and Mandarin lessons as well as the opportunity to practice and learn teaching skills that include detailed lesson planning, classroom management, and other aspects of language teaching. EDIP has different programs catering to different levels of candidates both on the level of university students and of graduates.

Join us to upgrade your qualifications while experiencing Chinese culture, traditions and values.


Your role
During training you will be introduced to the Chinese educational system and to the regulations that apply to you. You will be instructed in preparing for classes and writing lesson plans by our supervisors, who are qualified teachers with many years of experience.


After your training, you will travel to a Chinese school where you will gain real ESL teaching experience. At the school, you will be supported in your teaching role by JESIE and also by an on-site liaison, who will assist you with your everyday needs – everything from help with your accommodation and time-tabling to your banking and topping up your mobile phone.


Choices are made during the programme to place interns at a number of different schools in Jiangsu province (in Eastern China) e.g. Nanjing, Wuxi, Changzhou, Rugao, Yancheng, Xinghua and Huai’an among others. These are cities sitting on China’s east coast and are shining examples of modernity blended with conservation. Many of these cities are ideal for travelers desiring a change of pace from China’s crowded metropolises without compromising the benefits of a bigger city.
