Postgraduate Fully-Paid Teaching Position in China

Interested in China? Development? Education?

The China Education Initiative (CEI) is currently recruiting graduating seniors to serve as fully-paid teaching fellows for the 2010-2012 term.

The China Education Initiative (CEI)

Established in 2008 under the auspices of the Ford Foundation, Princeton University, and Tsinghua University, CEI is an innovative non-profit organization taking a unique approach to eliminating educational inequity in China by enlisting the US and China's most promising future leaders in the effort. Through the institution of a US-China Teaching Fellows program, CEI meets the pressing need for exceptional teachers in China's understaffed low-income rural schools, while fostering a constituency of young leaders positioned to advance the cause of educational equity and effect long-term systemic change.

The China Education Initiative:

· Provides exceptional and enthusiastic teachers to schools in need. CEI recruits, trains, and supports outstanding graduates from premiere Chinese and US universities, assigning them as Teaching Fellows two-year posts in understaffed low-income schools;

· Works at the forefront of China-US relations as the first and only program to pair Chinese and American university graduates in a long-term service initiative;

· Promotes cross-cultural collaboration by partnering US and Chinese Teaching Fellows in four-person teams (2 US and 2 Chinese Fellows), and connecting their economically disadvantaged and often socially isolated students to a world outside – yet intimately linked to – their own communities;

· Fosters an internationally connected cohort of young leaders who understand firsthand the challenges facing students in low-income Chinese communities, and who share the insight and conviction to advance the cause of educational equity.

Global & National Partnerships - CEI works closely with a network of renowned US, Chinese, and international partners, and is:

· The only program in China collaborating with Teach America’s global partner, Teach For All;

· The first non-governmental accredited full-time teacher sourcing channel in China, as designated by the Yunnan Provincial Department of Education;

· Drawing on Princeton in Asia's more than 100 years of experience as a partner institution;

· Working in partnership with China's premiere teaching training and pedagogy research institution, Beijing Normal University, and with the Dartmouth College Teacher Education Program, to implement a comprehensive teacher training and support system;

· Operating under the strategic guidance of McKinsey & Company.

CEI is offering a unique opportunity for promising future leaders to serve in two-year teaching fellowships in China's most indigent rural schools, while living and working side-by-side with their Chinese counterparts.
