About Success in Education

SIE is one of the most established employers in the China TEFL world with some of the highest salaries and best teacher support. We are proud to have sponsored 1000’s of teachers through our teaching community across China with no major issues.

Founded in 2013 in Shenzhen, China, Success in Education (SIE) has grown and expanded over the years with thousands of teachers having successfully completed our program. Our mission is not only to find and employ the best candidates who we think will make great teachers, but to provide our teachers with a comfortable and safe working environment while they live in China for a year or more.

Our reputation and experience is what separates us from most companies and schools across China which allows us to perform every service by ourselves. Not only do we find, recruit, and train hundreds of teachers every year, but we also sponsor their legal Z work visas, assign them to one of our partner schools, pay their salaries, and support them with anything they may need while working and living abroad in China.

SIE is regulated by and complies with the national foreigner entry & exit laws as well as Chinese employment labor laws. The company is sponsored and certified by the Ministry of Foreign Expert’s Bureau of the People’s Republic of China.

Teachers Say

Hear from some of our teachers about what working for SIE is really like:

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with SIE and would recommend them for many types of teachers. A personal highlight for me is the confidence and independence they instill, though they are always there for me when I need help or have questions.

Kate M.

English teacher for 5 years

SIE has helped with all the necessary documents as well as everything we struggle with as foreigners. This is including but not limited to assistance with acquiring my residence permit, setting up my phone contract, and acquiring the perfect place to rent. SIE have helped us every step of the way and its very reassuring that they are always just a phone call away.


English teacher at SIE

SIE has helped me find a great school, set up all my accounts, and even wrote a letter of invitation for my wife to get a tourist visa. Anytime I have an issue and need help, the employees at SIE are always there to help. So far China has been full of pleasant surprises and unexpected adventures!

Chris H.

English teacher for 2 years

SIE was kind enough to give me a start-up loan to make sure I had enough money during my first month. My agent has also been helping me to buy everything I need for my new apartment online. They have made all my important documents and paperwork very easy to get since I arrived.
