Location of GuangzhouAISG offers the opportunity for qualified teachers to teach in a supportive, professional, international setting while experiencing the excitement of living in urban Asia, in one of the world's fastest developing areas.

Guangzhou's Baiyun International Airport has direct flights to Europe as well as to cities throughout Asia.
Contract and Age Requirement
Chinese law requires citizens to retire at age 60; however, this has not been enforced for our foreign hired employees. However, to avoid any problem for an employee or the School, individuals whom we hire must be able to complete the initial two-year contract and ideally another year or two before reaching the age of 60.
Salaries and Banking
Faculty receive their salaries and allowances in Chinese RMB. The school will arrange to open a Bank of China (BOC) account for each employee and, on a monthly basis, AISG will deposit RMB salaries into each employee's BOC account. If an employee wants part of the RMB salary to be converted into US dollars and deposited into an overseas account, the school will facilitate this conversion and fund transfer up to once per month.
