Located in cosmopolitan Shanghai, both Shanghai Nanyang Model Private High School and Luwan Senior High School are located in the French Concession, a charming juxtaposition where new city lights meets old colonial architecture.

Employee Testimonials

Roger Zhai, B. Ed.
Shanghai Nanyang Model Private High School

At both of the CINEC schools I have worked, I have been provided with opportunities to teach courses outside of my main subject area that would have otherwise been difficult to obtain. CINEC employs professional, supportive and responsible individuals at every level of the organization. The fact that all CINEC schools are partnered with prestigious local schools demonstrates the organization’s maturity and reliability. I highly recommend working with CINEC if you are considering working in China, whether you are just beginning your professional career, a master teacher or anywhere in between!

Ron Berg, HBES, BEd, MEd
Luwan Senior High School – BC Offshore Program

“I’ve worked for CINEC for three years now and don’t regret a second of it. CINEC treats its teachers like the true professionals that they are. CINEC is fair and true to its word. I have learned a ton from my fellow CINEC teachers. Perhaps even more importantly, I have the freedom to be myself and to try out new approaches as a teacher. I work in a safe, caring environment that I can honestly say I’m happy to be in every day. CINEC’s successful approach shows in the low teacher turnover rate and in the excellent student outcomes we have year after year. Come work with CINEC! You won’t regret it.”

Nicole Carvalho
Vice-Principal at Shanghai Nanyang Model Private High School

“In 2013, when I decided to take a leave from my full-time teaching job in Victoria B.C., (I had been teaching in BC for 7 years at this point), I had no idea that 10 months abroad would turn into 4 years. I had no idea that what I thought may be a GAP year of sorts would turn into another valuable stage of my career in Education. I had no idea that I would be working for such a supportive company, with such innovative teachers, with such inspiring students.”

“Since the beginning, my experience working in CINEC’s BC Offshore program has been nothing but positive. My transition to a new company in a new city (in a new country!) was smooth due to CINEC’s support. After only 1 year, my personal and professional growth under the knowledgeable administration and passionate BC teachers around me skyrocketed. Working with ESL students has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my career. CINEC Education Group is a professional, equitable and honourable company, which puts EDUCATION FIRST. It’s been a pleasure to be a part of its BC Offshore legacy.”
