Spotlight on David Cambridge Center in China

China is an English teaching hotspot but it can be difficult to know the story behind the school when searching for a reputable employer in the country.

In this article we asked Peter Hamilton from David Cambridge Center in Wenzhou more about the school and their ethos:

David Cambridge is located in Wenzhou, China. It was established in 2007 as an English training center with the ultimate purpose of providing a platform for TESL teachers to serve in China. The motto of DC is ’Guiding the Next Generation to Discover Their Purpose’.

Owned by a local businessman and operated under Chinese and American leadership, DC has matured to include three departments: an English training school department, an all-day international department, and a kindergarten department. Our students are all Chinese other than the foreign staff’s children. The kindergarten is an all-day school for 3-5 year olds. The international department teaches all the normal school curriculum in English for 1st to 9th graders. Our students from the international department then finish high school in the USA, Canada, England, or New Zealand. Our English training school is an evening school for kids after they get out of their regular school.

For the 2019-2020 school year, DC supported a family of 60 employees of which roughly 25% were foreign expats. The combined enrolment was almost 400 students. Together we serve the student and their family not only through English education, but also striving to connect with each family and offer a place to be loved, to learn, and to grow. In the coming years, DC is looking forward to expanding our family with like-minded, people of purpose and growing our influence among the people of Wenzhou, China.

Thanks, Peter. We wish you every success in the future as you continue to teach and  influence locally, and as you seek to recruit suitable EFL teachers with a heart for student and community growth.
