GREAT NEWS FROM CHINA...



OMG! You probably won't believe this, but it has now been 3 years without any more changes to the Mandatory Foreign Teacher Requirements. They are strict enough already so be sure you understand... the below are NOT options!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE... Even though there are no major changes for 2016 you must stii BEWARE! Many unethical and unlicensed recruiters and China job agents are trying to say otherwise to lure you to come work illegally in China. To be crystal clear the following is what you MUST have to come work in China legally - without risk of arrest, jail, and deportation...

* Be 21-55 years of age
* Have a verifiable bachelor degree in any major
* Hold a Z Visa (work visa) in your passport before your first day on the job
* Speak and write fluent English
* Have a police certificate proving no criminal record (For Beijing & Shanghai jobs only - so far)


TEFL or TESOL certificates are not required by law but about 10% of employers want them. If you want a Foreign Experts Certificate (FEC) you will be required to pass a medical exam.

Despite the above general requirements, individual employers tend to demand and will pay more money to hire NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS. If you meet the above requirements and do not know how to find an honest employer in China, avoid the agents and take a look at out white and blacklists of China schools at http://www.chinaforeignteachersunion.com or send for our China Welcome Package with an email to CWP@chinaforeignteachersunion.org. Good luck and welcome to China!
