  Requirements higher for English teaching jobs

  FOREIGNERS seeking jobs in Shenzhen could see fewer English-language teaching opportunities as training organizations increase their requirements for foreign teachers.
  A recruitment manager with the Shenzhen branch of a brand-name English training center, identified only as Rachel, said it’s difficult to find qualified foreign teachers among applicants who are native English speakers.
  “We feel it’s urgent to recruit really qualified foreign teachers, because the training industry can be messed up by people who don’t have proper qualifications,” Rachel said. “We don’t want the market to lose its credibility at the price of quality.”
  An American identified only as John said he finally decided to take a job at a small English training school with modest pay after being rejected by several well-known training centers because he didn’t have a Teaching English as a Foreign Language, or TEFL, certificate and lacked language-teaching experience.
  “I didn’t expect that there would be so many requirements. Before I came to China, I was told that Chinese people are keen on learning English so it’s easy for a foreigner to find a teaching job,” he said.
  The number of new foreign experts in those fields, recorded by the administration, was 1,200 in 2011 and 1,600 in 2012. This year’s total could reach 1,900.
  The city has introduced up to 700,000 foreign talents in all fields, the third-largest amount among Chinese cities.
  About 100 Shenzhen companies were licensed to hire foreign experts in 2012. But many unlicensed training schools claim they employ foreigners to teach spoken English.
  Many people among the city’s permanent foreign population of about 500,000 work as English teachers.
  Foreigners in China are not permitted to take teaching jobs unless they have certain certificates, and hiring organizations must be qualified to recruit and hire foreigners as teachers and must renew their qualifications annually with the foreign experts affairs administration.
  A Shenzhen law issued in 2006 that involves foreign experts working in China states that a foreign teacher must acquire a work permit issued by the Shenzhen Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs, and a foreign expert license. Language teachers must have at least a master’s degree and two years of related work experience.
  The State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs recently announced that foreigners who take jobs teaching children have to sign a document saying they don’t have a criminal record and pledge to abide by Chinese law, in addition to acquiring a work permit.
  Stephen Farley, vice president of private company Education First, said the company requires its foreign teachers to have a valid work permit, two years of work experience, a master’s degree and a professional certificate, such as a TEFL or a Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA).
