The CFTU is now accepting YOUR nominations for the Top Ten Best Schools To Work For In China. Each teacher may nominate two schools BUT they have to had worked for any school they nominate for at least 6 months. It is so easy for us to always find something wrong with a school (especially in China) but now if you had to recommend a place to work for a new arrival, (and assuming they were qualified), what two schools would you recommend? Before you answer, here are the key points to consider:
1) Pay Scale
2) Visa Support
3) Housing Subsidy
4) Ethical & Honest Administration
5) Working Hours & Overtime Pay
6) Respect Proprietary Lesson Plan Material & Copyright Laws
7) Always Paid On Time & In Full
9) Promises Kept or Broken
We will accept nominations through December 20th and then our staff will check your nominations against our complaint record (So far, 1,287 complaints for 2012) and we will publish the top 10 List on January 1st.
Please send your nomination to BestSchool@ChinaForeignTeachersUnion.org and post a copy here and be sure you do two things...1) State how long you worked there and WHY they deserve your praise. If if your nomination does not make it to the top ten, it will still help us in completing the 2013 Whitelist which we will post back here in January as well. Thanks for your help and remember the two golden rules...
1. Do Not Use Agents
2. Do Not work for less than 250 yuan per hour if you are a native speaker from America, Canda, U.K. or Australia OR hold a bachelor degree in Education
We also suggest you check the warnings at ChinaScamPatrol.org and our new consolidated black list at the CFTU web site. Happy Holidays To All And Don't Forget Our Free Santa Program in China For your Students and children!
