Q: Are licensed agencies to be discouraged (have licenses withdrawn)

Today I was advised that the coming year/s will see the restriction of official agency employment of foreign teachers which are subsequently placed in public schools. In short, I was told that although schools prefer to use agencies the government are aiming at direct recruitment policies and a contractual arrangement with schools as a priority.

 

Has anyone heard anything about this? It will truly throw a spanner in the works if it is the case for every link in the chain.

 

It suggests to only trust a direct contract in a public school if you are looking for long term employment.

I would have prefered to deal directly with the school employing me, as with any country. when it comes to contract working.

Using agencies although might take the pain out of dealing with some aspects of life in China, you know that they are ****ing you over when it comes to salary.

 

On the 'con' side there is the bureacuracy aspect of China which is like jumping through so many hoops to turn a light switch on it fries the brain some times.

I would also prefer to negotiate with the school than going to the agency. It's more convenient.
