if you give more details, such as an answer to the above, then you have earned a better answer.

to many of the recent posts do not appear to be genuine, as they are either 'post and run' or have obvious flaws in their 'story'
thanks

I'd say, yes, you have chances to get ET job with only 1-year of working experience and right age, i.e. not too young as older than 18 - 20 years old.

 

2-years of working experience was put in place to prevent too young teachers apply for a job in China.

 

Just send your CV to every ET job vacancy you see and then ... tell us all about.

 

Good lucky!

replylaganreplyl:

Besides 1 year of experience for this position, are there any additional educational requirements? Foreign language proficiency, for example.

replylaganreplyl:

it is easy enough to search online for the requirements to work in China.

If you are unable to do this basic task on your own, i suggest that you are not ready to work anywhere, let alone China.

too many people spend time on social media searching about their favourite 'celebrity' yet seem unable to apply the same work when looking for a job.

just saying.

Where did you read about 1-year of ET experience? I know ...

 

Enter into any search engine:

"Requirements for an English teaching job in China" ... and voila ...

Last word is in French ...  ... and Sorrel is right!

hello, i have a masters in english linguistics, a c2 language qualification, a 160 hour tefl certification from cambridge and 3 years of university teaching experience and i live in pakistan. For some reason, i can't seem to land an interview with schools. Is there something i am missing?

icnif77:

You are a non-native English sneaker, so you don't qualify for a legal English teaching job in China.

See any search engine with: "Requirements for an ET job in China" what will broaden yer horizons on the subject.

One's degrees and what not do not matter. Not even Shehbaz Sharif could land a legal ET job in China.

Only native English passport holders (UK, USA, Canada, Oz-land, New Zealand, S. Africa) qualify ...

How could I forget Ireland ...

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
