Q: China International Personnel Training Centre (Shenzhen): Does anyone have experience with them?

Apparently they are hiring teachers to work in public schools in Shenzhen. They initially requested 140 teachers for these positions in August, but are still looking to fill in a few jobs. Does anyone know about them, or is anyone currently working for them?

I've searched the esl boards far and wide and the few posts that deal with CIPTC are vague or uninformative. I was hoping to find some feedback from actual teachers, but there doesn't seem to be any. Every time I've asked them (CIPTC) if they have contacts I could speak with, they dodge the question.

I had interview two weeks ago with Maggie, Chinese agent and Bill, American guy at CIPTC. I didn't get selected for Public School position in Shenzhen. I am non-native English teacher.

But they have "international" in their name, so it must be a good place, right?

mohawkjoe:

They also have "Training" in the title too although no real training ever really happens!

Avoid this government-related company like the plague!!  The only people who are happy with this place are the folks making money off the inexperienced/naive teachers or those who simply don't know any better.  Contracts with these people mean absolutely nothing and will be changed/altered (including reducing salary) without any warning or justification.  The good news is that there are so many places/opportunities for enjoyable and rewarding work in Shenzhen you won't ever have to deal with these scumbags.

Stay away!  Run away!  The only people who are happy about this agency are those who simply don't know any better.  Pay is very low, mentoring is non-existant, most of the teachers are really bottom-of-the-barrel types.  Some in "management"  (eg. Hans, Camille, Charles) are completey incapable ot teaching or managing themselves, but will lay down the law on your supposed shortcomings.  Just look somewhere (ANYWHERE!) else.

Don't even bother with CIPTC.  They have some online video interviews and stories where the most articulate and telegenic people are talking, but these are the exceptions to the rule.  Incompetance is commonplace.  Salaries are rock bottom.  Most apartments are crap.  And the public schools they supply teachers to are overrun zoos.  Just stay away ... there are SO MANY other options in a big city like Shenzhen.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: Your potential employer is right! Demand for Medical exam before
A:Your potential employer is right! Demand for Medical exam before granting Z visa is to make sure, you won't be entering China in any abnormal and harmful to others condition.Few days after your arrival to China, you'll be required to complete another ME ... If ME in China will be OK, you'll get a Residence permit stamp into your book some 10-days afterwards. Imagine, you're an employer, who can sponsor my entry and work in China, but after my arrival to China would be found I carry some sickness, which would prevent Chinese .gov to issue a Residence permit. Rule is: Z visa should be converted into Residence permit in 30-days after entry to China.    So, my advice is:"Complete ME in your home country and forward medical results to your employer".Z visa grant will follow shortly afterwards. Employer is not wrong at their demand for the pre-arrival ME from your home country hospital.   -- icnif77
