Q: How do I check if a school is registered through SAFEA?

I have read and heard from many of you that it is important to make sure the school you apply to is registered through the SAFEA. I don't want to work for a school who is not legally licensed to hire foreigners. I haven't been able to figure out where to check, or how to check. I was looking though the information on this site:

 

http://www.safea.gov.cn/english/

 

I wasn't able to find where they had a list of registered schools. I also wasn't able to find anything through some basic searches. Am I going about this all wrong? Please help! 

 

Thanks,

Sarah

I am not sure, I understand what are you searching with 'School registered by SAFEA', butt...

 

Here is Angelina Cafe web link of Schools in China registered to hire foreigners:

Change Province you want to search, and level of the School in KeyWord column.

This is another setup question. Another new account will come on soon and recommend the China Foreign Teachers Union (CFTU). CFTU is not to be trusted.

 

This poster uses multiple accounts to do this, and has advertised CFTU under this account previously.

 

Read the warnings about CFTU and sarahmplane here:

When you apply to the schools, ask them for the paperwork to apply for the 'Z' visa. If they cannot supply the invitation letter, put the phone down and move on - simple! Regardless of anything that they may say, you have no legal commitment to work there until you have signed a contract AND they have supplied the invitation letter. Ignore any threats that you will be blacklisted or will never work in China again.

A:If you earned a Master's Degree in English Literature or a related subject, you can teach English legally in China even if you don't hold a passport from the usually accepted list of countries. The visa requirements clearly specifies this “loophole”.Nonetheless, I think this requirement is only for teaching English. If you are a licensed teacher of another discipline, such as Math or Physics, you don't need to be a native speaker, although most schools would rather hire a teacher from a country where English is the native language.Right now China’s borders are closed (does anyone have new information?), at least that’s what everyone is saying. China is probably only going to reopen the borders again once most of the population is vaccinated, and that might take a while. -- samvelasco87
