Q: Private school owners forced to hand institutions over to Chinese state

I don't think I need to say more, the title speaks for itself.

I have seen this happening to many schools in Shenzhen mostly kindergartens.

 

Google search the title of this and READ IT !

 

So yes, it means our time is coming to an end for working here. When? Maybe in 5 years or less.

 

Advice: Make a plan.

 

After all, we all just saw 17 Online companies get forced to close down and 900,000 Online teachers and Chinese staff lost their jobs worldwide in the last 48 hours and will be finished by Feb 2022 by that time the parents packages will have been finished.

 

Training centers are more controlled.

 

So yes, whats left for us?

 

Answer: Not much.

 

You're asking yourself f: "Can this really be happening".

 

Yes, I don't make calls that are not facts. This is real as it gets.

 

We'll see if the Gov has a place for us in their new educational plans.

Meh.

Training center teachers are doomed.

High schools and primary schools will still have foreign teachers. International schools will continue to operate as many have a very cosy relationship with the powers that be.

If you're working in a training center (and assuming it plays out the way it seems to be heading) you have two choices.

 

1. Take your experience and the fact that you're in China already so are a bit of a hot commodity and get a job in a school or University.

 

2. Take your experience and relocate to a different country. Honestly, that would be my advice but I know how hard that is for people with families in china.

I tell you, working at the Public school is much less demanding that teaching at the Training mill.

 

... and, you have nearly 3-months free time during 2-semesters with pay. Half salary each month for being on vacation, far away from the school as a topping.

 

I worked only at one Training mill at my start in China.

Stiggs:

I worked in a training school that had contracts with the public schools and would send people out to teach in them. I was stuck doing classes in both locations for about 5 months and while it was interesting to see how it all worked and the classes were good I hated going to them. I found the public schools to be disorganised and full of bitchy office politics.

icnif77:

I don't know why no appreciation at Public schools ... 'cause maybe you weren't really associated with them, i.e. only with them.

 

I usually always worked at Public schools as a main laowai English teacher and students were everywhere exited with my presence.

In Yuyang Middle School (I can't remember the name of the city ...), Principal joined me few times for a walk through the school's corridors during the class breaks and said: "I like to walk with you through the school, because students are very happy when they see you. If the students like their teacher, they will learn subject eagerly and with ease ...".

So, everything was c&d there, but they still wanted to stiff me at the end with some short pay.

This was the only problem I had at Public schools ... and at every one, I had to call SAFEA usually shortly before the end of the contract with some contract disrespect claim, which was always financial ... even when I was doing IELTS prep at the Kaifeng's Uni.

That must be the part of the face culture, which I will never understand ...

I know people who work in public schools and love it, it just wasn't for me, or at least the schools they sent us to weren't for me.

JohnsonZHANG6868:

I work in a training center that is partnered with two universities for the past three years. Both of them seems to be enjoyable to work at when it comes to teaching English to the students. From last year until now, one of the universities said they had ended our partnership with them so I only had to teach at one university for the training center.

Yes,some are obviously great to work at, people have taught in them for years and are happy, no complaints.

But there is only one shortcoming... teachers are sometimes mischievous to work together when they constantly spread unnecessary sayings about their own students at university.
