uhm.. new rules again! Now 5 years experience needed apparently
« on: September 15, 2014, 09:59:16 AM »

Not that it's affecting me but I can't help to laugh in the face of the knee-jerk reaction changes that these folks keep implementing.
They has enough of a hard time finding teachers with 2 years experience.. now they want 5.. and they're still paying fucking peanuts.

Hahahaha.....China is funny with all the rules, regulations, guidelines and stuff that, ultimately, means bugger all. 5 years iexperience needed...right, tell that to the zero experience having undergrads from Minnesota teaching at my Uni this term. They are replacing the similarly less-than-experienced undergrads who taught here last year. They also expect to get teachers with that much experience for the pathetic salaries they pay. From what I can tell, these rules are only put in place so that the schools can save money. "Can I get a raise?", "Yes, we would love to but according to the rules you have to have 5 yrs experience and since you don't we are sadly not able to pay more". China is funny.  agagagagag agagagagag agagagagag

For teaching subjects? I don't really have an issue with that, in theory.  5 years might be a bit much, but right now there are a lot of "subject teachers" who think that because they majored in something in college, they're qualified to teach it. Sometimes it works out great. We have an amazing first year economics teacher here who probably would run circles around other more experienced teachers. But sometimes people end up in way over their heads (witness recent threads about history teaching).

Thing is though, what will happen is that schools will hire teachers as English language teachers on paper, and then just have them teach whatever anyhow. Once they're at the schools and in the classrooms, who is going to actual monitor what the school gets them to teach?

I guess that is what my new job is gonna be - a mix of English and accounting teaching. I thought it was just an English teaching gig but at the interview they asked me if I could teach an introductory accounting unit. Fortunately I am good at accounting (long experience in an office job) with a degree in it so I should be OK... but still...... :wtf:
