Q2: At which school will I be teaching?

The process is that after being offered a position by CIPTC, you know you will be teaching at a public school in Shenzhen. Then you fly to China with your work visa. CIPTC will provide you available schools when you arrive in Shenzhen based on your preference on age group and location. A teacher will then have an interview or demo lesson with his/her interested school. If you pass the interview, you are admitted to teach at the school. If you fail the interview, you will be given other schools and other interviews until you get into a school.

Q5: What’s housing like?

Q8: How do I get a health report?
A8: It’s required by the Foreign Expert Bureau that all applicants must provide a health report for the application. There’s a standard official form for you to take a fully body check. However, it will be money consuming and time costly to get the form done. Therefore, we suggest you get a doctor from a hospital or clinic to write you a Heal Statement to prove that you are in good health condition and carry no contagious disease. We can simply use that statement to apply for work visa.
