Recruitment and deployment of Filipino teachers for tertiary educational institutions in China is now open after the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) released its guidelines on the matter.
Applicants, as stated on the regulation, should have worked in a private higher education institution in the Philippines to be qualified.
The applicant must have a Bachelor’s Degree in Education or in English Language from a Philippine educational institution accredited by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China.
The applicant must also have a valid certificate of registration above the intermediate level and a professional license from the Philippine Board of Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers.
Aside from these, the applicant must never been charged or convicted of criminal or administrative offense or has not committed any violation of the law; must be in good health; no mental issues; and no drug and alcohol addiction.
The Philippine embassy and the Chinese Consulate will serve as the contact window to heed and resolve the concerns on their employment particularly on the recruitment and the deployment of teachers, and other issues on their workplace.
The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) meanwhile, will focus on recruitment, orientation, processing, and documentation of Filipino teachers-applicants.
