More than 100,000 jobs await Filipino teachers in China
More than 100,000 Filipino English teachers are reportedly needed in China.
During a seminar at the China-Philippines Youth Exchange Program, Zhang Hang – a Chinese language professor and researcher at the College of International Relations of Huaqiao University – said that China wants to hire Filipino teachers because of their proficiency in English as well as their good work attitude.
He added that a very attractive compensation package awaits these Filipino teachers, and that China and the Philippines can further partner on educational exchanges as well.
Presently, 10,000 English teachers are in China, the majority of whom are Filipinos.
Meanwhile, in the Philippines, the Chinese government has set up four Confucius Institutes through its embassy and consulates. These institutes are located in Manila, Laoag, Cebu, and Davao.
