School cancels contract with teaching agency...

School cancels contract with teaching agency...

Postby Makriel » 19 Jun 2012, 11:19

My current school is fed up because of one of the big banner teaching agencies in Taiwan and decided not to renew their contract. That leaves me without a job 9 days before my current ARC expires. I've been teaching 6 years at senior high in Taiwan. Anyone knows of any teaching jobs at junior high or senior high in Taipei and New Taipei City? Thanks...
(I'm a registered teacher and will apply for my APRC next month.)

If they have cancelled their contract with the agency, why don't you just negotiate a contract with them directly for next year, if they and you are both satisfied with the arrangements? They would get you more cheaply (most likely) even if they gave you a modest raise, since there would be no agency commission involved.

It's a real long shot because all the positions/contracts have probably already been filled for next semester, but contact the FETIT (Foreign English Teachers in Taiwan) programme through the MOE. It might be an option. They don't have anything closer than Xinzhu though, as far as I am aware.
