Having now discovered the majority of jobs listed on Tealit are technically illegal (kindergartens, “pre-elementary school”), does anyone knows if there’s a possibility to find a legal position that is essentially part-time, something at or just over the minimum 14 hours required to apply for a work permit and ARC.
Also to make things that much more difficult…I have 0 experience with teaching, however I believe I meet the minimum requirements to become a teacher (Over 20 years old, British passport, 3-year degree, clean criminal record).
I’ve been staying in Taiwan for some time living off savings, spending my time working on my Chinese and other things. I’d now like to find a teaching job to spare myself the visa runs, feel more secure when it comes to my health, and also to start working towards the five years required to apply for an APRC as I’d like to be here long term.
If it’s highly doubtful that a sub-20 hour work week is achievable with everything above board legally speaking, does anyone have any tips for looking at full-time job postings online to see if they’re above board? Anything to look out for? As I said I’m hopefully here for the long haul so I do not want to jeopardize my future here, no matter how small the risk.
Appreciate any advice given! Thanks
