I’ve been applying at public schools, and recently accepted a position to teach at an English Village in Taipei at a government elementary school. However, I ran across something puzzling in the forums.
[quote]Every school on the island knows that they have to hire either certified teachers, or teachers with their own ARC’s, JFRV visas. The school likely can’t hire you for any other position because they’d have to justify hiring a foreigner over a Taiwanese for that job.[/quote] - 25 Jun 2012, 02:41 @ forumosa.com/taiwan/viewtopi … 0&t=111255
[quote]2. Government elementary and high schools can only offer legal employment opportunities to foreign teachers under limited circumstances. In these cases teachers need to be qualified teachers with a degree in education and a teaching licence back home. If you cannot meet these academic requirements but are offered a position in a government school then that position is most likely illegal.[/quote] - 09 Nov 2005, 05:48 @ forumosa.com/taiwan/viewtopi … 26#p452126
Which of the two is correct? Do I need a degree in education and a teaching license, or just any college degree and teaching license? I do not have a degree in education.
