Guangzhou Mansi Culture Communication was formed in 2015, with the aim to open up the world for the children of China by connecting them with Native English speakers from the West. They act as the management link between you and the schools across South China as well as ensuring that your teaching experience in China is smooth, enjoyable and hassle free.
What to expect:
Week 1: GMCC Introduction to China
During this week there are certain requirements that have to be completed according to the rules and regulations of the People's Republic of China.
Arrival day: You will be picked up at the airport by one of the GMCC staff and brought to your hotel where you will stay until you can move into your own accommodation. Sometimes it will be possible to move straight into your accommodation however sometimes it will take a few days during which you will stay in a hotel paid for by GMCC.
Day 1/2: Medical Check/Registration/Introduction to GMCC
To apply for your residency permit you will need a medical check. If you have already done the full medical check prior to arrival, then just bring the form with you. In this case, you will just need to do a basic medical check when you get to Guangzhou. GMCC staff will bring you to the designated hospital to have your medical examination.
GMCC staff will escort you to the local police station to register, please make sure to bring your pssport! Under Chinese law foreigners must be registered. Since you will be living in Guangzhou you need to register with the local public security bureau. You will also need this registration document to apply for your working visa.
You will visit the local GMCC office and be introduced to your local support team. They will also help you to secure a Chinese sim card and a metro card. These are both at the teachers’ expense so please ensure you have enough cash with you.
You will shadow one of the current GMCC teachers, which will give you a chance to get a feel for their style of teaching and ask any questions you may have about teaching in China. You can also use this opportunity to try teaching a class on your own with the support of the classroom teacher.
Week 2: Start teaching in your own placement
Salary ranges between 16,000-18,000 RMB per month before tax depending on qualifications and hours worked.
GMCC wages are paid monthly for the prior month.
*** Please note: You cannot open a bank account until you have your residence permit.
GMCC employees are provided with private apartment accommodations at an employee cost of 2,000 to 2,500 RMB per month (depending on where you live). Employees must pay for their own electricity and water bills and any other fees such as Wi-Fi.
IPIE.US understands that you have many additional questions. If your application and resume meet the required expectations we will forward your materials to GMCC. They will be able to answer your specific questions and support you as part of their team from then on. Good luck and have fun teaching in China!
