How Can Schools and Education Centres Cooperate with Us?
Panda has been in business since 2008 with foreign and Chinese management staff, who handle issues that either the foreigner or school might have between each other. Because of our well known reputation in the education industry, Panda has very little problem attracting foreign teachers to our company. Please feel free to check out our “About Us” page to learn more about Panda.
Panda hires foreign teachers to work in a variety of schools around Shanghai and are able to get the proper Category B work permit and visa for the teachers. That includes doing the visa under the school’s own education license, if necessary. Most schools find these visa processes very difficult to follow because of the complicated requirements, but we have a very experienced HR department that can handle these procedures extremely well.
Panda, through our cooperation with the schools, also handles the employees’ taxation issues with the government, allowing the schools to decrease the amount of tax paid on behalf of the foreigners and help the schools by collecting the teachers’ residential rental fapioas to keep the taxation costs down. This is an arrangement Panda has made with the government’s taxation department, since we know that foreign teachers’ salaries are high and so are the taxes. In addition to this benefit, Panda has an Accident Insurance Policy for the teachers, should a teacher be injured or die in China. Panda teachers, also have the option to medical health insurance, through the same company that handles the accident insurance.
Panda has a set contract with the schools, and a separate one with teachers to solve administration and labour issues before they happen. Our team of managers and staff also monitor the teachers in the schools, through surprise or scheduled visits, to give schools the best quality. If a teacher isn’t up to the school’s standard, Panda has trainers that will train the teacher or teachers further, either privately in our training office or in the classroom. Should the foreign teacher still not reach the proper working standards of the school, we have the ability to remove the teacher and replace them with another on staff.
Panda also has a temporary teacher system, should a teacher become ill and is required to take a day or two off work. We also have a list of teachers willing to replace a teacher in a short period of time so that the students’ education is only slightly inconvenienced.
It is true that the price of getting a Panda teacher is higher than you would normally pay on your own, but Panda takes care of a lot of issues for the schools that can be time consuming or difficult. The job of hiring and processing the teachers’ documentation alone requires experienced staff members and managers to get the job done properly. But to handle and negotiate with foreigners can be quite difficult because of language and cultural differences. If foreign teachers don’t feel happy and confident in the schools they are working in, or they feel that they are being mistreated, the teacher will leave, and we prefer that teachers stay for a long period of time. Panda has a team of foreign managers that know how to communicate with the teachers on a cultural level, and can generally solve most problems that arise.
Schools can financially benefit by the number of foreign teachers supplied and/or managed through Panda, giving the schools additional opportunities to keep costs down. Our pricing for teachers’ salaries are calculated on the country’s market for foreign education. The salaries paid to Panda teachers are high enough to make them feel financially secure and stable, which makes teachers stay with Panda for a longer period of time.
