Teacher Salary Rates For 2020-2021

Unlike a lot of different schools, our teacher salaries aren’t negotiable. Every teacher is treated the same so that there is less friction in the company. Each teacher’s salary is calculated on a scale of circumstances, qualification, nationality and (legal) work history. When we advertise teaching positions, there is a fairly large range of differences between the lower and higher ends of the salary levels. We also base our salaries on the going market in the education industry for teaching in private or government schools and within the government price guidelines given to us by the Education Bureau. However, the salaries are not the same as subject teaching or international education. These salaries are generally higher, but so are the requirements. Panda generally leads the market by being the first to estimate future salaries before anyone else does in China, so that we are able to recruit teachers faster and easier.

The Salary ranges often change year on year in August, the beginning of the first semester school year, based on the Teacher Employment Market levels.

These salaries are generally the normal rates for the bigger cities in China, and you will find many education institutes throughout China are often much lower than in the bigger cities. Because of this, they usually find it difficult to attract teachers, when their salaries are half what the bigger cities are offering.
