Teacher's FAQ

HOW LONG ARE THE TEACHING CONTRACTS? DO I GET PAID HOLIDAYS?

Teaching contracts are usually one-year long. Full-time teachers usually will get paid for the Taiwanese national holidays (about 10 days a year). There are certain school events that the teachers are usually required to attend but will not receive pay. Some examples of these events are open houses for the school, Christmas parties, parent-teacher conferences, and graduation ceremonies. However, each school is unique, and these are simply general rules of thumb.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I BREAK THE CONTRACT?

The teacher will typically need to pay a penalty if he/she breaks the agreement, contingent on the contract. You should read through the contract thoroughly before you sign the contract with the school. Breaking the contract not only results in a fine, but may result in negative remarks from your previous employer. In that case you may have a difficult time in getting another job.

WHEN/HOW AM I PAID?

You will receive pay directly from the school. ACI does not take a portion of your salary. Teachers are usually paid on the 10th or 15th of each month for previous month’s work. The school will either pay you in cash, check, or direct deposit. Some schools might keep a portion of your salary for the first few months. If they do require so, it will be stated in the contract. Some schools also give bonuses; they could be for attendance, performance, or contract-renewal.

WILL I BE REIMBURSED FOR AIRFARE?

Typically, privately-owned cram schools in Taiwan will not provide reimbursement. However, many schools do give a contract completion bonus that counts as a partial reimbursement. Public schools, on the other hand, will reimburse for a one-way ticket.

WILL THE SCHOOL PROVIDE LIVING ACCOMMODATIONS?

Schools in big cities usually will not provide any free accommodations. However, we, or the school, can assist in finding a suitable place to rent. On the other hand, schools located in more rural areas may give free housing (usually furnished and air-conditioned) or housing subsidy.
