Shang­hai to re­cruit 10,000 new teach­ers

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

A new phase in Shang­hai’s “teacher re­serve and train­ing pro­gram” re­cently launched. Ac­cord­ing to in­com­plete sta­tis­tics, the num­ber of teach­ers in Shang­hai is ex­pected to in­crease 9,400 in 2018, a much big­ger in­crease than that of 2016, Jiefang Daily re­ported Tues­day.

The de­mand for new teach­ers in Shang­hai’s many elite schools has risen in re­cent years, with those spe­cial­iz­ing in Chi­nese, math­e­mat­ics, English, physics, chem­istry, mu­sic, sports and the arts des­per­ately needed.

In or­der to at­tract high-qual­ity teach­ers, some dis­tricts have launched in­cen­tive poli­cies. In 2018, Min­hang dis­trict plans to re­cruit 659 teach­ers for its mid­dle schools, pri­mary schools and kinder­gartens. The dis­trict gov­ern­ment will pro­vide hous­ing if the teacher has none at the time of em­ploy­ment.
