Just sharing this, extracted from China daily ( Protected content ). Most of the qualification remains unchanged , but the teaching is the revised process and will come into force very quickly:

Foreign employees in Beijing should be aged between 18 and 60, with a bachelor's or higher degree and at least two years of related work experience.If with no diplomas, foreign employees working for key, high-end technology research must have foreign technical qualifications.

Foreign workers to be employed after Oct 3 to teach languages in pre-primary education institutes, schools and private education institutes should have Chinese teacher certificates or International language teaching qualifications, include Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL), and The Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT).

Those who teach disciplines other than language studies should have at least five years of related working experience.

Also, all foreign employees should be healthy and have no criminal record. They need to have a valid passport or other international travel documents, a work permit issued by Chinese human resources and social security officials, and a residence certificate.

For those who work for Beijing's talent programs that boost the city's innovation capability, such as the Thousand Talents Program, the age limit is extended to 65 or older.

Those who can't meet the above requirements will be punished along with their employers and people or agencies who introduced the job.
