I am currently undergoing an application for a full time teaching job in Beijing. I have been working here as a teacher with a Z visa since since Protected content two previous schools. Neither of which required a police background check from UK. However, my new company stated that I require a police background check from the UK. According to what I have heard, this only applies to expats coming here and applying for a Z visa after July Protected content . So my question is, should this apply to someone who has been working legally on a Z visa prior to the visa law changes?
Also, do all schools require a tefl course? This seems to be a more recently changed law in November Protected content . Some said yes, others said no.
