Notice period and termination of contract (Shanghai)

Hi all,

New to Shanghai and currently looking at some English teaching to get me started. I've had an offer from a school however there's a few clauses that make me concerned - one of the main ones is that if I want to terminate the contract - I need to give 90 days notice and also pay Protected content salary - this seems somewhat excessive to me.

Does anyone know if this is normal? Or what the standard notice period may be in China? I know these may differ according to industry and seniority.

The contract is somewhat lacking in clarity on working days and hours too.

Many thanks in advance for your help and hoping to get to the next function!
