Following are the guides as stated by the Chinese government:
*Category 1: RMB 2,200 – 3,300 – teachers having a bachelor's degree and over two years of work experience, or middle school teachers with over three years of teaching experience.
*Category 2: RMB 3,300 – 4,600 – assistant professors or lecturers of institutions of higher education, or middle school teachers with over five years of teaching experience, and professionals with corresponding titles and business levels.
*Category 3: RMB 4,600 – 6,000 – professors, associate professors of institutions of higher education, senior lecturers of the Commonwealth countries, and professionals with corresponding titles and business levels.
*Crucial talents badly needed in China and difficult to recruit may be employed with high salary.
NOTE: There are the established guidelines and allow room for negotiation. In reality, many schools will offer higher salaries to entice the foreign teacher. However, a higher salary from a school often means more contracted teaching hours or other specified duties.
