On 12th October, Dongguan's Education Bureau released an official list of Dongguan schools approved to employ foreign teachers. According to the list, the number of qualified schools has increased to 30 as of the end of September 2011.

In addition to the six public schools, the remainder compromise private schools and two language training institutions (English First in Nancheng District and Meten English in Dongcheng District). "St. Lorraine English Kindergarten" is the only kindergarten on the list, which is settled in Dongguan's Changping Township. Of more than 600 kindergartens in the city, St. Lorraine's is the only facility approved to hire foreign teachers.

According to research conducted by Dongguan's Education Bureau, the number of foreign teachers employed in Dongguan has seen fast growth over the past two years. Research last December showed that there were 98 foreigner teachers in kindergartens, primary and middle schools throughout the city. While the Education Bureau has been busy inspecting illegal recruitment, and removing illegally employed foreign teachers, they found that many foreign teachers are teaching in Dongguan on tourist visas instead of work visas, which is illegal.

Certain group institutions actually hire foreign teachers in an official capacity for their elementary or secondary schools, while in reality they are actually placed in kindergartens. Dongguan's Human Resources Bureau confirms that according to regulations, foreigners may not be engaged for cross-departmental work in the PRC unless pre-approved. Accordingly, they can work within a group as long as they report to the city's Human Resources Bureau, before commencing work, to register their actual duties.

According to the Work Permit Rule's for Foreign Experts in Guangdong Province, cultural and educational teachers should have bachelor's degree or above, and more than 2 years related work experience lecturing in their mother tongue. Foreigners who apply for a teaching position should only go to those schools or other educational institutions which are qualified to directly employ foreign experts.

By law, the employer must proceed with registering the teacher with a Foreign Experts Certificate, Work Permit or Employment Permit before work may commence. The employer is required to go to Dongguan's Municipal Human Resources Bureau and Dongguan's Municipal Public Security Bureau to proceed with the relevant paperwork and obtain final approval.
