Contract is the “first hardware” for managing foreign teachers
I do not know when the “contract spirit” is closely linked to our impression of foreigners. Whether it is true or not, modern contracts-contract regulations are the basis of talent management.
In the eyes of most HRs, this type of contract is synonymous with regulations and restrictions, and this effect stems from regulations and enforcement.
Our person in charge, Ms. Wang, has applied for many years to recruit relevant qualifications for foreign teachers, and has accumulated a lot of experience in the institutional construction of foreign teachers’ “appointment and management” for many years. Ms. Wang said that the key to drafting the contract was to clearly state “the rights and responsibilities and treatment of foreign teachers.”
The power and responsibility part includes job responsibilities, working relationships, such as class requirements, working hours, reporting targets, and evaluation points; the benefits part needs to be detailed into the salary framework, increase arrangements, and calculation of specific benefits and overtime subsidies.
“Especially the working time of foreign teachers is very important. If there is no note on weekend overtime in the foreign teacher contract, it will be difficult to communicate in subsequent management work. Zhang Li said that for foreign teachers, overseas teaching does not mean long-term work and life. Most people value foreign cultures and life experiences, and it is not surprising that foreign teachers “lost contact” on weekends.
In addition, the clear working hours also stem from the operating needs of international schools. In addition to teaching and curriculum activities, schools often need foreign teachers to participate in market-oriented and enrollment-type external activities, and such activities are mostly on weekends.
In addition to remuneration, schools and foreign teachers should also make relevant agreements on professional development. Lily is an HR in an international school just starting school. She mentioned that “the foreign teacher contract must clearly state how many training opportunities there are in a year, including internal and external training, and the subsidy provided by the school when participating in external training. , How many times a year, and the maximum amount.
Regarding the contract regulations, she believes that at the beginning of the school, the foreign teacher contract is not detailed enough, and there are many areas that need to be increased and improved. “On the one hand, the improvement of regulations is to better implement management, and on the other hand, it is to improve the efficiency of HR work.
