    I am interviewing with a school tomorrow. I'm super excited, but also nervous. I've read about the dodgy chains and all the "beware" advice on the TES discussion boards. I'm interested if anyone has ever worked for or heard of [This comment/section has been removed for breaching our Community Guidelines/Terms and conditions] They have campuses in Beijing, Hangzhou, Shenzhen, Thailand, and a few other places. @hippo I know you are a legend here and know all things China. Maybe you can help.

    Some questions I would find answers for;

    1 Who is in charge of the school, is the Chinese partner in possession of the red rubber stamp?

    2 What nationalities are the students or is this a Bilingual School for Chinese Nationals only?

    3 Will there be any boarding duties in the evening and at weekends?

    4 What is the turnover in staff?

    I would pay for the subscription to the International Schools Review and pay attention to what is written about the Education Business in question.

    Some schools may appear to be run by the western principal but they are a puppet to a local owner.
