Get the certificate from your school.  Bring a friendly co-teacher with you to the administrative office.  :)

You can get a form from immigration under records and certificates. By the way, to all other new renewing teachers: they asked me for 2 letters of reccomendation which they will scan and keep in their records. That is something that is nice to have in the event of an emergency (like when you need 2 letters).

Is there a contact list for Gyeongsang provoince? If so, would love to have it.

I tried surfing the net, but anything that looked remotely important had too much Korean, which made it impossible for me to discern whether I could use the emails or not. Even with Google Translate.

Any help is muuuuch appreciated, as usual.

Thanks in advance,

I created a small web course for newbie teachers on Udemy here.

I have a problem.

I have worked in a private hagwon for almost two years, and am now looking to move to a public school. I went to the provincial Education Office to obtain a certificate of my experience, but they had no record of me. I asked my boss, and was told my school didn't register me. My school said they can provide me with a letter, but a public school won't accept this as experience.

Is there anything I can do? Is a hagwon required to register you as a teacher?

Hey ,  I was in the same situation 3 years ago. I worked at Chungdham Inst. for 2 and half years and when I transfered to a public school, the co-ordinator said "Hagwons don't count as experience ,  because it's more like a business ."

 :sad:  I ended up at a lower pay level scale than I hoped ...

For those that interested, Korvia's partner SayKimchi I guess is offering a service to get the letter for you. They say they will either send you an email scan or send it via mail in Korea or outside of Korea. Cost is 20 bucks.

Your boss is required by law to give you proof you worked in Korea if you ask for it.


The Korean Labor Standards Act: Chapter 2 "Labor Contract": Article 38 Certificate of Employment

(1) If an employer has been requested by a worker to issue a certificate specifying term of employment, job specification, title and wages or other necessary information even after the retirement of the worker, he shall immediately prepare upon fact and deliver the certificate.

(2) The certificate referred to in Paragraph (1) shall only contain the items that the worker concerned has requested.

Yes, but only for 3 years after last day of employment.
Enforcement Decree of the Labor Standards Act (06/21/2012)

Article 19 (Request for Issuance of Certificate of Employment)
      
The persons eligible for requesting the issuance of the certificate of employment in accordance with Article 39 (1) of the Act shall be the workers who have been employed for 30 days or longer continuously, but such a request shall be made within three years after retirement.

Please consider adding some info to your "Personal Text"  Like type of school, visa status, county of origin.  These little bits of info can help people help you.

By any measure, that is a reasonable request.

I don't know if anyone else has had a school ID made, a plastic credit card sized thing with your picture and title on it plus the name of your school and the date you started.

My school made them for all the staff shortly after the Korean PE teacher got busted for molesting a student.

We're supposed to wear them around our necks on the supplied lanyard. No one does anymore, it's been 2 years. But I have mine. I figure that's reasonable proof of teaching here.
