I have a question that I hope can be answered on your FAQ page. I have not been able to find an answer despite looking on many government websites, legal databases, etc. I have seen a lot of debate on line about this, and many people seem to be confused about it.
What qualifications are required to be hired as an instructor of English at a short-term supplementary education institute?

You might be able to say that it is legal by the letter of the law but I am almost certain that the work permit would be denied if you could even find a buxiban to apply for it.
That's pretty shitty advice to give to someone that is moving to Taiwan specifically to teach English and is counting on a job.
