Does anyone know the difference between these two? I am offered a position from this private high school as a full-time lecturer. 전임강사...
I applied when they were looking for teachers (교사) and went through the same screening and interview process as the other teachers. I expected a teacher position, but I am just a lecturer. Should I expect a difference in treatment and benefits?
Since I am a gyopo and don't have a Korean citizenship, I don't know what rules apply to me at this school. We haven't discussed any benefits yet, but I don't exactly know what I should be asking for.

I would appreciate it if anyone with experience or knowledge would give me some feedback on this. Thanks.[/b]

Off the top of my head, I'd say the school is trying to pull a fast one by the Ministery of Education.

By labelling you a "lecturer" instead of a "teacher," they don't have to abide by the semi-strict Ministery guidelines regarding the employment of foreign "teachers" at primary and secondary schools.

Same thing.

Generally 교사 would be a high school teacher and 강사 a lecturer at university (the 전임 part just means short term). Folks don't hold on determinedly to these distinctions, though.

What are the benefits/pay of the job?

I know that Kyonngi, for example, set down a bunch of rules for teachers being hired.... rules that suck and make it harder for schools to find teachers.

Could they be using this distinction to keep control of their own contracts?

I work for a private hs, so please let me know what they're offering you/hours/vacation, etc... and I'll be able to give you more information about what's going on compared to what a teacher would get in such a situation.
