Work permit as the name indicates is the permission granted by the government of a country for a worker from a foreign nation to work in their country for a specified duration.  

One does not need a work permit to get into China. To enter China, one needs only a visa. The visa can be single entry or multiple. One can only obtain a multiple entry visa valid for a year if he/her has a work permit. Without the work permit, one can only get a single entry or two-entry visa. Even in Hong Kong, it takes three days or more to get the visa and it cost about USD 20 for a single entry visa. (note: Single entry visa to China costs USD 50 if obtained in U.S.) With the work permit, one can get a multiple entry visa which will give the teacher a lot more freedom going in and out of China.

Also, one needs a work permit to work legally in China.
