Job Description

We have numerous exciting opportunities available to teach English in one of the world's most up-and-coming teach abroad destinations: Vietnam!

This is an incredibly vibrant country full of fascinating history, unique customs and exceptional food. Teaching here is a privileged opportunity to contribute to the lives of those most passionate about up-skilling themselves to allow them to explore a wide range of possibilities for their futures.

About the job

We have two types of positions available: teaching at public schools and teaching at private language centers. Currently there is high demand for private language centre placements as the main placement period for public schools tends to happen in August.

As a teacher in a private language centre you benefit from high tech, modern teaching facilities with smaller classes to allow you to give your student the attention they deserve.

No experience required, full training provided

Vietnam requires teachers to hold an in-class TESOL, TEFL or CELTA certificate from a recognized institution. If you hold one of these, that's one less requirement to fulfill!

For everyone else, we offer exceptional in-class TESOL training done in Vietnam where you also receive a weeklong cultural orientation, packed with fun activities and insightful lectures to help you adjust smoothly to life in this high energy country. The TESOL course is 120 hours long over a 3 week period and is led by an experienced instructor and is customized to teaching English in Vietnam.

With this you'll also receive airport pickup, a sim card for your mobile phone and comprehensive job placement assistance.
