Newbie in Taiwan

8/10

New TEFL teacher, Shane Taiwan is good and secure. Guaranteed hours, reasonable pay and work load. DoS was helpful, training and support was good. Small class averages and little to no admin.

Recruitment process was easy, via Saxoncourt, lots of info before I went out there and the support on arrival was good. I was pleased to have secured a job before I flew to Taiwan.

Paid on time. Management at my school were friendly and helpful. Kids were great. Never had any issues with the material it is straight forward and easy to teach. They are growing really quickly. Everyone tries hard.

How can this program be improved?

Manager was busy and sometimes a little disorganised. They are growing and can't keep up with demand. You might need to sub on occasion. But not often. Keep helping and supporting new teachers.

Had to work on Saturdays at DTE, Franchises you don't have to. Sometimes I had to cover classes at short notice.

Good year at Shane

9/10

Shane is professional and I was recruited from the UK via Saxoncourt. You will do well if you want to be a proper teacher and not here to mess around. They are really helpful with the visa and arrival stuff. And I have learned a lot and developed. The training was good and my DoS was helpful.

Can be a lot of work at times. Especially if you put in extra prep for to your classes Pay could be higher, but Taiwan pay rates have not changed in 5 years. Starting pay is around NT$600.

How can this program be improved?

Higher pay rates, and modernize the some of the schools especially MJ.

Good place to start

9/10

Support and training was good. I left another company to come to Shane was referred to by a friend and they were a good employer. The kids are great and the DoS was helpful. Everyone at my school was really nice.
Apply on their website as they help you with arrival and visa stuff. The recruitment process was easy. I applied and was there within a month. It was a good experience and helped me develop.

How can this program be improved?

Improve some of the material and keep supporting the teachers don't forget this. It's important

SEST is a good place to work

9/10

I worked at Shane for the last year, and I was really happy at my school. I was working at DTE and there was a lot of support from my DoS. I was a new teacher and the training week was really helpful.

I had to sub a little at the start before my schedule came into place but it was ok. I taught 20hrs a week which enabled me to do so much. I learnt Chinese in the mornings and then worked in the afternoons and evenings.

Most of the staff were helpful and the Head Office staff were good. My only issue was the initial hotel. I worked at DTE but a lot of my friends worked at the franchise schools and so they had their weekends off. All the teachers are qualified and I had a 120hr online TEFL when I started, I am now doing a CELTA.

The classes and material was fun to teach and open ended so I could be creative. SPEC is good and is the most fun to teach. But some of the phonics books needed some TLC.

I left because I wanted to teach in Europe and also go back to school. Taiwan is awesome.

How can this program be improved?

More help to motivate teenagers and some of the material a little dated. These books needed updating in order to be more relevant. I am sure this would have helped with engagement.
