Date posted:2018-04-30 | Writer: International School Moshi | Email: [email protected]

The International School Mosh is a unique place of learning located at the foot of two of Africa’s most beautiful mountains! ISM was established in 1969 and now has two campuses in northern Tanzania, one in Moshi at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro, and one in Arusha, overlooked by Mount Meru. We have occasional opportunities for TEFL qualified teachers with international experience.

Any applications for either Moshi or Arusha Campus should include a full CV/résumé and the names and addresses (including e-mail addresses) of two professional referees. It is important to include details of any family members who may accompany you; we are unlikely to offer employment to a spouse unless as part of a teaching couple and local employment opportunities are extremely limited. Current Tanzanian regulations mean that we are only able to consider teachers under fifty five years of age who have a minimum of three years’ teaching experience.

As a minimum requirement, all applicants for teaching positions must have a first degree and a teaching qualification that entitles them to teach in their home country. International teaching experience is also desired.

The school also uses placement agencies to assist in our search for strong teaching candidates. However we encourage direct applications and will not be liable for agency placement fees when teachers contact us directly.


Applications for positions should be made by email to the address given on the job heading or in writing to

The Director,

International School Moshi,

PO Box 733,




Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


Teaching is not about talking and completing our lessons. But is also giving importance about our students feelings and ideas. As we teach in different one class, students has their characteristics and beliefs. That we need to respect and think to.Its good to build a good relationship with our students. They are not learning the lessons but they are enjoying every class that we have.Although defining the roles of teachers and students may seem elementary, it is foundational work of a good teacher. A good teacher would not automatically blame poor learning outcomes on the learners, but would reflect on the different learner profiles in the classroom and adjust his or her roles and activities accordingly. A good teacher knows that one size does not always fit all.
