Date posted:2011-12-01 | Writer: British Council | Email: [email protected]

We are recruiting for a highly motivated and fully qualified EFL teacher, particularly with experience of teaching young learners, to join our professional ELT team in Rangoon, Burma starting in March 2012.

As a member of our professional team, you will strive to deliver high-quality lessons to adults and young learners, and will offer the flexibility and team-working skills necessary to work in a centre that provides a diversity of courses to a broad range of students. Successful applicants may have the opportunity to teach social studies and global issues on our capacity-building and leadership programmes, to work on our increasing number of off-site contract courses, or on our centre-based management skills courses. Such diversity presents plenty of opportunities for self-development, and the difference our work makes to the development of the country adds a real sense of purpose to the teaching day.


To be considered, you should have
    • a high proficiency in English
    • a first degree plus an internationally-recognised TEFL qualification.
    • at least two years of post-certificate full-time relevant EFL teaching experience across all age groups


Our teachers enjoy a comparatively high standard of living with opportunities to travel throughout the country and the wider region during the holiday periods. We offer a highly competitive salary paid in two components (US dollars and UK sterling), annual return flights to the UK, 40 days leave plus local holidays, matching pension contributions and medical coverage.

Interested candidates will need to email their professional profile to our teacher recruitment team based in Singapore at the address given on the job heading. 

The British Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all of its partners to share this commitment. British Council appointments are subject to Criminal Records Bureau checks in the UK and equivalent systems overseas.

We regret that only short-listed applicants will be notified.

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.

 

This unit explores modals, phrasal verbs and passive voice. It is definitely a dense unit, with lots of information to offer. It thoroughly explains modals and it's tenses and usages, how to use passive voice in a sentence, and the different types of phrasal verbs. I find the phrasal verbs to be quite confusing. This is definitely one of the most challenging grammar lessons included in this course.I think this unit pretty much covers everything. I cannot think of anything to add to this topic. Coverage is good enough. Can the course also include video links so that we can actually see examples of the different ESA techniques? I am hoping that one of the units will cover techniques in teaching pronunciation because certain nationalities really have difficulty in pronouncing certain alphabets.
