Teach English in Malaysia (4)

Date posted:2013-03-18 | Writer: Enhance Education | Email: [email protected]

Enhance Education Sdn Bhd specialises in teaching English. We are expanding and need new EFL teachers who are available to start in June, July, September & October. Our main English Language Centre is located in a modern sea-side marina development on the lovely tropical island of Penang, Malaysia. We have also just opened a second centre on the mainland immediately opposite the island. In both centres we provide high-quality English language courses in spacious, well-equipped classrooms using interactive student-centred teaching methods. Our courses cover all ages and levels from age 4 years to adults, but there is especially strong demand from pre-school and primary students. We are now planning to open a third centre and we will need up to 6 teachers over the next few months.

We seek teachers who meet all these essential criteria:

A. Substantial recent experience in teaching English to children.

B. Native English speaker with a university degree in any subject.

C. TEFL / TESOL /CELTA or direct equivalent with a substantial element of classroom experience. We do not accept solely on-line certificates.

We want teachers who can relate well to young children and who have an active and lively teaching style. We use a range of well-known course books but teachers can draw on our data-bank for supplementary materials and have considerable freedom in planning lessons. Most of our students are part-time and study with us for 2 - 4 hours per week. This means that teaching schedules have to fit around school and work times with many classes being held at weekends and some weekday evenings. Nonetheless we do guarantee all teachers two consecutive rest days each week, usually on Mondays and Tuesdays or on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

We are a progressive employer offering a professionally supportive environment and an internationally competitive pay and benefits package including health insurance and pension premiums. Usually starting salaries are from RM7k to RM8k per month. Assistance with relocation costs to Penang is available for staff recruited from outside Malaysia.

The delightful Straits Quay marina-mall on Penang Island has attractive bars, restaurants and high-end boutiques. The surrounding neighbourhoods are largely residential and offer many types of accommodation to rent on long or short leases. The centre on the mainland is near to the sea, to local facilities and to popular residential areas. The new third centre will be slightly further inland in a modern residential area close to a major town and a regional nature reserve. Commuting to all centres is quite easy and no matter where you teach you can choose to live on either Penang Island or on the mainland.

Enhance Education Sdn Bhd is a young company that is growing quickly. The senior staff all have strong educational backgrounds and considerable experience: the Principal is Dr Tom Craig-Cameron, formerly Director of British Council Malaysia; the Deputy Principal is Ross Beattie formerly of the Garden International School in Kuala Lumpur; and the two Senior Teachers are Emma Talbot formerly of British Council and Sue Back who is a UK Qualified Teacher.
