CEDEI English Program is searching for EFL teachers to start with us in September 2019. We have three sites in Cuenca, offering English classes to more than 1,000 students with a staff of at least 50 teachers. Teachers will generally teach four classes per cycle, each cycle lasting three months. Our teachers work with us for a minimum of 3 cycles, about a 9-month period. Start Date: Monday, September 16, 2019. Teachers are expected to arrive one week before the start date, in order to get settled in Cuenca, arrange accommodations, and participate in a three-day orientation before the cycle starts.


-An Associate Degree or Bachelor's Degree

-A TEFL/CELTA/TESOL certificate (minimum of 100 hour program-including classes and practicum)

-Must be a native English speaker or have fluent English

-Teaching experience (practicum hours or professional hours)


The pay is $7.00 an hour. CEDEI Foundation is a non-profit organization. While teachers do not earn a lot of money by international standards, they do earn enough to live comfortably in Ecuador. It is also an opportunity to gain invaluable teaching experience and cultural exchange. Teachers are offered free Spanish classes and free dance classes.

NOTE: Visa and airfare fees are the teacher's responsibility. Teachers have to pay for the total cost of the visa ($250) when they apply for it at the Ecuadorian Consulate, but CEDEI reimburses 50% of the cost when teachers are on staff.
