Job Teaching EFL in Vietnam (2)
Date posted:2011-05-23 | Writer: Shelton English Centre | Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Shelton Development Group is a small but friendly organization that places teaches in the four major cities of North Vietnam. Hanoi, Hai Phong, Ha Long and Vinh. We are an established company with a new management team that is aiming to run an ESL program that provides the best possible language teaching in difficult market conditions.
We are looking for a good TEFL qualified teacher who has experience of teaching children who lack motivation and an incentive to learn. It is important that the teacher understands that they will take on a challenging role of teaching in a culture that has experienced a merry go-round of poorly-qualified international teachers with questionable social problems. It takes time to bond with the children and win the support of the domestic teachers. The local culture in three of the cities is only just becoming used to having westerners live and work in their region, and it is important that the successful candidate develops both the tact and patience to handle the position. The candidate must also understand that the Vietnamese system priorities fun and creative bonds over classroom discipline and they must ensure they bond with the children and have the patience to achieve this goal. For this reason we only accept applications from native speakers of English, between the ages of 20 – 45.
Details of Position
Teaching Level: mainly High-school students from 14 to 18 years. Number of students: 20-25 persons/class

We offer a sliding scale of pay according to the conditions in the local market and the particular qualifications that a successful teacher holds. If the candidate possesses both a good degree and a full teaching-
certificate (1 -2 years training) PGCE/QTS then they will receive the top band. If they have a good degree, 2 years of experience, and TESOL, TEFL, CELTA or equivalent then they will receive the mid-range of pay.
