Teaching in Brunei


CfBT provides education services to the Ministry of Education in Brunei in support of its bilingual education policy. The aim of this programme is to raise standards of English, to support the Government’s aspirations for a diversified, modern economy. CfBT’s remit includes the selection, orientation, support and management of a large number of highly qualified primary and secondary teachers, to teach English. CfBT also provides a range of extra services, such as teacher training, curriculum support, materials development and publishing.


What benefits are on offer?


Take home pay is B$3,500 – B$6000 per month, tax free (note: the Brunei dollar is pegged to the Singapore dollar). Food, petrol, eating out and utility bills are generally much less expensive in Brunei than in countries such as the UK. With no rent to pay, annual flight allowances, and cheap recreational activities in Brunei and neighbouring Malaysia, most teachers find that they are able to save a significant percentage of their salary.



We would love to hear from you if you meet the following criteria:

  • A degree from a university in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa or the UK, and have completed basic and tertiary education in one of these countries
  • Qualified teacher status (i.e. qualified to teach within the state education system in your home country), usually in the form of a B.Ed /Dip Ed/ Dip Teaching/PGCE
  • A minimum of three years’ classroom teaching experience. This should include some young students (5-6 years of age) for primary and secondary students (11-18 years of age) for secondary) 
  • Some experience of English/Literacy EFL/ESL learners is preferable
