job description

Position: Primary EAL Teachers

Required: July 2021 or January 2022

Location: Brunei

Salary: B$3500-5500 per month, tax free

Experience: 3+ years

Sponsorship: Single teachers, teaching couples, married/de facto couples (non-teaching partner), families

Contract: 1.5-2 years

Applications are now open for Primary teachers to join one of our most highly-recommended education projects in either July 2021 or January 2022. Our partner in this project is one of the top 20 charities in the UK, providing a large number of teachers annually to support Brunei in their bilingual education policy.

The Bruneian government has a strong focus on continually refining its curriculum to fit the needs of its citizens in a competitive global economy, ensuring that all students finish school with fluent English language skills. Teachers working in Brunei are assigned to Primary state schools to teach English and help mentor Bruneian teachers.

This is a well-established project, with 30 years of success behind it. Teachers are well-supported by a dedicated welfare team, offered spacious housing beyond what we see in most other international opportunities, provided extensive professional development opportunities, and compensated well. It's a particularly perfect opportunity for families - with high-quality international school tuition provided for children - but equally great for independent teachers looking to explore.

Brunei is a fantastic place to live: a modern wealthy country with plentiful amenities, beautiful beaches, and amazing travel destinations on its doorstep. Ecotourism is blossoming in Brunei and there are plenty of national parks to explore. Not only is this an opportunity to help shape the bilingual education of this wonderful country, but a chance to live in one of the most extraordinary parts of the world.
