About the CfBT Project

CfBT is one of the top twenty charities in the UK and has been working with the Brunei Darussalam government for over 30 years in support of their bilingual education policy. Teachers working in Brunei are assigned to state schools to teach English and help mentor Bruneian teachers. The focus is to raise the proficiency and attainment levels of Bruneian students through high impact teaching and learning in classrooms, specialised national support and intervention programmes. The project is a directive from the Ministry of Education and as such you will be holding what is considered a very high level and important role, making a real difference in the lives of Bruneian children and their teachers. There are 200+ Primary and Secondary teachers on this programme with many teachers staying and settling in Brunei for a number of years.
