· Teach English in Malaysia
· Full Time position
We need new teachers starting Feb - May (start date flexible)
Enhance Education specialises in teaching English. We currently have four teaching centres in Penang State with a total enrolment of more than 2000 students per term and a centre in Kuala Lumpur. In 2018 we are looking to fill vacancies in Penang branches and open an additional centre in the suburbs of KL. In all centres we provide high-quality English language courses in spacious, well-equipped classrooms using interactive student-centred teaching methods. Our courses cover all ages and levels from age 4 years to adults. We are hiring for a number of February - May start positions in our Penang branches and for the expansion of our KL branches and we especially need teachers with a good range and/or a strong preference for teaching pre-school and primary age students.
We seek teachers who meet all these essential criteria:
- Substantial recent experience of teaching English to a range of learners from young learners to teens and adults.
- Native English speaker with a university degree in any subject.
- CELTA or Trinity London CertTESOL or direct equivalent with a substantial element of classroom experience.
We value professional development and we encourage and support teachers to improve their skills. We need teachers who can relate well to students, especially children, and who have an active and lively teaching style. We use a range of well-known coursebooks but teachers can draw on our data-bank for supplementary materials and have considerable freedom in planning lessons. Most of our students are part-time and study with us for two hours per week. This means that most classes are held at weekends and on some weekday evenings.
We offer a locally competitive pay and benefits package including health insurance and pension premiums. Depending on qualifications and experience, our total package starts from RM8,445 per month. Assistance with relocation and settlement costs is available including 14 nights’ accommodation on first arrival.
Our four centres are located in Straits Quay Marina and Bayan Baru on Penang Island, and on the mainland in Butterworth (Bagan Ajam) and Bukit Mertajam (Alma). All are close to residential and shopping areas with a wide range of affordable condos having good facilities such as a pool and gym. Commuting to all centres is quite easy and no matter where you teach you can choose to live on either Penang Island or on the mainland. Penang Island is popular with expatriates and Malaysians alike and affords a wide range of recreational and outdoor activities while historical Georgetown has UNESCO World Heritage Site status. The cost of living is much less than in many major cities in the region. Positons in Penang will be from February 2018.
Our second new centre in KL will be based in a popular suburb of the city. Kuala Lumpur is a vibrant, diverse capital city with a number of options for accommodation and with most condos having good facilities. KL has many local parks and wildlife areas around the city which offer a great opportunity for residents to get out of the city and unwind in nature, as well as being famous for the wide variety of different cuisines on offer around the city. Positions in KL will be from May 2018 onwards.
Enhance is a young company that is growing quickly. The senior staff all have strong educational backgrounds and considerable experience including the Group Director, Dr. Tom Craig-Cameron, formerly Director of British Council Malaysia. We also have experienced Lead Teachers who manage and support the teachers in each centre. Please look at our web site for more details: www.enhance-education.com
