We need experienced, enthusiastic teachers for mid-year to December 2021 starts
Enhance Education has specialised in teaching English for more than 10 years. We currently have four teaching centres in Penang State with a total enrolment of about 1700 students per term. 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 teacher positions and especially need teachers with the capability of teaching across the full range of abilities and ages.
We seek passionate teachers who meet all these essential criteria:
- substantial recent experience of teaching English to a range of learners from very young learners (4yrs+) to primary, teens and adults.
- native-level English speakers 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, and who have an active and lively teaching style. We use a range of well-known course books 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. Mid-week classes include adult conversation and evening classes, YL and teen writing classes and 1:1 lessons depending on the centre. We prioritise student safety and successful candidates will need to pass the necessary background checks to secure employment.
We offer a locally competitive pay and benefits package including health insurance and pension premiums. Depending on qualifications and experience, our total pre-tax package starts from RM8445 per month. Assistance with relocation and settlement costs is available including up to 10 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 by car 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.
Enhance Education is a company that has grown 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.
