Teach English as a Foreign Language in Penang, Malaysia

South East Asia, Malaysia

Enhance Education

We need an experienced, enthusiastic teacher for a mid-April 2020 start.

Enhance Education has specialised in teaching English for almost 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 one end of April / early May start position and especially need a teacher with an upper-primary and teen bias with corporate class experience being of added advantage.

We seek a passionate teacher who meets all these essential criteria:

- substantial recent experience of teaching English to a range of learners from primary to teens and adults with corporate experience being of added advantage.
- 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 a teacher who can relate well to students, and who has 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 and on some weekday evenings. 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. With the position based at our Bayan Baru branch, depending on qualifications and experience, our total pre-tax package starts from RM8445 per month dependent on qualifications. 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.

Enhance Education is a 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.

To apply, please send your CV and a covering note. We are only able to reply to shortlisted applicants.
