Teaching in Asia is a very popular decision for teachers. As the world comes closer together one of the key barriers remaining is language. The English language has become a requirement for most people rather than a benefit. With a growing economy, schools in this area serve expatriates as well as those wanting their children to learn the importance of international education.
The value of education is regarded very highly in Asia and so you will find students are keen to learn and there is little or no issues of behaviour. Whether it’s Korea, Japan, China, Malaysia or Thailand, the demand for native speakers of English is high. Teachers want to work in this region also benefit from being able to get a quick flight to a neighbouring country to explore the rich cultures it has to offer.
In addition to fully qualified teachers, there is also a great demand for teachers that hold a degree and a Teaching as a Foreign Language (TEFL) qualification with a few years experience. SeekTeachers™ highly recommends teachers to consider Asia as a hot spot, not just now but in the future as well. It important to note that TEFL teachers are not likely to be paid the same as fully qualified teachers and packages are not as attractive, however if your after a cultural experience you really will have a great time teaching here.
Salary packages often include housing, flights and a two year package. Tax ranges from 2-7%
TEFL positions in a primary or secondary international school will require a bachelor’s degree with a primary or secondary teaching qualification in addition to having TEFL. Again experience is recommended.
English teaching jobs in Korea should also pay for half of the money put into the mandatory national pension fund, though at present only American and Canadian citizens are eligible for pension fund reimbursement
Finding work in the Asia can be a daunting experience with so many varieties. Be sure to discuss any concerns you have with your SeekTeachers™ consultant to put your mind at ease.
