    Teaching Job in Myanmar Available

    I posted this in TV teaching and Myanmar forums, but got no interest at all!

    BTW, this is a different vacancy to the job that I was due to start a few weeks ago. My job is being held open for me while I sort out a funeral in the UK. This is an additional vacancy at the same school.



    An international school in Yangon is seeking a year 4 homeroom teacher, for immediate start or to commence from August 2014.

    The homeroom teacher will teach all non-specialist subjects to a small (16 students) class of 8-9 year olds, following the UK National Curriculum at Key stage 2.

    Subjects taught are English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Design Technology, PSHE, Library Studies.

    The school is seeking male or female applicants, with no upper age restriction. Applicants should have previous homeroom experience, as well as experience of teaching the UK National Curriculum.

    A degree qualification is required, but need not be a B.Ed. Other relevant qualifications could be a PGCE or PGCEi, as well as relevant CPD courses, such as Early Learning. But enthusiasm and professionalism are also major characteristics that are sought.

    This is not an ESL or TEFL vacancy.

    The expected salary is $2,100, plus $700 accommodation grant per month. Tax rate is 5%. Medical insurance and visa-run fees are covered.

    If this vacancy sounds of interest, please PM me and I'll send you the email address of the school recruiter.

    Yangon is a very interesting place to work, but applicants should also be aware that living in Yangon cannot really be described as a 'luxury' posting. The city lacks decent hospitals and there is a lack of infrastructure, such as reliable electricity supply, international banking, international phone calls/SMS and fast internet.

    But it is a great city for the adventurous!

    Oh, NES teachers only please.

    That's amazing, considering I haven't told you the name of the school....

    The average salary for a public school teacher in Detroit is $72,000.00 - three times as much. And, I doubt they have to be NES - eubonics would probably suffice.

    It can't be that hard to figure out.

    Different levels of International schools, and this is the starting salary, presuming your friends have not just begun their first contract there.

    Well yes, I'm well aware that there are different levels of International schools, and the laughably low qualifications quoted here suggest this is not a top one, but nevertheless, I am still surprised at the figure.

    I should point out that like many developing countries, the term 'international school' is often used to describe what is really a bilingual school or EP (English Programme).

    Nevertheless, the school is modern and has a good reputation. The formal qualifications required are flexible and not stringent - they offered me a job after all....

    Yes, fair call I should have realised that. And therefore the salary's probably quite reasonable.
