TEACHING IN THE TROPICS
Indonesia is the perfect place to get away from the worries of the west and enjoy the energy of the east.
We are looking for experienced teachers to teach a variety of subjects at one or both of our schools here in tropical Sumatra. Subjects include English, General Science, Physics, Maths, Design and Technology, Food Studies, Chemistry, and Biology
Recent immigration requirements mean that a work-visa will not be issued to anyone without a relevant degree, a CV showing 5+ years experience and for teachers of English must possess a TEFL certificate.
All teachers need to have a high standard of English and teachers of English should be native speakers. Experience teaching IGCSE, TOEFL, ESOL and IELTS will be a distinct advantage.
Class sizes are small and students polite and receptive 'usually'. You would be joining our experienced team of teachers from around the globe and management who will happy provide all the initial support you might need.
Our day school, Chandra Kusuma, enjoys a vibrant learning environment, with lively extra curricular activities and social events adding colour to the students work schedule. The successful candidate should be able to add to these programs with their own skills and interests.
CaSE is our language school that provides a number international examination courses for our more motivated students, while also running courses for students who want to learn in a more relaxed and fun atmosphere after a hard day at school. We will be looking for a talented individual who can contribute something special to our friendly, professional school.
Salaries are very competitive but are entirely dependent on qualifications and experience, at the very least it provides for a pleasant standard of living. We provide medical insurance, flights reimbursement, and housing allowance.(the school has accommodation to rent for up to 12 months)
Medan is the third fifth biggest city in Indonesia, but by South East Asian standards, has the feel of a rather overgrown village. Although not the most cosmopolitan of cities, it makes up for it by lying on the doorstep of the tropical rainforest for which Sumatra is famous. The renowned orangutan sanctuary in Bukit Lawang is just a couple of hours away. There is the opportunity to go jungle-trekking, rafting, river-tubing, elephant trekking and much more, all within a short distance of the city. For a long weekend, you'd be hard pushed to beat the relaxing, panoramic tranquillity of Lake Toba or diving around Pulau Weh island.
