English Language Teacher Needed in Penang


We need a new teacher to start immediately in our Bukit Mertajam Centre

Enhance Education Sdn Bhd specialises in teaching English. We have four teaching centres in Penang State with a total enrolment of more than 2000 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, but there is especially strong demand from pre-school and primary students.

We seek a teacher who meets all these essential criteria:

> Substantial recent experience of teaching English to children aged 4 to 17 years.

> Native English speaker with a university degree in any subject.

> CELTA or Trinity London CertTESOL or direct equivalent.

We need a teacher who can relate well to young children and who has an active and lively teaching style. We use a range of well-known coursebooks 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 2 hours per week. This means that most classes are held at weekends and on some weekday evenings. Nonetheless we do guarantee all teachers two consecutive rest days each week, usually on Mondays and Tuesdays.

We offer a professionally supportive environment and a locally competitive pay and benefits package including health insurance and pension premiums. Depending on qualifications and experience, most starting salaries are from RM7,250 to RM7,800 per month with additions of a 12% pension supplement and an RM500 location allowance for the mainland: a total package of RM8,620 to RM9,236 per month. Assistance with relocation and settlement costs is available including 14 nights in a hotel on first arrival and an interest-free car purchase loan.

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 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 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 Sdn Bhd is a young company that is growing quickly. The senior staff all have strong educational backgrounds and considerable experience: the Principal is Dr Tom Craig-Cameron, formerly Director of British Council Malaysia; the Deputy Principal is Ross Beattie formerly of the Garden International School in Kuala Lumpur; and the two Senior Teachers are Emma Talbot formerly of British Council and Sue Back who is a UK Qualified Teacher.
