We need new teachers to start in December 2016
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 we especially need teachers with a strong preference for teaching pre-school and primary age students.
We seek teachers who meet all these essential criteria:
ïƒ¼ Substantial recent experience of teaching English to children aged 4 to 17 years as well as to adults.
ïƒ¼ Native English speaker with a university degree in any subject.
ïƒ¼ 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 teachers who can relate well to students, especially children, and who have 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 locally competitive pay and benefits package including health insurance and pension premiums. Depending on qualifications and experience, starting salaries currently are from RM7,540 to RM8,110 per month with additions of a 12% pension supplement and an RM500 location allowance if you work in a mainland centre: a total package of RM8,944 to RM9,585 per month. Assistance with relocation and settlement costs is available including 14 nights in a hotel on first arrival and interest-free settlement and car purchase loans.
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 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 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 Sue Back is a CELTA and UK Primary Qualified Teacher; and the two Senior Teachers are Emma Talbot (DELTA) and Jamie Carter (MA Education Management). We also have experienced Lead Teachers who manage and support the teachers in each centre. Please look at our web site for more details: www.enhance-education.com
