We need new teachers starting July (start date flexible)
Enhance specialises in teaching English. We have four teaching centres in Penang State with a total enrolment of more than 2000 students per term and in 2017 we are expanding our operation to Kuala Lumpur. 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. We are hiring for a number of positions in both our Penang branches and our new KL branch.
We seek teachers who meet all these essential criteria:
- Substantial recent experience of teaching English to a range of learners from young learners to teens and adults.
- Native English speaker with a university degree in any subject.
- 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.
We offer a locally competitive pay and benefits package including health insurance and pension premiums. Depending on qualifications and experience, a total package starting from RM8,445 per month. Assistance with relocation and settlement costs is available including 14 nights accommodation on first arrival.
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.
Our first new centre in KL will be based in Klang comprising spacious classrooms in a new retail development. Kuala Lumpur is a vibrant, diverse capital city with a number of options for accommodation and with most condos having good facilities. KL has many local parks and wildlife areas around the city which offer a great opportunity for residents to get out of the city and unwind in nature for a while, as well as being famous for the wide variety of different cuisines on offer around the city.
Enhance is a young company that is growing quickly. The senior staff all have strong educational backgrounds and considerable experience including the Director Dr. Tom Craig-Cameron, formerly Director of British Council Malaysia. 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
