The Job

We are looking for teachers with a sense of adventure to live and work on this amazing island. If you want to secure your teaching position abroad and teach in a tropical paradise, now is an ideal time to come and work for our community serving, dynamic schools. We are recruiting teachers for Taiwan all year round!

You will start work around midday, and can enjoy the security of being paid for 80 hours a month-even if you don't initially work them for those vital first 6 months when most teachers suffer a dip in their finances.

The role: 

As an EFL teacher choosing to teach English abroad, 'cultural diversity' will no doubt feature on your list of motivations.

  • You can expect a warm welcome from the Taiwanese. Their approachable and hospitable attitude will provide you with ample opportunities to learn about Taiwan.
  • The island is packed full of diverse landscapes, from the bustle and excitement of modern city life to more tranquil and traditional hot springs and night markets.
  • There are also fine beaches and, in the mountainous interior, miles of hiking trails. There really is so much to do there, within just a year you can easily explore and enjoy Taiwanese life, food and even the language.
  • The close proximity to the rest of South East Asia provides the opportunity for travels further afield too.
  • Teaching jobs in Taiwan are available in various locations across the island throughout the year.

The perfect candidate

You will need: 

  • To be a native English speaker (UK, USA, CA, AUS, NZ, SA or IRE) 
  • A minimum of a 120-hour TEFL certificate
  • Experience with children
  • Bachelor’s Degree
  • To be able to commit to a one year contract
  • To be 18 - 50 years old
