The Program

If there’s one thing for sure, it’s that you should never have to pay to work. And with us you won’t have to; but, to be able to offer the support, guidance, training, and resources we’re known for, we require all participants to pay a program service fee.

You’ll need a TEFL before you can start teaching in Vietnam. If you don’t have one, the fee will include a course and cost £530. If you do, this drops to £450.
