WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
The Vietnam Teaching Program
The Vietnam Teaching Program is a start-to-finish placement service that transports you from career stress to teaching success. Taking care of everything from securing a job to settling into your new city, it allows you to focus on enhancing your resume, meeting amazing people and having an all-round awesome time—because that’s what it should be about, right? It helps you:
Secure a legal job
you know—the kind that earns you up to $1400 per month, comes with the right visa and won’t get you deported.
Bag a professional certification
that’ll give you the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to walk into the classroom with your head held high.
Make new friends
with people who, just like you, are adventurous, awesome and ready to embark on something new.
Gain skills and confidence
to set you apart and have you heading back home a more well-rounded professional ready to take the job market by storm.
Feel at home in a flash
and start making the most of your adventure from the day you enrol—say goodbye to pre-flight freakouts.
WHAT YOU’LL DO
You’ll teach oral English to groups of around twenty students at a local private school for 80 hours per month. The school provides teaching materials, so you just need to pack bundles of energy and enthusiasm.
Most of your classes will take place during the late afternoon and evening on weekdays and during the daytime on weekends. You’ll get two days off each week, on certain weekdays.
You’ll work with a range of age groups and abilities, from beginners to intermediate learners aged between 3 and 17. As an after-school class, you’ll find most students want to be there, and their behavior reflects that.
Your salary will depend on how many hours you work each month, reaching up to $1400 per month. But whatever your schedule is like, you can rest assured you’ll earn enough to live, explore and save.

It’ll be online, and it will cover all you need to know to start teaching with confidence – from behavior management techniques to teaching theory.

HAVE YOU GOT WHAT IT TAKES?
Who we’re looking for
While we’d love to help everyone who wants to launch a career in Vietnam, we’ve gotta follow the rules. So, as Vietnam work permit laws state, this program is only open to applicants who:
English speakers from the UK, Ireland, US, New Zealand, Australia, Canada or South Africa
Hold at least a bachelors degree (in any subject)
Complete a TEFL course before arrival in Vietnam
Have received an internationally-recognized vaccine
Have the funds to pay for the program and associated costs
Check the course dates and deadline
Start your teaching adventure on the first of every month of the year. Just make sure to check the application deadline first.
|Program Start Date||Application Deadline|
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.
