Your TEFL qualification

You’ll need a TEFL qualification before you can secure and start a job in Vietnam. If you don’t yet have one, don’t worry – we offer a course to help you get started.

Your teaching placement

With the support of our team and in-country partner, you’ll find an English teaching job in a local private school. You’ll teach for a minimum of 40 hours per month and a maximum of 80. Your salary will be affected by your hours, but you can rest assured you’ll earn enough to live.

HOW IT WORKS

Whether you’ve already got a TEFL qualification or not, we’ve got an option for you.

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

FAQs

Still got questions? See if we can help

Good question. No, Impact Teaching is a UK-based agency that connects students and graduates with schools and teaching placements across Asia. We don’t own or operate a school ourselves, but we do know a good (and a bad) one when we see it. We seek reputable partners and provide comprehensive support services to ensure that you can relax in the knowledge that someone’s always got your back.

All visa related fees are to initially be paid by you, the applicant. 

Nonetheless, we’re here to guide you through the process and ensure you know what you need to do and when you need to do it, in the most efficient, affordable way.

Launching a teach abroad adventure is complicated and time consuming; we’re here to make it easier through start-to-finish support services that help you get a visa, get qualified, settle in, and make the most of your adventure. For our team to be able to do this, we require all participants to pay a program fee. If you want to go it alone, we’re not stopping you, but at Impact Teaching we’re all about simplifying things with placements you can trust.

IMAGINE if you did. We don’t reckon we’d get many applicants, do you? 🤣 Of course, if you’ve got ‘em, flaunt ‘em. But if not, that’s A-okay. In fact, the program is designed to fast-track TEFL newbies to teaching success, gaining a qualification, and picking up a bit of the lingo along the way.

Easy. We know the schools, the process and the requirements like the backs of our hands. So, we know exactly what to look for in our first-round screening calls. Once you pass this, it’s pretty much a dead cert you’ll get an offer in no time.

Absolutely… we can’t guarantee you’ll be at the same school (we’ve gotta share the awesomeness around), but we can help you find positions in the same city.

If you’re a final-year student or graduate looking for the ultimate opportunity to explore South East Asia, secure rewarding employment and boost your resume, then this is for you.
