Details of Position

Spend a summer working in a fascinating country and experience a unique cultural combination of old and new, traditional and modern at Apollo English in Vietnam.

***End of summer contract completion bonus!

We have a significant number of vacancies to cover our extensive summer programme. Contracts include a short induction, classroom observations and a short training programme before teaching starts. Our friendly team offers ongoing academic support throughout the summer.

At Apollo you can expect:
• Commitment to professional development and high-quality teaching standards
• A wide range of resources and modern facilities
• A variety of courses and learners
• Academic and personal support from a dedicated team


Inductions will start throughout July and accommodation will be provided from the day before the induction begins. It is crucial that teachers arrive in Vietnam no less than one day before the induction start date to get settled in and be ready to start the induction and training (this is non-negotiable).

Teachers will be teaching the young learner summer programme from kindergarten through to teens. Depending on the placement centre, some teachers may be asked to teach the extra-curricular activities programme.

Classes are scheduled between 7.30am and 10.00pm Monday to Friday, 7:30am and 8:15pm on Saturday and Sunday; teachers may be scheduled anytime during these hours. Generally, teachers are timetabled to work on average of 4-6 hours per day, 5 days a week, with two consecutive days off.

Placement testing and attendance at extra-curricular activities are paid at an administrative rate (2 administrative hours = 1 teaching hour.). Normal administrative duties such as preparing for classes, marking tests, writing reports, attending in-house training and meetings, etc. are considered part of teaching duties and therefore there is no extra remuneration for these.
