Job Summary

Lorosae English Language Institute (LELI), Timor-Leste's leading language organisation, is currently recruiting experienced and appropriately qualified EFL teachers to work on an English language program for the Timorese military in an exciting, multifaceted role.

Details of Position

Lorosae English Language Institute (LELI), Timor-Leste's leading language organisation, is currently recruiting experienced CELTA qualified EFL teachers to work on an English language teaching program for the Timorese military in an exciting, multifaceted role.

Successful candidates will be required to teach 18-22 contact hours per week with a maximum of 24 hours where emergency cover is required. In addition, teachers are required to contribute to curriculum development and create authentic materials for our students as and when specific learning needs emerge within the military context.

Successful candidates will be working as part of a small team comprising of 7 experienced EFL teachers, 1 Senior Teacher and a Project Manager. In addition, the English Language Training Facility (ELTF) has a team of 5 Timorese English language teachers who successful candidates would be working alongside and mentoring.

The teaching is conducted off-site at a modern, purpose built training facility approximately 50 minutes drive outside of the capital city, Dili.

LELI was established in 2002, and having developed an excellent reputation, is now recognised as the premium English language training organisation in Asias newest country, Timor-Leste. Our clients include a variety of government ministries and respected national institutions, prestigious international organisations, local businesses, and private individuals.

Students at LELI come from a variety of backgrounds, and many have had their education disrupted due to Timor-Leste's years of struggle for independence. The standard of education and the methodology most students have been exposed to in Timor-Leste means that some students have difficulty with modes of abstract thinking. In conjunction with building students English language proficiency, EFL teachers at LELI also help to develop students analytical and critical thinking through a range of different teaching strategies.

Successful applicants must be flexible, work well as part of a team remaining polite, professional and patient even under sometimes difficult circumstances, and have the ability to cope with the challenges associated with living and working in a developing country. Living in a hot, remote location where infrastructure issues are commonplace requires teachers to be highly motivated and have a positive attitude.

Timor-Leste can be a challenging environment at times, but it is also a land of opportunity for those willing to invest their time and energy. The country is going through positive change and the successful candidate would be helping to make a genuine difference in the development of a nation that is rich in culture and history.


All applicants must hold a CELTA, have a minimum 5 years English language teaching experience, and must have completed a Bachelors degree.
Experience in teaching academic skills classes highly desirable.
Experience in teaching English in the military context highly desirable.
