This is not a routine teaching post its an opportunity to join a small, focused organisation that really makes a difference to young peoples' lives in one of the worlds least developed countries.

Classroom hours are between 18 and 22 per week. You will be required to use your own innovative and stimulating lesson ideas to augment the text book course. Some weekend work is necessary and you would also host regular Teacher Workshops and attend monthly meetings.

Our students are both ethnic Lao and Hmong and their ages range from 12 to 25, although most are between 15 18 years old.

We are more than an English Development Centre. Central to our ethos is linking English study with sport and creative skills and developing leadership skills among our students. We have structured weekend football-coaching sessions for both male and females, using qualified student coaches. We have developed a culture of film making among our young people through professionally taught workshops. Students now direct their own short films which regularly feature at the Vientiane Film Festival.

We also run specific projects focusing on Female Development and have a student managed coffee company to develop basic business skills.

Salary and Benefits

An allowance (up to $600 pcm) and a work visa will be provided for the Lead Teacher role.
