Details of Position
We have been open for 18 years, but in the past 5 years we've really hit our stride and have opened a dedicated English building with extremely attractive, modern classrooms, a STEAM building and multiple other expansions. We would love to find someone interested in helping us to continue moving forward, while also developing their own teaching skills. We have a diverse team of fifteen 'international' teachers complimented by our excellent Taiwanese staff. The core of the business is elementary English, but we need good junior-high and high school Headway teachers, sports coaches, STEAM and coding teachers and/or those with multiple skills.
We're a Shane English franchise cram school sand won the Shane Taiwan national management award for 2019 and have grown into the biggest franchise Shane school in Taiwan and the largest English school in our county. We've done this through teamwork, professionalism and innovation. We firmly believe in the Shane ideals of English immersion and learning through play and yet we are also quite unique; our school has a football pitch, a 4-storey climbing wall, a Lego classroom, a full size table-football table, a STEAM building, English library, coffee shop and within the next year we hope to open even more spaces. Both our students and teachers have a chance to pursue whatever they're interested in, relax, have some fun and feel like their time has been well spent. A high teacher retention rate and when teachers do leave they are often furthering their teacher qualifications in pursuit of DELTAs or PGCEs.
We will hire the best candidate available, but we are trying to build a varied team of gender, ethnicity, nationality and culture - although we can only hire teachers eligible for a work visa (Taiwan requires foreign English teachers to be from an English-speaking country). We will provide you with a work visa while you are in your home country and then on entry to Taiwan we will process your resident visa. Our teaching team is made up of a mix of teachers who are CELTA/DELTA certified, have years of experience all over and those who started here (a few years ago). Strength lies in variety and if you can bring different skills, backgrounds or passions to our team then we would be extremely excited.
