ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT/TEAM 

There is strong demand for English language learning in Vietnam, being driven by the country’s economic growth, increasing internationalisation and a government vision for the future which is predicated on significantly improving levels of English language proficiency.

As standards evolve, certifications like IELTS are also becoming essential for access to national and international study opportunities and qualifications and the wider employment market.

The British Council’s teaching presence currently counts three locations in Ho Chi Minh City and two in Hanoi, but three new centres are slated for opening in summer 2020 as part of an ambitious project to very significantly expand our presence over the coming years to respond to market demand and opportunity.

 

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING AND WHY
Teachers are usually assigned to work in one teaching location, although sometimes work in more than one location is required.

Teaching young learners (aged 5 to 17) represents over 70% of the activity nationally. The British Council currently delivers courses to around 4,500 young learners and 1,700 adults at any one time. This is expected to grow substantially in the coming months and years, and the new centres will be dedicated mainly to young learner teaching.

WHAT IS INTERESTING ABOUT IT
This is creating opportunities for employment in ELT in a country which is a dynamic, diverse and exciting place to live and work.

The opportunity to develop professionally within a supportive, experienced and diverse team is one of the strongest attractions for teachers, combined with the opportunity to experience life and work in a fast-developing country with a rich cultural heritage and international ambitions.

 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
If you are Cambridge CELTA, Trinity CertTESOL or equivalent qualified, with at least 1 year post-qualification experience (600 hours) work with us and you will have access to equally high-quality training and learning


BENEFITS OF WORKING AT THE BRITISH COUNCIL
- Enjoy 35 days of Annual leave
- Fight to post and baggage for staff and their accompanying dependents (applies only to staff recruited from outside Vietnam).

- International medical insurance scheme
- Professional development opportunities – we offer a broad range of professional courses to large corporations and that is available for our staff members too!

 

Our work makes a lasting difference by building more inclusive societies and supporting people’s prospects.

Together, we can do more.

ABOUT THE BRITISH COUNCIL

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust.

We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society. Last year we reached over 80 million people directly and 791 million people overall including online, broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934, we are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body.

Valuing diversity is essential to the British Council’s work. We aim to abide by and promote equality legislation by following both the letter and the spirit of it to try and avoid unjustified discrimination, recognizing discrimination as a barrier to equality of opportunity, inclusion and human rights.

 

All staff worldwide is required to ensure their behavior is consistent with our policies.

 

The British Council is a full member of Keeping Children Safe (KCS) and has achieved level 1 child safe certification. We believe that all children have the right to be protected from all forms of abuse as set out in article 19, UNCRC, 1989 and that every child matters - everywhere in the world. In line with the British Council's Child Protection policy, any appointment is contingent on thorough checks including criminal record checks, in line with legal requirements.
