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.
