You will be qualified with a degree and be a native English speaker and have a wide range of teaching and training experience with a good understanding of the TEFL environment. Experience in a previous DoS role is desirable as is experience living and working in a foreign country.

This will require all of your creativity and initiative as you work mostly independently to plan and implement your new directives that will ensure further success for our school.
