Job Description

Are you passionate about teaching and eager to advance professionally? Join our thriving team in the heart of Vientiane, the charming capital of Laos!

We offer a diverse range of teen and adult courses, and are seeking motivated EFL professionals to teach our Young Learners program at a local private high school, in addition to courses at our main campus. Successful candidates will be expected to teach between 18-24 hours per week.

At IH Vientiane, we prioritise professional development and support our teachers every step of the way. Committed to excellence, we strive to make a positive impact not only in the lives of our students, but also among our staff members.

'Vientiane is the friendliest city I've ever worked in. Lao people are generally quite shy, and nervous of talking to foreigners. So learn some of the language - it's easy to pick up some basics - smile, show you're interested and always accept invitations. You'll quickly make friends and find yourself part of a warm and fun-loving community. There's nowhere like it!' - Gareth E

'IH World is a great network to be a part of, I really feel like it's connected me with so many opportunities for personal development and career growth.' - James T

Other benefits

Accommodation: Airport pick-up and hotel arrangements upon arrival. The school will provide full support in finding accommodation.
Visa: Full visa and work permit support
Holiday: School and public holidays adhere to the Lao academic calendar and Lao law. Paid leave is determined by individual employment agreements.
