Teaching Positions Soar as Borders Reopen in Asia

With the end of the pandemic finally on the horizon, and a lack of teachers on the ground, the need for native English-speaking teachers is on the rise. Popular teaching markets like Japan, Taiwan, and Vietnam recently reopened their borders, allowing foreign teachers back in, and joining South Korea and Thailand in a major push to hire English instructors for the summer and autumn 2022 intakes.

Boasting a strong network of established contacts at schools across the globe, the Job Placement Service has continued to place course graduates in desirable ESL teaching jobs over the past two years. As the demand for new English teachers currently outstrips supply, thousands of jobs are available every month, and Oxford Seminars graduates are highly sought after.

Your Ticket to the World

Completing Oxford Seminars' certification course means that you've already signed up for the adventure of a lifetime! Looking for a great job? Want an unforgettable experience? Are you ready to explore the world? Our Job Placement Advisors are ready to get you started. We lhave all lived and taught abroad, and will walk you through every step of the job search process. 

We are happy to report that the demand for English teachers is still incredibly high in many countries including South Korea. In response, some schools in South Korea are offering higher salaries than usual to attract new teachers for positions starting throughout 2022. Positions are available across Taiwan and Vietnam for teachers wanting to depart in practically any month, and language schools in Japan are looking about six months ahead.

Are you seeking a short-term contract or a tropical location? If so, one-term (5-month) teaching jobs starting in May and November are available through our contacts in Thailand. Year-long teaching contracts are also available.  

For those looking to teach in Europe in September, youth programs in Spain are interviewing qualified candidates for their autumn 2022 intake. 

Numerous in-country teaching positions are also available in Latin America for people looking to experience Latin cultures and languages, including popular destinations such as: 

Our contacts in many other countries around the world are accepting applications as well. Due to the temporary travel restrictions to some parts of East Asia, including China and Indonesia, the starting dates for many teaching positions in those countries is expected to be in the autumn of 2022. Contact our Job Placement team to get the latest details and to apply for those available teaching positions.

Can I Apply to Teach Online?

Yes! Some of our grads are choosing to temporarily teach online as a convenient alternative to going abroad right away. In the current environment, the opportunity to teach online can be either a temporary or a permanent teaching solution. We have contacts with several online ESL schools and we have assisted our graduates throughout the pandemic in finding online teaching positions.

Job Placement Advisors: Alex, Rowan, Cat and Luke
 I’ll admit right off the bat that I was wary and unsure of how to approach searching for jobs overseas, as the vast quantity of them was simply overwhelming. Thankfully, with the help of Oxford Seminars and its placement program, the whole process was really streamlined. My Job Placement Advisors did a lot of work on their end, and I was soon buried under an avalanche of phone and Skype interviews. - N.E., Vancouver, BC
