Come and experience the wonders and be part of the positive changes in the Golden Land of Myanmar. Brainworks-Total Group of schools are located in the Southeast Asian country of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma). In the nine years since our founding, Brainworks-Total Group of Schools has expanded to 11 branches with over 2500 very motivated students, and 400 dedicated teachers and staff with ongoing expansion plans. We focus on both experiential learning with high academic standards as well as personal/self-development skills, creating future young leaders, service to the community and participatory activities. We also believe in reflective teaching and our instructors and teachers work collaboratively at all levels to continuously evaluate and improve student learning. At the same time we also have a strong emphasis on developing, training and empowering local Myanmar teachers, staff, and parents.
We offer a twelve-month contract but are very focussed on giving our students certainty and continuity and prefer applicants who are prepared to commit to 2 consecutive one year contracts. Our Academic year runs from mid June through to early May. Included in your package we will provide shared quality house/apartment style living accommodation with other international teachers. We also cover all visa costs, school lunches and local transportation, Myanmar language classes, basic medical insurance and paid vacation. We will also cover your flight arrival costs to Myanmar from one of the nearest airports in the region (Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur), and will purchase a return ticket to that airport upon successful completion of the contract. For those that show enthusiasm, dedication and a natural desire to improve them selves, the people around them and the school there is also ample room for advancement and promotion.
US$1500-US$1800 depending on experience.
Note: While the salary may be less than teachers are paid in some western countries international teachers usually say because of the low cost of living in Myanmar they can live a far easier and more affluent lifestyle in Myanmar than they can on a teachers salary in their own country.
