English Language Support (ESL/EAL) Teacher


·         Applications close Friday January 17,  2014


·         Job starts mid-August 2014


·         Full Time, with initial 2-year contract



Garden International School is fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and the Thai Ministry of Education (ONESQA). We are affiliated to the International Schools Association of Thailand (ISAT) and the Department for Education in the United Kingdom. We are also a founder member of the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA).


Garden International School is a coeducational school of around 460 students, with classes from Early Years to Year 13. We have around 40 nationalities represented in our community and use an educational framework based on British curricula, leading to IGCSE and the International Baccalaureate Diploma.  The school has a wonderful sense of community and class sizes are generally small, with the students well behaved, engaged in their learning and supported by their families.


Many of our students have English as a second, or even third, language. We do however have strong English Language Support departments and students only enter mainstream Literacy classes on reaching required levels of proficiency.


Ban Chang is in Rayong Province, about 2 hours from Bangkok and 45 minutes from the bustling tourist hot-spot of Pattaya. Thailand is a vibrant and exciting country with rich cultural experiences, it is a beautiful part of the world with year round sun and is a safe place to work overseas. The cost of living is very reasonable and teachers tend to avail themselves of high quality holiday experiences around the region.


For this position of ELS Teacher in Secondary, a majority of the teaching will be with students from Year 7 to 10 and within the CIE KET, PET and IGCSE frameworks. The ability to teach a second subject is an advantage. This position will be Local Hire, which means all expatriate benefits are included except for the Flight Allowance and associated Baggage Allowance.

Garden International School offers:


·         An attractive salary with pension allowance

·         Health insurance and accident insurance

·         End of contract bonus

·         Housing allowance

·         Two year contract (renewable on mutual agreement)

·         Tuition Fee remission for up to two dependent children
