ILA Vietnam is currently recruiting for English Teachers to teach at a number of our centres in Ha Noi.

ILA is Vietnam's leading English language school with 45 centres in 12 towns and cities spanning the length of the country. We employ more than 800 Native English Speakers and provide ongoing professional development and excellent career opportunities for all staff.

80% of our students are Young Learners from ages 3-17 years old. All teachers are required to teach all levels. If you are new to teaching Young Learners, then don't worry. At ILA we run a Young Learners training course for ALL new teachers. This paid, week-long course, will provide you the skills you need to teach our students 'The ILA Way'.

We have small class sizes (maximum 19 students) and offer all the support and resources a teacher could wish for.
