We are currently recruiting for a number of roles across Myanmar in cities such as Yangon and Mandalay. Successful candidates will hold a PGCE or equivalent and have relevant teaching experience in their subject. Additional visa requirements may apply.


Why sign up with Worldwide Teaching? Our dedicated consultant James taught at international schools in South-East Asia for 6 years and thoroughly enjoyed his time there. He believes it is a fantastic region in which to live and teach, whether it’s your first overseas role or if you already have international experience. He knows the area inside out and can advise on the benefits of moving and working there.


Why move to Myanmar? Those with a sense of adventure and the desire to get off the beaten track a little are rewarded by what Myanmar can offer in terms of lifestyle, work and travel. You can explore vibrant cities like Yangon and Mandalay, serene spots like Lake Inle, and the majestic Temples of Bagan (James did an early-morning hot air balloon ride over these - a real bucket-list activity!). Locals are welcoming and friendly, and the cost of living is among the lowest in Asia. You can discover unique cuisine, including Burmese curries and tea-leaf salads. If you like outdoor activities, there’s trekking in Kalaw and other famous spots, or river cruises on the Irrawaddy. Myanmar is also a great starting point for travelling within Southeast Asia and beyond with major international airports throughout the country.


There are a range of international schools in Myanmar, from new and growing start-ups to more established schools. The sector here is growing rapidly and there are many schools opening every year. In terms of benefits, what can you expect? Burmese international schools will generally offer a good salary with good saving potential, as the cost of living is extremely low compared to the Western world and even compared to other countries in South-East Asia. You’d also receive help with housing, usually in the form of an accommodation allowance, medical insurance, flights to and from the country (either annually or at the start and end of the contract) free or discounted tuition for your children (usually up to a maximum of two) and visa costs covered.
