TLTP Education secures recruitment contract for schools across Asia
Together these schools provide international education to over 9,000 children across 61 different nationalities.
TLTP will be responsible for recruiting mainstream English-speaking teachers from pre-school up to Key Stage Four level. This latest overseas contract for TLTP follows other similar recent contract wins in Saudi Arabia, Mexico and New York City.
“The market for English speaking teachers wanting to work abroad is a highly competitive one,” explains TLTP managing director, Darryl Mydat. “Figures suggest there are more than 150 countries across the world in which English-speaking teachers are welcome whilst the British Council estimates there are 1.55 billion English learners around the world, and an estimated 700,000 native English speakers teaching overseas at any one time. Many of them want to work in Asia which is why we are delighted to be working with Eton House.”
Standards are extremely high in schools across Asia where it is recognised that English language skills are integral to compete in western markets. It has become the staple language for international communication, particularly in business and this increase in the use of English has led to a consequent increase in demand for both those able to teach it as a foreign language as well as mainstream expatriate teachers. Eton House International Schools and Pre-schools offer an academically rigorous education where children are encouraged to become critical thinkers and lifelong learners through an international, inquiry-based programme.
“Candidates who accept positions across Asia tell us that it was amongst the most intellectually engaging and culturally rewarding experiences of their lives,” adds Mydat. “They enjoy immersing themselves in another culture and relish the chance to learn a new language. Many of them find it presents opportunities and engenders skills that make them more effective, rounded teachers as their careers progress.”
