CfBT Education Trust is pre-screening English Language Teacher Trainers for a major project in Malaysia. This ambitious initiative involves improving both the proficiency and the pedagogy of English teachers across the nation.

You will have the opportunity to utilise your teacher training and mentoring skill to make a real difference to the quality of English language teaching and learning. To be successful in this role, you will need to be independent, flexible, resilient and self-motivated. Many postings will be in remote, rural locations and while we provide an extensive professional and pastoral support network you will need to be comfortable with often being the sole trainer in the community you work in.
