Secondary English Teacher

CfBT Education Services (B) Sdn BhdBrunei Darussalam

CfBT Education Services (part of Education Development Trust) are looking for Secondary English teachers to begin work in government schools in Brunei Darussalam during 2022. CfBT have been working with the Brunei Darussalam government for over 30 years in support of the bilingual education policy. Our focus is to raise the proficiency and attainment levels of Bruneian students through high impact teaching and learning in classrooms, specialised national support and intervention programmes, and the continuous building of our own and local capacity across primary and secondary schools and sixth form colleges. There are over 96 Primary and 104 Secondary teachers on this programme with many teachers staying for a number of years.

At secondary level, Bruneian students follow a national curriculum in Years 7-8 and progress to one of three streams; General, Applied or Special Applied (vocational), for upper secondary Years 9-11. Students in the General stream sit for the Brunei Cambridge O Level English examination at the end of Year 11 and students in the Applied stream sit for the Cambridge IGCSE ESL exam. In the vocational stream, students engage in a functional English language programme while enrolled in a specialised technical syllabus. Our secondary teachers work in all levels from Year 7 to Year 11 and across all academic streams. Teachers need to develop students’ written work and there is a strong focus on grammar, vocabulary acquisition and extension as well as reading and thinking skills.

Brunei Darussalam is a small, peaceful country on the island of Borneo in South East Asia. It is surrounded by pristine tropical jungle and beaches with temperatures around 27 - 30 degrees all year.
