Teaching English in Taiwan Program applications due April 25

1/24/2022

Through a memorandum of understanding with Taiwan’s Ministry of Education, the Department and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Chicago invite Ohio English language arts, English as a second language and world language teachers to apply to the Teaching English in Taiwan Program. The program seeks experienced and recently retired teachers who hold current Ohio licensure. Educators selected to work in Taiwan will teach English as a foreign language to elementary or middle school students for one academic year. Initial teaching contracts are from 10 to 11 months, depending on the placement.

In Taiwan, each Ohio teacher is paired with a Taiwanese classroom teacher. In addition to providing English language instruction, teachers work with Taiwanese educators to develop curriculum, prepare lesson plans and teaching materials, conduct classes and evaluate student progress.

Applications now are being accepted for the 2022-2023 school year. The deadline to apply is Monday, April 25.

To read more about this special opportunity and access the application form, visit the Department’s International Teacher Exchanges webpage and look in the Outbound Teacher Programs section. Direct questions to Ryan Wertz.
