m2r Education are looking for English Language Teachers to join an exciting Ministry of Education project in Brunei for a September 2024 Start!

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.

In Brunei, Standard Malay, is the official language, but English is viewed as the principal language of business. The Bruneian government began its bilingual education policy soon after independence in 1984. English medium instruction is mandatory for all students commencing in Year 1 of primary school in the key subject areas of mathematics, history, science and geography as well as English.

Since then, the Bruneian government has remained committed to its bilingual education policy, and our client's relationship with the government has strengthened and widened in scope from a key recruiter of high quality teachers, to developing a range of English-related education, assessment and professional development projects across Brunei.

They recruit, orient and manage some 200 qualified, experienced, expatriate teachers of English and provide ongoing quality support and assurance. The teachers work with more than 20,000 students across Brunei in more than 80 per cent of Brunei government schools.

Their specialised solution has resulted in a transformation of performance with more than half of the government school student cohort obtaining grades equivalent to native-speaker level (A*-C); an increase of more than 30 per cent in a 10-year period compared to a 5 per cent increase in the previous 10 years.
