Top English teaching jobs in Brunei

Teaching in Brunei

With a beautiful coastline on the South China Sea, Brunei is located on the North Coast of the island of Borneo, surrounded by Malaysia on three sides. Brunei is considered to be a developed country and is ranked 4th in the world in GDP per capita, making it one of the richest areas in the world.
Although Brunei has maintained a long association with Britain, it is an independent, sovereign state with its own culture and perspectives. Culture shock is something to be prepared for with any overseas teaching position. Flexibility, patience, tolerance and a sense of humour are all qualities of inestimable value to a newcomer. It is best to adopt a pragmatic approach and try to work within the system as effectively as possible. Brunei, like many countries, has an education system in a state of development, as the government aims to establish a curriculum that suits the needs of its citizens in a rapidly changing world.
