SIE.K, part of the Shepherd International Education group, has two academies located in exciting Seoul, South Korea. Across our two locations, we are proud to sponsor twenty English-speaking staff from around the world and look forward to adding more enthusiastic educators to our growing teams. SIE.K is currently accepting applications for new English-speaking homeroom positions opening up this August, in advance of the 2021-2022 school year. 

The SIE.K program follows an American-styled Early Childhood Education curriculum with a focus on English immersion. Homeroom teachers, with their Korean co-teaching partners, are responsible primarily for supervising their young learners throughout the school day to safeguard their well-being and happiness at school. Other responsibilities for English-speaking teachers include leading English-based subjects that vary according to the age of students but generally include English Language Arts, Phonics, Literacy, and a Song & Movement class. 

Successful applicants will be joining a friendly team that is enthusiastic about nurturing young learners. Applicants should expect to work a full-time job in a professional education setting. However, work expectations are reasonable with no overtime required—we hope all of our teachers will enjoy a balance of work and life while enjoying their time in culturally rich South Korea. 


Academy Locations:

  1. Samseong Branch: Located in south-central Seoul within a 10-minute walk to Samseong Station
  2. Amsa Branch: Located in south-east Seoul within a 10-minute walk to Amsa Station

Hello and welcome to Shepherd International Education. We are an accredited English-immersion international institution located in Seoul, South Korea. We cater to a wide range of students, from kindergarten (SIEK) to elementary, middle, and high school (SIE). We pride ourselves on our global outlook, diverse staff, and commitment to pedagogically sound education.

At SIE, we believe that students are successful only when given a safe and nurturing environment. That environment should include high expectations, excellent instruction, consistent discipline, and a caring atmosphere. At the same time, the institution must have a commitment to working together with families for the best outcome for the child. We always do our best to provide each student with this type experience. In return, we ask students to make good choices and to show respect for themselves and others.

The end goal of SIE is to prepare students for competitive universities, but we aim to instill the values of diligence, critical thinking, and leadership. We are a tightly-knit community focused on excellence. We have great teachers, friendly students, and a beautiful campus. The absolute best way to experience what SIE has to offer is through a visit to campus any time.
