5 reasons to teach in Vietnam and at VAS

Working and living in Vietnam as an expat has many benefits. Vietnam is a tropical and cultural paradise that has one of the highest economic growth rates in Southeast Asia. It is an ideal destination for many international teachers due to its cheap cost of living, rich culture, fantastic food, friendly people, and wonderful students. Vietnam has emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic in a strong position thanks to the swift action taken by the Government. Education professionals in Vietnam are highly respected and regarded, making teaching in Vietnam a great opportunity for teachers to bring value and feel valued.  

One of the world's absolute best countries to work in – Vietnam was ranked as the 5th Best Destination for Expats in 2022 by Fortune and was the 10th Best in 2021 as ranked by InterNations.

Our teachers are truly an international group, bringing a mix of experiences, cultures, and skills to our school.

Career progression – being part of a fast-growing school of 6 campuses and nearly 7,500 students, our expat teachers have a chance to develop their careers and gain further accreditation through our Cambridge International Professional Development Centre. Many of our teachers are promoted internally each year to various management-level positions.
