HCMC to recruit 100 native English teachers  

July 3, 2012
Ho Chi Minh City’s education department will recruit 100 teachers who are native English speakers for a project aimed at enhancing the English skills of students next school year.
According to the project recently announced on the department’s website, as of 2020, each local school will have at least one teacher who is a native English speaker.
Candidates must possess English teaching certificates such as the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), the Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT), and the Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL).
Further details pertaining to the requirements, recruitment as well as the job itself, however, are still being drafted by the department.
The department also plans to recruit 762 Vietnamese English teachers, who will also be required to have international certificates like the TOEFL or those granted by European testing organizations, the Dan Tri news website reported.
