Myanmar International School (MIS) is a well-established Cambridge Curriculum school in Yangon, formerly Rangoon, the capital of Burma.  Situated near picturesque Inya Lake and the country’s most modern shopping mall, MIS offers an attractive environment for teachers looking for an opportunity in South East Asia.  With a roll of 720 aged from 3-18, classes are capped at 20 students and are often smaller with a level of resources comparable to schools in the UK or North America. Parents are highly supportive and our students are hardworking, respectful and enthusiastic. Our talented teachers come from the UK, USA and other English speaking countries.  Myanmar is developing fast and yet it retains much of the lifestyle, tradition and culture that has perhaps been lost elsewhere in the region. Yangon is a safe and peaceful place to live and work.

Above all, we want to recruit inspirational and committed professionals who work well with colleagues and who have the resilience to see life in a developing country as an exciting challenge.

  • Bachelor's Degree

  • Teaching qualification in an English speaking country

  • Desirable experience:

  • Experience in working with students whose first language is not English

  • Two-year renewable contract

  • A competitive salary with significant savings potential. The cost of living in Yangon is estimated to be 60% lower than that of London.  https://www.expatistan.com/cost-of-living/comparison/london/yangon
