Just what you need to get started

While AVSE-TESOL’s core business is delivering Australian Government accredited TESOL programmes, we recognise that we’re not the only provider of quality English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher training. If you already hold TESOL/TEFL certification of substance, our Teaching Jobs Abroad Programme is a brilliant pathway to secure your first ESL teaching job in Vietnam or Cambodia. Given the inclusions and the outcome, this programme is equally suitable for newcomers to teaching English abroad – and experienced ESL teachers who are newcomers to teaching in Vietnam or Cambodia.

The Teaching Jobs Abroad Programme at AVSE in HanoiHo Chi Minh City and Phnom Penh is ideal for folks who hold government-regulated TESOL/TEFL certification (nationally recognised training in the country of origin). Does this sound like you? If so, we’ll extend a helping hand by: 1. ensuring a ‘no fuss’ arrival in your chosen city, 2. assisting with assimilation and an immediate social network, 3. honing your practical teaching skills over nine days – and, importantly, 4. placing you in a paid ESL teaching job with a vetted partner school. You can reasonably expect to be in a paid teaching job within two weeks of your arrival. This terrific programme removes the guesswork and insecurity connected with travelling to Vietnam or Cambodia and finding your way in unfamiliar surroundings.

 What’s included?

Here’s a snapshot of what’s included with AVSE-TESOL’s Teaching Jobs Abroad Programme:

  • Designated ‘go to’ person for pre-departure guidance (visa, insurance, vaccinations…)
  • Accommodation within walking distance of the AVSE-TESOL Training Centre for the first nine days
  • Assistance with a local SIM Card and internet access
  • Welcome party (in conjunction with our regular TESOL classes)
  • Cultural immersion workshop
  • Introduction to partner schools
  • Six hours of observing ESL classes at partner schools
  • Eight hours of teaching actual ESL classes at partner schools (the first six hours are critically assessed)

  • Guidance with changing your visa status, permanent accommodation and other pertinent issues


Teaching Jobs Abroad Programme New AVSE-TESOL


Throughout the Teaching Jobs abroad Programme, AVSE will be by your side – a trusted partner – until you’re living like a ‘seasoned campaigner’ in your chosen teaching destination.

We’ll take care of your accommodation for the first nine days. Sorting out your cell phone with a local SIM card and accessing the internet will be priorities immediately after your arrival. In conjunction with our regular TESOL classes, you’ll have the opportunity to attend a Welcome Party in the evening on day one (complimentary food and drinks). The Welcome Party affords the opportunity to make a bunch of new friends – all of whom are on a similar mission – within a matter of hours of your arrival. AVSE-TESOL staff will make sure you know how to get to all the important places – shops, supermarkets, banks, restaurants, your embassy, transport modes, where to find a decent coffee, a cold beer, the best sandwich and any other ‘must have’ on your personal list.



Once you’ve acclimatised and know your way around the city where you’ll live that long-held dream to teach English abroad, nailing down a decent teaching job that pays at least market rates becomes the priority. Job placement involves three easy-to-navigate components: 1. observation classes, 2. teaching actual classes (supervised), and 3. transition to employment.

Observation classes

Your designated support person at AVSE-TESOL will arrange six hours of observation classes at partner schools. What does this involve? You’ll observe actual ESL classes in a real school environment. We pair you with three or four experienced ESL teachers, and you spend time observing their classes. You’ll see different approaches to teaching and learning and get a feel for what it’s like working with local students. In addition, the observation classes provide a stress-free introduction to working as an ESL teacher in a new location.

Teaching actual ESL classes (supervised)

Once your six hours of observation classes are done and dusted, you’re given the opportunity to physically teach eight hours of ESL classes at partner schools. AVSE will provide the content for your classes and lesson planning support. The first six hours of teaching actual ESL classes will be supervised and critically assessed by an experienced local ESL teacher. You’ll receive constructive, verbal feedback after each class. It’s all about identifying what worked well in a local context, what didn’t and doing even better next time. The last two hours in this phase are unsupervised.

Step three: Transition to employment

By the time you reach the transition to employment phase, you will: 1. know your way around Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City or Phnom Penh, 2. have visited different schools while fulfilling commitments under the Teaching Jobs Abroad Programme, and 3. be ready to hit the ground running as an ESL teacher. AVSE-TESOL staff will help you prepare a Curriculum Vitae (Resume) that’s responsive to local expectations. We’ll even schedule ‘mock interviews’ if it would be helpful. But, most importantly, we’ll refer you directly to the decision-makers in our extensive job placement network – the very schools where you’ve already spent time observing and teaching ESL classes.

The AVSE-TESOL team will be by your side until you’re in a paid teaching job, typically by the end of week two – within 14 days of your arrival.

What’s next?

At US $750.00, it’s a brilliant deal – designated ‘go to’ person for pre-departure guidance (visa, insurance, vaccinations, and the like), accommodation for the first nine days, a Welcome party with other aspiring ESL teachers, cultural immersion workshop, observation classes, teaching ‘practice’ opportunities in a supportive environment, job placement in our network of partner schools – and much more.
