Good thread, KW.

I'm about to leave right now to go meet with some people that are building a new school in North Jakarta (or maybe West Jakarta). It sounds like they're looking to staff up for the 2011-2012 school year 'cause I think the school is set to open in August. I don't know much yet (my old principal left to go help start up this school, she's the one who asked me to come in today) but if it's promising, I'll post the details here.

NB: Monday is one of my days off, so I'm not skipping work to go talk to a potential new employer! I'm a good employee, I swear! :)

24-01-11, 20:23
The meeting I had today seemed promising. I don't know anything about their staffing needs or salary/compensation package yet. Since they're a brand new school, there are no former/current employees to ask about the working conditions or payment rates.

We submitted our compensation request with their formal application package (Rp. 20-25 juta per month, free un-shared housing, transport as necessary, multi-entry visa, all school holidays as paid vacation time, annual plane ticket reimbursement of $1,500, annual bonus of one month salary at Christmas, health care, fully-paid immigration/tax/etc...) and there were no raised eyebrows or sighs of disbelief, so I'm thinking that's probably right around what they're willing to pay their expat teachers. (Or perhaps they were willing to pay more and I just undercut myself!)

I still want to know more about their academic plans and school structure, so it'll be a while before I'm willing to give it the SamanthaB seal of approval. (Plus, they haven't even made a formal offer of employment.) If I find out that they're looking to hire more expatriate teachers, and I think they're a school that's going to be on the up-and-up, I'll be sure to post it here.

I know that gffgold's old position at Sekolah Bogor Raya is open, at least it was a week ago when I spoke with the principal. They need a native English speaker that's qualified to teach IGCSE level physics and chemistry and they're hoping to have them start right away. The school is in Bogor (obviously) and I don't know anything about salary or working conditions, but thought I'd pass the word along for any science teachers that might be interested.

Thanks, KW and Atlantis. We've been talking to a few different schools and we've got a few different offers, but we're really interested in this one. Even though there are schools that pay better, we're intrigued by the mission statement of this school. If everything they say is true (their commitment to social justice, community service, green living, etc...) it's a school that is really in-line with our own personal values. We'll see how it goes-- they said they'd have a draft of the proposed contract ready for us to view by this weekend. If it all goes well, I'll ask them if they're looking for anymore teachers and spread the word.

My school (Mentari International School Jakarta) is looking for a couple of teachers. The campus is in Prapanca, South Jakarta. About a 5 minute walk from EP in Kemang so you can always make it to pressure hour.
They are looking for an MYP Science and MYP Math teacher. Only qualified teachers are considered. It is a good school, it is small but for me that is one of my favourite aspects. Pay is pretty good, not as high as some of the bigger schools but still very competitive.
If interested you can send your CV to my principal, Ms. Elena Racho at [email protected] ([email protected]) or give her a call at 081311321944.
If you want any more info on the school please feel free to send me a PM.

I've known teachers who taught there part time and yes it was technically illegal.
*Note* This is based on hearsay so take it as you will:

From what I have heard, Binus's salary is competitive when looked at the hourly teaching rate. However, they tend to require 2-3 hours of paper grading for every 1 hour of teaching. When you look at it in this light, you would earn more per hour teaching at a generic English center. I've known 2 teachers who worked there. Neither continued after their first batch of classes were over.

On the other hand, my wife worked part time at Binus for a while, taught a few classes a week. She seemed to enjoy it.

I have heard that many people are not interested in hourly paid in Jakarta, because to go from one place to another, take a lot of time. In the meanwhile, people did not get paid for the commuting time.
So even you get more pay, if you count the commuting time, and marking as well, you will be worse off.
Some schools could manage it by putting the teaching schedule in one day so people just need to go there once in a week or so.

I don't know anything about their curriculum or working conditions, but I checked out the facilities and they're top of the line. They're running two separate programs out of the space-- a daycare and a Montessori school. From what I could tell in the short time I was there, the staff were all professional and well-spoken (in English) and the school was immaculate and organized. Seemed lovely.

Do a native English speaker need TOEFL ?..

I know for sure that a natiive English speaker are not allowed to sit for IELTS test.
Since IELTS and TOEFL have a similar nature, presumably they are not allowed.

Also from the name suggest that a native speaker if he takes TOEFL english, they are not native as English is his mother tongue and not a foreign language for him.

Because your competency of English is probably very similar to an Indonesian who is fluent in English.

A native English speaker provides a specific aspect of the language you can't learn outside of their environment.

Most schools have both native and non native English teachers, each performing a different role in the teaching experience.

I know Indonesians who teach ESL and the are not Native speakers(this is different to teaching English. This is usually a Degree specific qualification and if you had those qualifications you may be able to get a job.) I suspect you want to teach ESL or EFL as you quote TOEFL. You could/ can teach ESL but not as a Native speaker. You might be surprised at the TOEFL score that lots of native English speakers would get if they sat the exam. TOEFL testing and succeeding can be taught, this does not also guarantee native fluency. Good luck look for a job as an ESL or EFL Teacher and leave the Native ESL EFL Teacher jobs to the "natives".

I can understand what you feel, friend.
Dunno the main reason behind that. Government regulations? Can be.
I'm a native Indonesian, got Indonesian teaching license, but I do not feel special that I will teach Indonesian better than non Indonesian.
For me teaching is not a born gifted skill, people must strive hard to be a great teacher.

In Japan I work as an English teacher and get paid as much as "natives", but in my home country, Indonesia I'm offered a close to "Pembantu" salary as I'm just a local.
IMHO, Indonesian is not prepared to pay her own people properly yet and not prepared to provide proper jobs for the skillful ones.

Are you just looking to work in a language school? National schools start back in July. Start of September would be better as Ramadahan will just have finished.
If you are looking to move late August I would be applying now as it can take some time to process the visa. To give you an idea I signed my contract at the end of April and have been told that the approval for my KITAS will come through at the start of July. It can come through quicker in some places than others I've had mine come through in 2 weeks before.

You are right, most schools hire between January and April for starts in July. The really crap schools will have postings after July, but only because they're desperate and don't have their act together enough to recruit enough teachers before the school year starts. That, or teachers have left in the middle of the year, or they just offer a pathetic compensation package.

Yes, I'm angry.

waarmstrong
22-08-11, 14:38
Perhaps there are "crap" schools still looking late in the hiring season, but there are also a lot of good schools looking late, as well, for a number of reasons -- did not get the teacher they were courting, hard to fill specialty positions, visa problems of hires, first-time expats who get cold feet, or once in country cannot adjust to the environment and just the usual "shit happens" sort of stuff. Making stereotypical assumptions is not really in a potential-recruit's best interests.

Challenging, because many schools refuse to admit that they have students that may need special ed.

However, if you get a job at a school here, start by asking yout gf about her school, if it is an IB one, it is already middle of the range.

STB-ACS http://www.acsjakarta.sch.id/ is looking for a Secondary Chemestry and Primary Science Teacher. Although the web site says "Indonesian who graduated from overseas preffered," you might want to send them a CV. I see as well from an ad in the Jakarta Globe that the British School http://www.bis.or.id/ is looking for a "Health and Safety Advisor." Maybe your cridentials match that one? Worth a look.



I have taught the MYP science program so I am fine with lower level Chemistry and Physics. But for any advanced levels, I would pretty much be able to only teach Biology related classes.

You are right, most schools hire between January and April for starts in July. The really crap schools will have postings after July, but only because they're desperate and don't have their act together enough to recruit enough teachers before the school year starts. That, or teachers have left in the middle of the year, or they just offer a pathetic compensation package.

Yes, I'm angry.

hey jared... that's what happened to my fiancee too when he was trying to applied for some schools in indonesia.. tried bali (greenschool, tumbletots), semarang (stamford international, Singapore international, and Mondial), Jakarta (JIMS, SIS, Kanaan) and Batam (SGIA) all schools really have a terrible management of hiring people... which made my fiancee really angry.. :(

In that case, there's loads of good international or national plus schools that will hire him. I suggest any school behaving like that is not really a good school. Tell him to contact some of the schools mentioned in this thread and/or also to go via an agency like Search Associates or International School Services. He can also check jobs via TESonline (free).

Morning

I'm an teacher at an international school in Indo and often use a Uk teaching forum. A guy from one of the big Jakarta international schools recently mentioned they get literally hundereds of CV's sent to them. Many UK tecahers cannot find work at home and of coiurse many others like the thought of living in a foreign country. My point is that securing any kind of job in an International school is competitive, and it is well known that only on rare occasions will a school answer an email sent to them, even if it an application for a job. I've sometimes had skype interviews where I've not been contacted for 3 weeks afterwards, probably because they've got a better candidate lined up. When there is an excess of employees, the power is with the employer. It is not personal, and yes it is rude, but just the way it is. Th better schools will always conduct themselves in the correct manner.

What do you mean by a majority (uncompleted) teaching degree. Do you mean you don't have a teaching degree because you dropped out? Or are you in the process of completing the degree?

If you don't have a degree at all despite having the TEFL for young learners you won't get many takers. Not with the law being as it is at present.

My advise would be to get your teaching degree and some experience. Then many more doors will open up to you.

Challenging, because many schools refuse to admit that they have students that may need special ed.

However, if you get a job at a school here, start by asking yout gf about her school, if it is an IB one, it is already middle of the range.

hi King Willy...

seems exactly what you said...my Fiancee's IB school planned to have SPED Program but the plan would not take off from the drawing board as they seems would not admit the need or simply they havent done any cost analysis matrix for a profitable program to cater the marginalized kids with various special needs.

There are many schools that use non-native but highly-qualified foreign teachers. I was at a workshop a few months back and met several Indian teachers that work at Bunda Mulia International School (http://www.bmis.or.id/). There's also Gandhi Memorial International School.

If they can justify hiring Filipinos, there's no reason they wouldn't consider an Indian national.

I had read through some of the information on this thread regarding National +/International schools, specifically SamanthaB's tip-offs about HScope. I applied to HS with the aim of this salary range (20-25) even with minimal extras, no housing included. With several years of teaching experience I expected to hear a good response from them, but was disappointed to hear a return offer of 7-10. :frown2:

Any ideas of what went wrong? Is this asking too much when most other teachers (natives) are working for relative peanuts? Samantha, is there something I'm missing?

Thanks all.

SamanthaB
16-03-12, 11:13
Whoa. 7-10? That's insane. You could work at EF and have a better salary than that. What school was it? Each of the HS schools are franchised, so each owner will make different offers. The Simatupang school is the only *actual* HS owned and operated school.

In my opinion, and in my experience, a low-ball offer would be something like 12-15 per month. I know with absolute certainty that there are native speakers working at HS schools getting paid in the 20-30 range with benefits like housing, medical, and transportation.

Under no circumstances should you accept an offer of 7-10 with no housing-- it's insane and they're trying to rip you off. (I'm saying this with the assumption that you're a native speaker with a degree.)

lowongan
16-03-12, 11:24
Thanks for the (speedy) reinforcement - the word 'lowball' came to mind myself. Yes, I'm native/degreed/experienced and even local, being slightly lower-risk as far as international hires go. This was the Bali branch which would put it roughly on par with Jakarta rates, no? I'm of the understanding that you're at the Jakarta branch, and are doing well there? Would you recommend any of the other branches of HS (outside Jakarta - no offense, but ugh), or know of any that currently have openings? What do you mean the other branches aside from Simatupang are not owned by HS, although the website appears to encompass all locations?

SamanthaB
16-03-12, 11:38
I think Bali schools actually tend to pay a bit less than Jakarta schools-- there are plenty of expats willing to live and work in Bali but not as many eager to set down roots in the Big Durien. Because of that, schools here in Jakarta have to add a bit of an incentive in the form of higher salaries and extra perks. That being said, 12-15 is still about as low as any qualified teacher should be willing to go, regardless of where you're at.

Where HighScope Indonesia is concerned, the website makes it look like they're all centrally owned and operated, but that's not the case. The Simatupang school is the primary franchise holder for Indonesia and it's the *only* school that they own and operate. All of the other schools are franchised by individuals. There is still curriculum oversight and training provided by the Simatupang branch, but as far as wages, management, and working conditions go... It really depends on the school's owner.

My husband and I worked for two different HighScope schools under two different owners. We both liked our jobs and were satisfied with our compensation. The owner of my school, however, was a complete nightmare to work for. The owner of my husband's school was lovely and professional. However, we were offered jobs at a different school and left HighScope about 10 months ago.

I don't know a lot about the HighScope branches outside of Bali. I do know, however, that one of my local colleagues, from HighScope, applied to teach at the Bali school and was offered a wage significantly less than what she was earning here in Jakarta. Maybe it's that branch?

lowongan
16-03-12, 12:24
It's a bit disappointing to hear that there are no wage standards across these HS franchise schools. If I buy a Starbucks in a different country I expect the price to be consistent, only reflecting a change in local cost of living. However, I was expected to attend a 2-month training in Jakarta, along with all other new teachers, which I suppose accounts for teaching and methodology standards.

It could be that your teacher colleague was accepted in Bali for the lower rate than I was willing to go! That might be a bar-setter that affects all subsequent applicant's salary expectations. I'll look into other branches as my heart isn't necessarily set on Bali (it's more specifically Denpasar, after all).

Thanks for the information. It's very helpful in making these decisions. Sounds like your husband got the long end of the stick with the good manager - which branch was that, by the way?

SamanthaB
16-03-12, 13:02
Oh, by local colleague I meant an Indonesian teacher. She is actually Balinese and was hoping to transfer to the Denpasar HighScope to be closer to her family. They offered her a job but the salary (according to her) was a joke. So, she opted to stay in Jakarta.

My husband worked at the HighScope in Kelapa Gading-- they have classes from toddler through primary 9. To the best of my knowledge, my husband's replacement was offered (and accepted) Rp. 25 juta per month with no housing/transportation benefits. The new teacher's contract should be expiring in June of this year and I don't know if he's planning to stay or not-- you could email the Kelapa Gading school to see if they're hiring. The owner's name is Lauren. She's good people.

Hi lowongan,

My hubby is also working in Highscope but in TB Simatupang, Jakarta branch. As far as I know, the offer is way better than what you mentioned... But as Samantha had said, Bali schools usually offer low wages since loads of native speaker wanted to work there. I'd been in Bali 5 years ago and sad to say, for a non-native speaker Science teacher like me, I got better offer than what you have now...Oh well,,, maybe things are different now .

Thanks kverz/Samantha, I'll consider Simatupang and Kelapa Gading. Too bad the website is terribly outdated and contains only 2010 vacancies. ??

So I suppose the lesson learned is Bali salaries are naturally going to be lower (by 2x?) than Jakarta salaries because of the 'perk' of being in Bali alone.

Kverz, I personally think it's incredible the kind of wage difference between natives and bules, simply because of the chic appeal rather than the innate cabilities of the teacher. I think native teachers should be treated with respect and should be making good salaries if they can perform the same quality work. I remember salaries of Cambodian and Lao teachers are some of the lowest in SE Asia, about 350,000 IDR/month. That's a societal travesty.

Anyone looking for a top level expat Programmer, web applications developer or project manager? I have over 20 years experience in programming and 5 in PM. I would be happy to send my resume to anyone who relies me. I am recently returned to Batam to spend time with my Wife and Son here, but my saving is fast running out.

Think you've posted in the wrong place. This is for teaching jobs.

If it's true, details would be nice. Did the school promise legal working docs and then failed to provide? Or did the expat accept the illegal work knowingly?

I think it was a protracted period of waiting for visa processing which is becoming increasing increasingly common here.....went on too long and the said teacher was 'found out' when immigrasi visited the school. Even an experienced outfit like High/Scope is experiencing problems. I'd recommend anybody applying to a school, whether it's ESL or 'regular' International to find out themselves [if they can] as much about requirements for work visa [kitas] issuance so that they don't spend a protracted period working illegally. Of course, you need to rely on the competence of the HRD......

As far as I know the person has been issued a KTAS before and lost it when she went out for holiday failing to realized that her multiple re-entry permit expired but still went out the country despite immigration warned her that her KTAS will be null and void if she will. Went back on tourist visa and now the school needs to get her a new Ktas but then the immigration follows her to the school to check after a month and there you go, she don't have one yet...

Hi damedane,

It seems that June is an odd time to find a job in Indonesia since most schools fill in their staff vacancy around February to March. Though some schools may still be looking... Try searching on JobsDB Indonesia website. Good luck to your job search.

Hello there!

I am teaching in an international school in Jakarta at the moment and I have a couple of questions:

1. Is it possible to get a job in one of the universities to teach English/provide English Language support? If so, where do I look for employment opportunities for that?

2. Is January/February too early to look for teaching jobs for academic year that begins in July/August? This is for international schools. Again, where do I look for employment opportunities.

Ideally, I would like to teach outside of Jakarta, say Central Java (Yogyakarta, perhaps, since there are quite a few reputable universities in the city). I want to bid farewell to smog, pollution and macet :p

In terms of qualification, I have Bachelor and Masters degrees, as well as a teaching qualification from my home country, plus teaching experience. I hope that puts me in good stead.

Any comments, feedback and suggestions will be very much appreciated :)

Too late. The recruitment agencies have their fairs in Dec/Jan.

However, if you dont mind getting the left over jobs, keep your eye on all of their websites and you'll find jobs advertised from Dec-Jul/Aug ... depending on how their recruitment goes.

No real offers have been made in my several attempts(in the last 2 years) probably on the remuneration package they think they can not decide. I wish I could put up a school instead if I can only get some partners locally with only my professional service as capital.

How I understand it having spoken to people at different schools in Indonesia is that each school has a set quota of foreign staff that they are allowed. Again this quota is further separated by subject/year group. I've never heard that this is dependent upon nationality of expat. An expat is an expat, no?
