  • Salary for teachers in Indonesia

    I am wondering if anyone knows the going pay for teachers here in Indonesia? Can anyone give me a general idea what the hourly pay would be for a foreign teacher(English speaking) teaching in a national Indonesian school (Junior/senior hight school)?

    I can tell you that English First language schools pay 8,000,000 RP per month ($720) with some kind of health insurance and a return plane ticket home. Thats all I know about teacher salary here.

          Freddy boy,

          Rp 8,000,000/month in Indonesia is still to be consider as a high salary. Somebody (Indonesian) start a new job in Indo probably only get paid around Rp 2-4 million/month for starter. However, I agree with you, for expat it probably a poor salary as you get used to those and $$$ as well as due to the higher living cost. If you prepared to live in kampung or in a kost rather than an apartment than it probably will be enough.

            Is that all?? I knew a guy who was being offered a salary of 15,000,000 by the british institute as an english teacher.. and that was 3 years ago! At the time he was teaching for EF (english first) and his salary was around 8-10 mil. Surely the salary standard has gone up by now!

              Hi Pauleslteacher,

              Regarding that 15-20 million salary in a national plus school. Who is it valid for? Is it only valid for a native English speaker teaching English there? I'm an Indonesian, at the moment doing my degree in Education Studies and will later on do a PGCE to get my teaching qualification. Honestly, I didn't have a plan to teach in Indo due to the salary, from what I know teacher's salary are not that high. But 15-20 million sounds good enough for me

                Hi Paul,

                I'm not sure yet what I'd like to teach in the future, I didn't plan to teach English. I like little children so probably will teach in early years or primary school. If they have Bahasa Indonesia curriculum in England sure I'd be interested in that.

                About your company, English Solutions,is it going to be an English School like EF and ILP? If I need an experience after graduation then I'll have to contact you for a job lol.

                  Mmmh, I didn't realised that some of the schools are taking advantage of the teachers. Your plan sounds great Paul, will you open a branch in Surabaya as well? Just curious, maybe I can recommend my cousins to go to your school instead of the others .

                    "Personally...I've recently opened an English services company called English Solutions and will be hiring native and local teachers along with people of other backgrounds in the near future... "

                    Hi Paul,
                    If you need native english teacher, could my husband apply as he was english teacher at some english course and now he free lance and teach in private.

                        I have been in Indonesia for over 10 years teaching English... I started wrorking for EF in Medan and taught with them for 4 years... I know many teachers that have been taken advantage of and treated badly by many schools that only care about making money.....

                        So I decided to open an English services company with a progressive thinking Indonesian partner and we are going to have a very successful company that cares about it's teachers (both Western and Indonesian) and students and focuses not so much on the profit but on the result... Also a fun place to work that cares!

                        Its nice planning. I like if there are many expat who have social sense when they live in Indonesia. Coz like or dont like, indonesia will be their work country and they must hv nice goal for this country although its js in small think..

                        Surabaya? Great, it would be nice. I m agree Endang coz i stay there.

                        I m waiting your planning in Surabaya, Paul.
