    Just to let you know that the 4th position, Secondary School Individual & Societies Teacher has been filled.

    Also, while we welcome the concept of people trying their luck, if you do not have a degree in English (or Bachelor of Childhood Education for the Primary positions) we cannot hire you legally. (and we do put our teachers at risk by insisting otherwise)

    The five years minimum experience is also a government requirement, and it must be five years in the same level (Kindergarten, Primary, Middle or High School); this is also a non negotiable government requirement.

      Out of curiosity are the salaries in USD?

      I would apply but my 5 years of teaching have been divided fairly evenly between Special Needs, Highschool, Primary School and Vocational Education and Training.

      Fingers crossed you find some great applicants!

        They were, but BI changed the regulations and forbids any (most) transactions and salaries in USD in Indonesia. Therefore we comply with the law and all salaries are paid entirely in IDR.

        However, we guarantee a portion of your salary pegged to the USD rate.

        Keep us in mind in the future, once you do have five years experience in one area.

          Hi,

          When you say 5 years experience, is this 'post-grad' or just 5 years experience?

          Cheers.

            Five years experience as a full time teacher in the role and level as the job advertised. (This is a KITAS requirement)

            eg: If you are applying to be a Primary school teacher, you must have minimum 5 years FT experience as a Primary School teacher in a formal school. (English language schools, or tutoring do not count)

            eg2: If you are applying to be an Secondary school English teacher, you must have minimum 5 years FT experience Secondary school English teacher and you degree must be in English or English Literature.

            So, I guess yes, it would have to be post grad. Because a part time lecturing or tutoring job while you are completing your degree does not count.

              If one has an undergraduate degree in a subject other than English, but has a Master's in English or a Master's in TESOL, a state teaching license, and 5 years experience, would that be acceptable?

                What if the Post Grad Certificate was completed whilst teaching? I have 12 years experience in schools, and 7 years Primary experience in International schools, but only completed my PGCE last year.

                So, a bit confusing...

                  You would be fine - in fact, you could apply at top-tier International schools I believe.

                    As far as I know date of completion is not a concern, unless the immigration officials we submit the documentation to are being particularly picky on the day. (we do have to submit the actual resume, so they will see it)

                    A Masters in English would be fine, but a Masters in TESOL would not.

                    Gee, thanks.

                    Though, technically, there are no international schools in Indonesia, top-tier or otherwise.

                        Well, personally, I do not think whether a school is international or not is in the name. There are many school that have the international requirements but not the name.

                          I think this discussion might be confusing for newbies looking to teach in Indonesia who are browsing the forum to glean info.

                          On their behalf, an explanation everyone else can skip: the Ministry of Education, in its oh-so-infinite wisdom, has outlawed the use of the word "international" for all schools in Indonesia that aren't limited to the children of diplomats (or maybe all foreigners, I can't remember). Schools like Jakarta International School, Australia International School, and British International School - those are among the best-known examples but there are plenty more - have had to change their names (to Jakarta Intercultural School, Australia Independent School, and British School of Jakarta).

                          As I write this in January 2016, you may still find websites on the internet for schools in Indonesia that use "international" in their names, but that's because they are slow to comply with the law. When the law was first promulgated (sometime in late 2014 if memory serves), JIS for one hoped it would be temporary (one reason behind their small-as-possible name change). That may have been overly optimistic, though; as far as I know there has been no talk of rescinding the rule.

                            Guys, I'm reading through requirements to teach in Indo and I'm running into a lot of conflicting information both here and on other websites. No two job postings are alike either. What are the bottom line requirements to teach ESL here legally?

                              Not to be a jerk, Windmill, but the positions listed above aren't really ESL. The whole curriculum is in English, so we're probably looking at an English course like you'd see at home (in Rockville, Pennsylvania). Having said that, I'd take a stab at your question, but would potentially be misleading you. If you thread it, they will come.
