Key Program Details
Whilst Cambodia is lesser known when compared to bordering Thailand and Vietnam, this actually works to your advantage! You will find cheaper prices for food, travel and activities, as mainstream tourism has yet to inflate the cost of travelling and experiencing the country. This means teaching salaries go a long long way, and enable you to maximise your enjoyment of the country in your spare time.
Living in Cambodia will mean you’ll be in a land of smiles, amazing weather and spectacular scenery that will provide the backdrop for many amazing pictures and memories to treasure your time in this laid back paradise.
This is a nation on the rise and very much looking to the future, and teaching English in Cambodia at this time will mean you will be part of a legacy that will shape the country for centuries to come. Whilst the focus at this time is firmly on the country’s future, looking at it’s history gives you another emphatic reason to experience this Southeast Asian gem! The country is home to many ancient temples including the famous Angkor Archaeological Park and has a host of other attractions and outside activities that mean you will never have a dull weekend! Being in the hub of Asia means you will have easy and affordable access to all of the surrounding countries, making Cambodia a perfect place to teach English abroad.
This program consists of 4 weeks TEFL training, which will be a mixture of daytime study and some evening work and assignments. TEFL trainers will make sure you have everything you need to become a confident teacher of English (TEFL) in the Cambodia.
Once qualified, the world is yours and you can use your TEFL certificate in other countries - there is no expiry date to the TEFL certificate. The TEFL certificate is externally accredited and accepted worldwide.
After gaining skills, making friends in this period is what it is all about. Spending so much time each day around the same people who are in the same situation means friendships solidify quickly. Everyone wants to support each other. It's one of the great benefits of starting your journey teaching abroad in this way.
During the TEFL training period, we give you all the tools, resources and contacts you need to secure a paid teaching job. Most jobs are secured within a few weeks after the course, and sometimes even shorter than that. A great benefit is to have our experienced in-country TEFL team at your disposal recommending good places to work, and where to avoid applying for jobs.
In Cambodia, most teaching jobs are in private language centers or private Primary and Secondary schools, so you could be teaching school students or adults, depending on the employer and your desired direction.
Contract lengths are a minimum of 3 months, with generally no upper limit. Salaries vary, but are around the equivalent of 1000 - 1600 US dollars per month, and living costs are around comfortably 500 - 700 USD.
Anyone can come on this course and teach English in the Cambodia. In terms of the job placement services, through our experience we know those who are native English speaking and who hold a bachelor's degree (any subject) secure jobs within 30 days after the end of the training - and in most cases this is shorter.
Those who are not native English speaking or do not hold a bachelors degree can also attend this course and for job placement we advise them to be as flexible as possible as to salary and location. Native English speaking teachers are preferred in the Cambodia, but many employers will accept non-native English speakers as long as they are fluent in English. Non-native English speakers may have to wait a little longer to get a job in their desired location.
Accommodation during the 4 week training period is complementary, and is in Western style accommodation in either a serviced residential property, or a hotel. You will be 5 a minute walk from the training centre making it super convenient.
After training and when you are in your teaching job, the type of accommodation available is generally the same, however it will be at your own cost. This will be around 220 - 300 US dollars. Obviously the more you pay the more you get, but that will land you some very comfortable housing. Doing the course with others helps you to make friends and it's common to share accommodation with those friends afterwards when you start your teaching jobs.
Start dates for this TEFL Program are generally every month and places fill up fast. Cambodia is a popular location for teaching English abroad, so we suggest you apply early in order to get your desired start date.

This course provided me with a variety of opportunities that I would not have otherwise had. I really liked the fact that it was on-site because this gave me time not only to adjust to a new country but also to make invaluable connections with others on the course.
Cambodia has a warm tropical climate all year round meaning you can really enjoy a great outdoor lifestyle. With stunning coastline, islands and many inland attractions you’ll be outside a lot!
In life, relationships matter! Your relationship with your students will be the thing you treasure the most in your time abroad.
Cambodia is right in the hub of Asia meaning you are in a the perfect place to explore the surrounding countries. What makes it even better is that flights can be really cheap too!
