Taiwan Kicks-off 2022 Fall Recruitment of English Teachers & Teaching Assistants


The Ministry of Education (MOE) launched the Taiwan Foreign English Teacher Program (TFETP) in 2021 to expand the recruitment of foreign English teachers and teaching assistants, to create more opportunities for Taiwanese students in primary and secondary schools nationwide to learn English. 

To qualify to teach English in public schools in Taiwan, candidates must be native speakers with a bachelor’s degree or higher degree, a state-issued teaching license or credential, and a clean criminal record. The monthly salary for English teachers ranges from NT$62,720 to NT$91,420—equivalent to approximately US$2,250 to US$3,300 subject to the exchange rate—and they also receive a travel subsidy, health insurance, and other benefits. Salary will be determined based on the teacher’s highest education level and years of full-time teaching experience. 

Candidates for English teaching assistant positions must also be native speakers with a bachelor’s degree or higher degree, and a clean criminal record, but they don’t need to have a state-issued teaching license or credential. English teaching assistants work with local teachers to create an immersive English learning environment that encourages students to actively learn English and improve their overall English proficiency. Teaching assistants receive a monthly stipend of NT$45,000, equivalent to approximately US$1,620, and a travel subsidy, health insurance, and other benefits.

There are many reasons why foreign teachers love Taiwan. It is rich in beautiful natural landscapes, diversified cultures, fantastic local delicacies, and warm hospitality, Taiwan also offers a safe environment and world-class healthcare.
