Ethiopia Job Listings

Government-mandated English language secondary education in Ethiopia has been a boon for those seeking to secure a TEFL or ESL job in the past few years, and opportunities abound accordingly in the land where coffee was discovered.

Teachers can expect to find work in government schools, language schools and private institutions. That’s the good news. The bad news is the salary, which ranges from USD $285 to $400 a month. But, and this is a big but… that is enough to live comfortably in Ethiopia, where the cost of living is startlingly low. So, by Western standards, where a nice dinner for two can easily cost you over USD $200, the pay does seem incredibly low. But rest assured that you will not starve, nor will you be unable to partake in any diversions – you will not be bored due to lack of funds; if you are bored in Ethiopia it is your own doing! Especially if you are a coffee hound, you can avail yourself of coffee tours and coffee ceremonies – that’s right, coffee ceremonies – and teachers are often invited to participate.

Many schools provide accommodation as part of their package and will provide you with documentation to assist you in obtaining your work visa, a process that will have to be completed before you travel to Ethiopia to take up your position. Once in the country, you will need a residence visa, which your employer will assist you with.

Due to the demographics of Ethiopia, many of the TEFL and ESL jobs are to be found outside of Addis Ababa, in the rural areas. Close to 90% of the population lives outside the cities and, consequently, the jobs are located there. As far as TEFL certification goes, it is likely that the subject will never come up, especially if you are teaching outside the cities. If you are in an urban school, it may be a requirement depending on the school to which you are applying. At any rate, it is safe to say that the better your qualifications, the better your chances of landing a job.

A typical working week will run from 15 to 25 classroom hours, plus preparation time. The rule of thumb for preparation is one to one, that is, one hour of preparation for every hour of class time. You can expect the majority of your students to be children, although some private language schools do offer classes for adults and business professionals – and as one would expect, most of the adult TEFL and ESL jobs are to be found in the larger centres. But should you be in a rural setting you should be prepared to teach children, where you will have all the creative control you will ever want as an ESL teacher. For the most part the curriculum will be under your control, and you can expect to be encouraged to innovate and use whatever materials you find appropriate.
