Tanzania Job Listings

Despite being one of the world’s poorest countries, Tanzania is home to some of the most remarkable natural sites, a rich and diverse culture and friendly, hospitable people.From safaris in the Serengeti, to the tropical island of Zanzibar with its idyllic beaches and coral reefs, the country is a nature lover’s paradise.More adventurous visitors may also enjoy climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak and one of the seven wonders of the world.There are many opportunities for finding TEFL jobs in Tanzania, particularly volunteer positions.

Dar es Salaam is the capital of Tanzania, offering a vibrant blend of culture and tradition.It is also one of the most popular destinations for EFL teachers and is where a large proportion of TEFL jobs in Tanzania can be found. The city originally grew from a fishing village and provides the opportunity to view a unique open-air museum built in the style of a traditional village and hosting frequent tribal dance displays.

Hospitality is important to the Tanzanian people, who are pleased to welcome visitors and share their food and culture.Tanzanian cuisine is generally simple and cheap, with malnutrition and food shortage a serious issue throughout the country.Popular staples include rice or ugali, a type of maize porridge, which may be served with grilled meat or fish.ESL teachers taking TEFL jobs in Tanzania have the unique opportunity to make a difference to people who have very little in terms of material possessions, but a strong desire to learn and a positive outlook on life.

With around 50% of the population under the age of 15, education is of massive importance in the country and opportunities for TEFL jobs in Tanzania are plentiful.English is one of the official languages of the country and is seen as a vital part of the education system, so ESL teachers with TEFL qualifications and university degrees are in high demand in both public and private schools.

Although plenty of opportunities are available, ESL teaching positions are generally volunteer posts and many educators may find positions through volunteer EFL organisations.These offer placements in schools, along with very basic accommodation and insurance.These ESL positions do occasionally provide some compensation to cover living expenses and travel,however, in some cases, teachers may have to pay a fee for the opportunity to take up one of these placements.ESL posts may last from a few weeks to a year, and could be in a city or rural location.

Working with the Tanzanian Ministry of Education as an ESL volunteer in public schools is common for the majority of EFL/ESL teachers.However, there are now TEFL jobs in Tanzania in private schools, which are designed to provide smaller class sizes and advanced material to the few who can afford it.These schools may offer a basic wage to ESL teachers with a TEFL qualification and university degree.Due to limited resources in schools in general, ESL teachers may also be asked to teach other subjects such as sports or art classes and may assist with extracurricular activities in addition to their four to five hours of teaching per day.

The average wage for ESL teachers in Tanzania is around 30,000 to 90,000 Tanzanian shillings per month, or the equivalent of £9–£30.So although the cost of living is low, it is worth bearing in mind that accepting a TEFL job in Tanzania is not likely to make you rich and is more about the opportunity to experience a unique culture, make a difference to the lives of those you teach and gain experience as an ESL teacher.
