Below was posted on FB by Ken Wilson ( today:


(I don't usually advertise ELT jobs, but today I'm going to make an exception. There are vacancies for teachers in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, with the New Generation group of schools. I was lucky enough to give a talk to NG teachers in April another Kazakh city, Pavlodar, and I was really impressed by the teachers, the owners and the support staff. Anyway, here are the details:

EFL Teacher
Astana, Kazakhstan
Start date: September 1st 2015

New Generation International Educational Center is looking for EFL professionals to work in Astana, the amazing capital city of Kazakhstan. An excellent local remuneration package is offered to the right candidate, who must have CELTA or equivalent and be committed to delivering high quality lessons and focused on self-development.

School Description:
New Generation International Educational Center has been providing first-class language tuition in Kazakhstan since 2000. The company has three main divisions: language schools, bookselling and the Studies Abroad department. There are three schools, two in Pavlodar and one in Astana.

Astana became the capital of Kazakhstan in 1997. Its modern architecture is striking in its scale and futuristic design, especially in contrast to the vast steppes that surround it.

Our ideal candidate for an EFL teacher position
• has a recognized EFL qualification (TEFL/TESOL/ CELTA/DELTA)
• has a university degree
• is outgoing, enthusiastic, positive, sociable, hard-working and looking for a challenge.

Moreover, experience in teaching YL and Exam Preparation (IELTS and TOEFL) is highly preferable. A Business English qualification will be an advantage, along with an IELTS Examiner qualification.

Applications from people who do not meet all of the above criteria will be considered, although only successful applicants will be contacted. We welcome applications from native and non-native speaker teachers of English.

Salary and benefits:
- Monthly salary: from KZT 220,000 (net) depending on qualifications and experience. About USD1,200 per month.

In addition, we offer the following remuneration package:
- Visa support: the school will help with and cover the cost of a multiple one-year visa;
- Economy return air fare to Astana
- Airport transfer on arrival and departure
- Free accommodation
- Free access to email and internet facilities
- 24-hour hotline emergency assistance.

Teachers will always have a senior member of staff with whom they can discuss any aspects of their work. Also, our school will help teachers settle smoothly into living in Kazakhstan and provide ongoing assistance on all matters that may otherwise prove difficult with the language barrier.

Thanks so much for that Amanda! Everyone will see/has seen that unless they turned off notifications from this group...:)

I'll post it on the current groups' walls as well, nice one! :)

Hi, y'all! Hope everything is wonderful!
I'm still in Hong Kong, and was recently put in contact with HKEDU (, which is currently taking applicants for full-time work in primary schools. They offer a one-year contract and decent benefits, including housing and paid holiday time.
Matt, feel free to tell your other trainee groups about this.
