Teaching Job Vacancies

Singapore is one of the most secure and cleanest cities in the world. The city-state is a cultural mix of Western, Malay, and Chinese influences. 

Besides, expats form a significant percentage of the country's urban population. If you are searching for teaching jobs in Singapore, the good news is that teachers are paid handsomely here. 

Education is mainly imparted in the English language. Therefore, you are expected to be TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certified. 

Apart from that, you will have to get approval from the Ministry of Education (MOE) if your applying for teaching jobs at Singapore's public schools. 

Here are the top 6 FAQs related to teaching jobs in Singapore: 


 How to become a teacher in Singapore? 

Firstly, you need to check your eligibility. You should be a graduate or postgraduate in education for being a teacher in Singapore. 

The National Institute of Education (NIE) trains the teachers according to the curriculum followed across the country. 

If you are a foreigner, your employer will help you get a work permit and employment pass provided that you are offered a job. 

Whether you are located in Singapore or not, the best way to hunt for teaching jobs is online. 

While teachers are recruited all year round, the best time to get hired is from January to mid-November - a typical school year. 


 What are the requirements for a teaching job in Singapore? 

You need a bachelor's degree to secure a teaching job in Singapore. Apart from that, you should also have TEFL certification for ESL positions (English as a second language). 

It's important to note that the degree should be in your core subject or education. The institute, college, or school you are applying for may require successful teaching experience as well. 

Other qualification requirements for teaching jobs may include: 

  • Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) 
  • Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) 

That said, if you're applying for leadership roles, you will need a PhD., M.Ed., or NPQH from a recognized institution. 


 How much do teachers in Singapore earn? 

According to a recent survey, a teaching job in Singapore can earn you a salary of S$57,919 per annum in primary schools. 

On the other hand, secondary school teachers in Singapore earn an average yearly salary of S$68,954. The amount also includes bonuses and CPF (Central Provident Fund). 

Singapore is one of the few countries where teachers are well paid, alongside Finland and France. However, you should know that a tutor is different from a teacher. 

The former charges by the hour (anywhere between S$25 - S$50) and is usually self-employed. Also, tutors don't receive bonuses and CPF. 

You can find hundreds of relevant teaching jobs online by starting your job search and sort them by experience and location. 


 Which are the most in-demand skills for a teaching job in Singapore? 

The most popular skills include curriculum planning, childhood education, and the English language. 

Skills in English language and curriculum planning pay higher than average, while skills in childhood education generally pay less than the average. 

The following are the average salaries (per annum) according to the aforenamed skills: 

  • English language: S$83,500 
  • Curriculum planning: S$57,822 
  • Childhood education: S$42,700 

You may want to study these search tips before you begin the hunt for teaching jobs in Singapore. 


 How do I apply for a visa for a teaching job in Singapore? 

You must have a job before you relocate to Singapore, after which your employer is responsible for the entire visa application process. 

All you have to do is share the documents with the school or university. You are required to submit a copy of your: 

  • TEFL certification 
  • Passport 
  • Degree certificate(s) 
  • Criminal background check 
  • Headshot 
  • Letter of recommendation 

You can travel to Singapore once your visa is approved. In the first two weeks, you will undergo a medical test, the results of which will have to be shared with your school. 

Don't forget to register with the Ministry of Manpower (MOM). The work permit for teaching jobs are provided to you within a few days and is valid for two years. 


 Do you have to be a native speaker? 

The answer is no. Candidates of all nationalities are free to apply for teaching jobs in Singapore. 

However, depending on the institute, native speakers may be given preference. 

Singapore has become an international business centre. It's the epitome of human perseverance for a country that was once poverty-stricken after the British left it. 

The authorities compensated for the lack of natural resources by investing in human capital. Deliberate policy choices by the government of Singapore also helped shape a solid education system. 

As a result, the city-state has attracted high-quality teachers from around the world.
