This is a unique opportunity for qualified teachers to work in the Himalayan country of Bhutan; a country ruled by happiness, where culture and tradition are closely guarded, Buddhist values prevail and the majestic peaks of the Himalayas are part of every landscape!
Here are some of the most important qualities we look for in our candidates:
Resourcefulness: This is an important quality for teachers in that Bhutan is much different from your home-town. You must be able to cope with the day to day living in Bhutan as well as being resourceful in your new position!
Patience: Everything comes in baby steps; just remember that it will take time to become comfortable in your new surroundings.
Independence: Our teachers are very independent in their new living and teacher positions! You will have to develop lesson plans for your students so independence is key.
Adaptability: In Bhutan everything, whether it be the altitude, cold/heat extremes, limited food options, simple accommodation, power, internet and water outages, superstition, complacency, or six day work weeks, will be new and you will have to adapt to your surroundings.
A positive attitude: Living and teaching in Bhutan is an amazing and unique experience! If you keep a positive attitude you will be sure to succeed.
A sense of humour: Be able to laugh at yourself! This will be a learning process, not all lesson plans will go “according to plan”.
Flexibility: Be able to “go with the flow”. Day to day life and teaching in Bhutan is never the same each day. Along with adaptability you must be flexible with occurrences at school or at home.
Keep these qualities in mind when applying or even during your interviews to really wow us. If you have the required recommendations but show us that you have what it takes to teach in the beautiful Kingdom of Bhutan you will be sure to succeed in the recruitment process!
