Teaching Jobs For Education Majors & Certified Teachers


qualified teachers

Korea’s lucrative English teaching industry requires a steady influx of qualified teachers who possess education majors or valid teaching licenses. Candidates with teaching credentials will have a number of opportunities to choose from.

  1. Private Schools:  Gone2Korea works with many high end private schools that only hire qualified teachers.
  2. Public Schools:  There are hundreds of new public school positions at the beginning of each semester.
  3. International Schools:  I-school opportunities are limited and hard to land (many require in-person interviews) but we do have positions available in this segment of the job market. 


Typical salaries for education majors & certified teachers

Qualified teachers can expect to make somewhere between 2.3 – 2.7 million won/month in the private school job market. Salaries vary based on a number of factors which include: your field of study, amount of full-time teaching experience, the location of the school and related duties and obligations. Market conditions can also affect salaries. Similarly, you can expect to earn 2.1 – 2.6 million won/month as a public school teacher.


University & college teaching opportunities

Unfortunately we rarely have college and university teaching opportunities available. These types of jobs are highly competitive, quite limited and in many cases these institutions use in-house recruiters that require face-to-face interviews. Generally speaking, candidates who are keen on securing college or university teaching roles usually need to network with people in Korea.
