The information on this page pertains to candidates with education majors and valid teaching licenses or PGCE’s.

Qualified teachers with education majors or valid teaching licenses will have a number of options to select from within Korea’s lucrative job market. Gone2Korea has lots of job vacancies annually at recognized schools that are specifically interested in employing qualified teachers. Most of these positions are at high end private schools; however, we do have opportunities available at international schools once in a while. We also have access to hundreds of public school positions each semester.

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 job market. Salaries will vary based on a number of factors: Previous teaching experience, previous ESL teaching experience, the location of the school and related duties and obligations. Likewise, qualified teachers can expect to make between 2.0 and 2.6 million won/month in the public job market. Note: Teachers in the public school system are exempt from paying income tax during their first 2 years of employment (Canadians & Irish excluded).

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.
