Latest on Taiwan’s English programme

In a bid to boost Taiwan’s English Language Teaching Assistant programme, the country is currently looking to fill vacancies in 345 of its public schools, according to Radio Taiwan International. The recruitment drive to hire more English teachers is part of Taiwan’s Bilingual Nation 2030 policy in a bid to increase its competitiveness on the world stage.

In a sign that perhaps recruitment is going slowly, the posts are for the 2022/2023 school year, which is fast approaching. One reason, perhaps, is that renumeration is NT$400 (approx £11) an hour. What are they looking for in return? First and foremost is that teachers must be native speakers.
