Seychelles in an archipelago located off the east coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean. English is one of the official languages of the island. However Seychellois Creole remains the mother tongue. All school children will study English in school. English teachers seeking work in Seychelles will probably have the best luck on the main island of Mahe.

The International School in Mahe does hire qualified foreign teachers.

    I would love the opportunity to teach English in Seychelles – I am a second year BA English Literature student in the University of Glamorgan. I am also taking the TESOL modules as part of my degree. I am looking for unpaid work for teaching English as I would like it to count towards my Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award and thus, I am applying as a volunteer. The only thing I am hoping to get is help towards the costs of my accommodation and travel expenses. The TESOL course I am taking entails a lot of information including Grammar, Lexis and Phonology; we were told our university is the only university that offers a TESOL course in the UK and the lecturers there argue we are miles ahead other students who are looking to teach English to speakers of other languages. Therefore, I hope, if successful, to be of great help to you as well. Thank you very much, Sharmaine.

    I am a Nigerian graduate of English language from the premier university in Nigeria. I have taught in notable schools (of international standard) in Nigeria and had once extended my service to a school in Madagascar for about three years. I will be happy to teach in Sychelles.
