The British Council/Foreign and Commonwealth Office English language project in the DPRK aims to deliver quality programmes in teacher/trainer training and to develop the curriculum and related materials as well as assessment systems at leading institutions in Pyongyang. This high-profile project has been running since 2000, and we are now seeking three experienced English language teaching professionals to fill the above posts, which will be based at these institutions.
Alas, only UK passport holders can be considered for the posts (and you have until 20 September to send in those applications!). Now we’re not totally sure if it’s British Council’s standard policy of hiring only UK natives (ie., no Americans, Australians, New Zealanders?) but even if that weren’t the case, Americans likely won’t be welcome there anytime soon to teach English, as the above propaganda poster shows, which depicts President Bush getting crushed by his own missiles.
