Live and teach in the Kingdom of Bhutan, a secluded and mystical country, virtually untouched by the modern world. Develop new teaching techniques, share expertise with local teachers and steep yourself in the concept and practice of Gross National Happiness, all while exploring an authentic Himalayan culture.


The Bhutan Canada Foundation is a registered non-profit organisation, recruiting teachers for the Ministry of Education in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. We are specifically looking for Elementary and Secondary Math, Science and English teachers as well as Special Education specialists to fill positions in public schools in rural Bhutan.


No other language needed as English is the language of instruction in Bhutan. Applicants must have a BEd, equivalent teaching certification, or proof of at least three years relevant teaching experience.


These year-long contracts are renewable up to five years and run from January – December. We are currently recruiting for the 2016 school year. Teachers receive a local salary and accommodation is secured prior to arrival. Please see our website or email to learn more and apply!


This is an incredible opportunity to live and work in one of the most remote and untouched nations in the world as Bhutan moves towards an exciting and innovative transformation to a more interactive, thoughtful and participatory system of education.




Travel a world away. Make a world of difference. Teach in Bhutan.
