We teach a wide variety of students from around Penang and the surrounding areas, most of our students are part-time and study with us for two hours per week. This means that most classes are held at weekends and some on weekday evenings. We teach a broad range from our Very Young Learners (VYLs) from the age of 4 to Young Learners (YLs), Teens, Young Adults, Adults, and Corporate clients.
All our classrooms have speaker systems, a projector and teachers are supplied with a company laptop on which to plan their classes. Class sizes are fixed at a maximum of 12 with our VYLs, our YL classes have a maximum of 16 and all other classes have a maximum of 20 students.
We value professional development and we encourage and support teachers to improve their skills. We need a teacher who can relate well to students, and who has an active and lively teaching style. We use a range of well-known course books but teachers can draw on our data-bank for supplementary materials and have considerable freedom in planning lessons. Most of our students are part-time and study with us for two hours per week. This means that most classes are held at weekends and on some weekday evenings

Our four centres are located in Straits Quay Marina and Bayan Baru on Penang Island, and on the mainland in Butterworth (Bagan Ajam) and
Bukit Mertajam (Alma). All are close to residential and shopping areas with a wide range of affordable condos having good facilities such as a pool and gym. Commuting to all centres is quite easy and no matter where you teach you can choose to live on either Penang Island or on the mainland. Penang Island is popular with expatriates and alaysians alike and affords a wide range of recreational and outdoor activities while historical Georgetown has UNESCO World Heritage Site status. The cost of living is much lower than in many major cities in the region.
Enhance Education is a young company that is growing quickly. The senior staff all have strong educational backgrounds and considerable
experience including the Group Director, Dr. Tom Craig-Cameron, formerly Director of British Council Malaysia. We also have xperienced Lead Teachers who manage and support the teachers in each centre.
