Employment Opportunities


Join our Experienced and Dynamic Team

Dalat is a biblically-based, Christ-following day and boarding school located on the island of Penang off the west coast of Malaysia. Started as a school for missionary children, Dalat has grown to meet the needs of both missionary and business expatriate families in Southeast Asia as well as local Malaysian families. The school has been providing quality education since 1929. In order for the school to maintain low tuition fees, staff are offered a modest salary and benefits contract that is similar to that of missionaries. Staff answer God’s calling on their lives to cross-cultural ministry in this unique, dynamic environment.

November through March each school year Dalat seeks dynamic, enthusiastic, caring professionals who are follower of Christ for employment in the next school year.

  • Candidates must have an understanding of Christian education and have the ability to integrate Biblical principles in their teaching.
  • Candidates should possess strong communication and interpersonal skills, be adept with technology and demonstrate flexibility in working in a cross-cultural environment and be willing to be involved in the community.
  • Candidates must be willing to incorporate cooperative learning strategies and ESL-sensitive instruction.
  • Teachers are expected to have a bachelor’s degree or higher and be certified. Two or more years of experience is necessary.


Please take time to read through the School Profile and the Salary and Benefits Contract so that you better understand the school and ministry you’re applying to. Please understand that you are applying to work and live in a third world country and that preparedness for overseas ministry is an important component of this process.
