Mission and Vision

Welcome to the Taiwan Foreign English Teacher Program (TFETP)

TFETP was launched by the Ministry of Education (MOE) to recruit foreign English teachers and teaching assistants to create more opportunities for Taiwanese students to learn English in schools nationwide.

Our Mission
play_arrow To improve the English listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills of elementary and secondary students in Taiwan.
play_arrow To develop innovative English curriculum and effective teaching methods through collaboration between foreign English teachers, foreign English teaching assistants, and Taiwanese teachers.
play_arrow To enhance the multicultural competence of foreign English teachers, foreign English teaching assistants, and local residents.

Prior to TFETP, the MOE established the Foreign English Teachers Program (FET Program) in 2004 to assist local governments in recruiting foreign English teachers for public elementary and secondary schools. The FET Program was expanded into the TFETP in 2021 to recruit more teaching talent in order to enhance the English skills of Taiwanese students.

TFETP consists of the FET Program, the North Center Project and the South Center Project. The newly added North Center and South Center not only assist in the recruitment and professional development for the foreign English teachers and teaching assistants, but also supervise them after they are assigned to public elementary and secondary schools in Taiwan. The North Center is responsible for Hsinchu City, Hsinchu County, Keelung City, Kinmen County, Lienchiang County (Matsu), Miaoli County, New Taipei City, Penghu County, Taipei City, Taoyuan City, and Yilan County. The South Center is responsible for Changhua County, Chiayi City, Chiayi County, Hualien County, Kaohsiung City, Nantou County, Pingtung County, Taichung City, Tainan City, Taitung County, and Yunlin County.

TFETP Structure

The three teams collaborate with one another to ensure the successful experience of incoming teachers and reach the goal of improving the overall English ability of Taiwanese students. By creating an immersive English learning environment, TFETP strives to promote cultural exchange and cultivate global awareness in Taiwanese society.
