GOE Public School Program
In addition to the biannual EPIK Program GoldKey is also an accredited agency for the GOE Program. GOE (Gyeongnam Office of Education) hires Conversational English Teachers through the EPIK Program every February and August but they do have a number of posts that require new teachers arrive at schools through the year between March and November.
The GOE contracts, benefits & employment conditions are identical to those enjoyed as an EPIK candidate in the province.
As the time period between a GOE interview and flying to Korea is typically 2-3 weeks it is essential that you have the full set of Application Documents ready to be submitted to GoldKey in by courier to secure your contract and work visa as soon as you have successfully passed the official Skype Interview.
Gyeongnam Province lies immediately to the west of Busan Metro
Please submit the following 6 Initial Application Documents to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will go through them with you for a final check on Skype before submitting them to GOE to request an interview opportunity for you.
(please use Microsoft Word to fill the form)
Fill in the GOE Application Form, save it as a Microsoft Word document and submit it as an attached file to email@example.com.
We will assist you to proof the document before final submission so do not delay submission unnecessarily if you are unsure about some of the questions.
The GOE Program requires at least 2 Reference Letters that conform to their letter format.
Please note the GOE letter format is different from the EPIK Reference Letter so you cannot repurpose those without them being edited by your Referee.

The GOE Program requires Proof of English Schooling Letters from South African and Quebecois applicants that conform to the letter format. Please download, study and utilise the letter guide as described. These letters should be hand signed by the school. then emailed to you so that you can forward the email to GoldKey.

Submit a color scan of your passport by email. Please check that your passport is valid for at least 12 months after the end of your intended contract. If not please apply for a new passport and submit a scan of the Home Affairs receipt for your new application along with the scan of your current passport. If you do not have a passport then a scan of your National ID can be used as a stand-in.
You need to make a short 2 minute Self Introductory Video that will grab the attention of the GOE selectors. This will be their first look at you and will largely determine if they schedule a formal interview for you. You can load your video on to YouTube as an Unlisted Video (do not set the video visibility to Private) Alternatively you can submit it directly as an attached MP4 file using WhatsApp (+27-76-411-5388)
