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
