In most Zimbabwean schools, the indigenous languages of Shona and Ndebele are taught in the first four years of schooling as the languages of instruction.  From then on, English is used as the language of communication and instruction in the classroom. Before Zimbabwe became independent from Britain in 1980, the schools were predominantly mission or church schools, and the African people had Iittle to say about their education.  In fact, these schools were not theirs.   In one of bis working papers presented at the University of Zimbabwe (1982), Dr. Chirenje commented that mission or church schools belonged to the churches and the government which, after all, had Iiterally built the building and designed the program. They continued to import the school staff who spoke “English only” from Europe.   In this sense, English enjoyed an imposed higher status.   When independence in 1980 brought majority rule to Zimbabwe, as had happened in many African countries before, there was no indigenous language which could be used as the sole national tongue.


Most international schools in Zimbabwe offer teachers a generous package($52,000) that will afford them a great quality of life and excellent professional development opportunities. Teaching overseas in Zimbabwe can be an excellent strategic move to develop your international teaching career. You will no doubt find life in Zimbabwe very different to life in your home country. This is something we encourage you to embrace! In our experience, teachers who really get to know Zimbabwe, explore different parts of the country and try to learn the language, get the most out of teaching in Zimbabwe. With improved communications including Skype and social media, there has never been an easier time to start a new adventure and live in Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwean teachers earn around US $400 per month, which ranks them among the lowest paid civil servants in the country.

DESPITE being rated highly across the region for their contribution to the country’s high literacy rate, Zimbabwean teachers in government institutions are still among the lowest paid in the region.
