(5/24/2014)

Following a recent scandal involving sexual attacks on children at the Jakarta International School, the Director General of Early Non-formal and Formal Education from the Ministry of Education and Culture, Lidya Freyani Hawadi, warns that foreign tourists cannot work as teachers in Indonesia.

“Foreign tourists can only stay for three months, they can’t become teachers or educators at any school or any course,” said Lidya quoted by Republika.co.id in a press conference in Jakarta on Friday, May 23, 2014.

The Director General’s comments could have far reaching effect on many language courses and volunteer teacher programs operated by foundations in Bali.

According to Lydia, people teaching in Indonesia must be registered with the Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration (Kemenakertrans) and the Ministry of Education and Culture (Kemdikbud). Rules set out by Kemenakertrans also stipulate that teachers in Indonesia must have a command of the Indonesian language. Moreover, the subjects taught by foreigners must match their educational backgrounds.

“For example, someone who has graduated as a kindergarten teacher cannot teach grade school,” she continued.

These stipulations are in conformance with Regulations of the Ministry of Education Number 31 of 2014 on Cooperation between Operators of Foreign Educational Institutions and the Indonesian Counterparts.

Lydia went on to explain that educators coming from overseas must have, among others, certificates of good health and prove that they are not involved in missionary work.

“For foreign teachers in international schools the maximum percentage among all teachers is 70% and for those working in non-teaching position the maximum amount of foreigners to be employed is 20%,” she added.
