Firsthand Look Into Teaching During a Pandemic

With Vietnam having one of the most favorable Covid responses in the world, we have had the wonderful opportunity to continue our careers and teach our students.

Onset of COVID-19

The first two cases of COVID-19 in Vietnam were confirmed on 23rd January. By this time Vietnam had already begun its response, activating the “Emergency Epidemic Prevention Centre”, creating advice hotlines and launching 40 mobile Emergency Response Teams.

Closure of Schools

After seven confirmed cases in total, Vietnam ordered the closure of schools and language centres on the 3rd of February.

APAX responded swiftly; to retain our large talent pool of experienced teachers we committed to continuing to pay our staff in full, and moved to an online platform of teaching.

In order to provide the service that parents paid for, and ensure that the teaching outcomes for our students were not impacted, these online lessons were provided free-of-charge, with the commitment that the content was to be revisited when in-person teaching resumed.

Like the rest of the world, APAX did not expect the effects of COVID-19 to be long term.


Schools and language centres did not reopen until the 4th of May. As a result of generating zero income for three months and ensuring that all staff continued to be paid in full, salary payments were now had to be paid out in staggered installments.

Undeniably, this caused stress and worry amongst our teaching community, not helped by being so far from home during a global pandemic. This hardship was compounded by the fact that Vietnam closed its borders to all international flights from 19th March, meaning APAX could not fill vacancies from abroad.

However, APAX continued to provide an income for all our staff in Vietnam, in the wake of unprecedented circumstances.

Moving Forward

Since the resumption of in-class teaching in May, APAX has been working hard to consolidate its position. While some APAX centres have closed and reopened again due to localised outbreaks, on the whole our operations have returned to normal.

To improve communication and reassure our staff, a payment timeline has been created to allow for better financial planning regarding salary payments. A complete resumption of normal operations is forecast before the end of the year.
