Abstract: 在國際化趨勢中,台灣政府推動英語教學,來提升國人成為 「終身學習者」。為了達成上述目標,台灣政府允許公立與私立學校聘用以英文為母語的外籍教師,尤其在私人的學前教育機構與補習班等,經常可看到這些外籍教師。由於家長對於子女提前接受英語教育的期望,造成市場的需求,導致政府英語教學政策和民間需求,存在著相當的落差,導致許多私立學前教育機構為了維繫市場競爭力,規避政府的法規,聘請英語非母語的外籍教師任教。本論文旨在探討為何許多來台外籍人士,無論本身是否具有合格師資與英語母語條件,在台灣冒著被驅逐出境的風險,以學前教育工作為首選,從事合法及非法打工,而非選擇其他的工作機會?本研究以英語外籍教師為主要對象,採用質性研究法,運用「計畫行為理論」作為研究架構,先透過12個先導性調查,進行初步資料分析,再經由10次深度訪談,以及80份問卷調查,了解外籍教師的看法。本研究根據計畫行為理論中的變項,包含:態度、主觀規範,以及認知行為控制等項目,分析在台外籍人士何以選擇到學前教育機構,任教英語的行為動機,及其背後原因。本研究發現,學前教育備受來台外籍人士歡迎的原因,包括:台灣學前教育階段英語教師市場需求大,教學資格門檻不夠嚴格、入行容易,薪資待遇佳,尤其是學前教育階段特殊的教學方式,能夠提供較具彈性的上班時間與生活方式,都是造成學前教育機構吸引來台外籍教師任教的原因。研究進一步發現,台灣的教育政策至今仍缺乏對於學前教育機構外籍英語教師聘用等方面,有效的管理與輔導。本論文最後建議,台灣公部門必須對於所有相關機構與個人,諸如:學前教育單位、英語為母語及其他外籍教師、與學生家長等,進行明確的規範,落實學前教育英語教師的任教資格、加強本地雇主與外師之間勞資雙方工作條件的透明度、甚至落實對非法雇主的取締及違法者處分等,都是改善台灣學前教育英語學品質,保障學童受教權及外籍教師工作權的重要途徑。
