Details of Position


ABC School of English is looking for a TEFL qualified teacher to join our team.

The position is to teach English as a foreign language using the Callan Method (a direct method, based on speaking). The Method was established in the 1960s and is very popular among students. It is a fun, fast way to teach. Full training provided. Full and part time positions available.

Location: Covent Garden, London

Applicants must be prepared to undergo an in-house training course. The training will last for three to five days, with paid employment starting immediately after, for successful applicants.

The training will involve watching experienced Callan Method teachers and teaching practice (among fellow trainees, not with actual students). Candidates must attend the full training course. We are looking to train now, with immediate start after successful training.

Acceptance on the training course does NOT guarantee a job at the end.

Paid employment for successful trainees will commence immediately after training.

All trainees, begin teaching part time, with ongoing training and gradually build to full time, if applicable, and if hours available. Full time is 7, 50 minute periods per day, Monday to Friday. Part time is every day but a reduced number of hours, usually 4 or 5.

Please send covering letter and full CV including two referees. At least one reference will be acquired prior to employment.

Teachers already trained to teach with the Callan Method very welcome.

Rate per hour: £12

If you would like to join our very warm and friendly team, please send a covering letter and CV.

Please note:
references will be followed up
all gaps in CVs must be explained satisfactorily
proof of identity and (where applicable) qualifications will be required
reference requests will ask specifically whether there is any reason that they should not be engaged in situations where they have responsibility for, or substantial access to, persons under 18
suitability checks will be required prior to confirmation of appointment

We will contact you if we would like you to attend an interview. If you do not hear from us within a week of submitting your application, please assume you have not been successful on this occasion.


The applicant MUST:

Have English at first language level (native level English speaker)
Hold a recognised TEFL qualification (including at least 6 hours of observed teaching practice)
Hold a degree
Have excellent standard pronunciation
Be smartly turned out
Have good communication abilities
Have a desire to tackle challenges with flexibility and imagination
Be based in London

There may be occasional work with students under 18 and as such an enhanced DBS check is required. If you do not currently have this, we will require you to undergo this check. The current cost is £61.00, which will be payable by you. All job offers are subject to a clear DBS disclosure.

Salary and Benefits

Salary £12.00 per teaching hour (please note: the Callan Method requires virtually no preparation and no lesson planning).
