Details of Position

Concord College requires EFL teaching staff for residential summer courses for students aged 10-17 years. Courses (including staff induction) run from 29th June to 27th July, and 28th July to 20th August 2017. The college is situated in a beautiful rural location in close proximity to Shrewsbury and the Shropshire hills. There are excellent sports and leisure facilities on campus including two large sports halls, squash courts, aerobics and weight training room, climbing wall, running track, indoor heated swimming pool, outdoor sports pitches and courts and a modern high ropes adventure course.
Almost all summer course teachers are residential, and some undertake additional paid house parenting duties. Accommodation, full board and laundry service are provided.
Teachers are supported by an experienced academic management team and benefit from regular in-service training workshops. All classrooms have interactive whiteboards and PCs with internet access, and a comprehensive library of up-to-date teaching resources and equipment is available. WiFi is enabled throughout the campus.
We only employ teachers with a native-speaking level of English. Applicants must have the right to work in the UK as the college does not apply for work permits, visas or offer sponsorship to those applying from outside Europe.
All successful applicants will be asked to undergo Child Protection screening which includes checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (“DBS”). Prior to an appointment being confirmed, completed DBS checks and/or overseas police check documents which are satisfactory to the College must be provided. Original forms of identity documents, in accordance with DBS requirements, must be brought to interview by applicants. Concord College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.

PGCE qualified teachers should have an English or Modern Foreign Languages teaching background or TEFL qualification or recent experience. Diploma qualified teachers may be considered for a more senior position.
