Details of Position
Job Description: Language in Action Ltd is an exciting language provider with an innovative approach to language learning. Our courses offer all students an opportunity to use newly learnt English language skills in real life English situations, as well as gain Trinity GESE certification. We bring the English language classroom to life and the classroom to the English Language.
We seek three experienced, professional, energetic and dedicated residential Directors of Studies to join our team. This role will be centre-based at one of our three summer school centres across London, from late June to mid-August 2017. We are passionate about improving the way English language is taught and learnt and are looking for like-minded individuals to lead the Academic teams at our centres. The successful candidate would work closely with the Academic Manager to prepare for the summer school sessions in 2017, focusing on teacher training, implementation of our exclusive course materials that complement our communicative language approach, and dedicated academic support to all teaching staff and students. The Director of Studies will also be responsible for all academic aspects of the centre including managing the teaching team, organising placement tests, streaming of classes, teaching when necessary, and preparing the centre for Trinity examinations.
The purpose of the Directors of Studies and teachers at the centres is to ensure that they produce a language learning experience that meets the expectations of the participants and clients. The Director of Studies will work closely, not only with the teaching staff, but with the Centre Manager, Activity Coordinator, Welfare Officer, Group Leaders and Activity staff at the centre to produce the best possible course for our students. An understanding of the occasionally conflicting needs of both student-facing “sides” of a centre (teaching and activities) is essential.
