Details of Position
For over 40 years, we've been helping young people from all over the world to improve their command of English. During this time, over 55,000 students have spent the summer with us and, in the process, have enjoyed a complete English experience.
We take enormous care in choosing our centres. Only prestigious boarding schools are considered and we look at everything they have to offer - from their location through to their range of facilities.
• Epsom College
• St. John’s School, Leatherhead
• Rugby School
• Sevenoaks School
We are now recruiting suitably qualified and motivated EFL teachers wishing to work in a professional environment on our British Council accredited summer courses. It is very important that our students are happy and well-looked after in all areas of the programme so we are looking for EFL teachers who not only have a passion for teaching but who are happy about all aspects of the role and will fulfil their supervision, airport, recreation, excursion and welfare duties as enthusiastically and professionally as they do their academic ones.
You'll get lots of support including a full, paid induction prior to the start of the course on all aspects of your role and throughout the course you will be supported by the Course Director for airport duties, the Recreation Director/Recreation and Welfare Co-ordinator who is in charge of the recreation and excursion programme and the Housemaster or Housemistress in charge of the boarding house you are resident in.
On the academic programme you will have both a Director of Studies and a Senior Teacher who'll give you lots of hints and tips and observe you, giving both written and oral feedback, as well as access to a wide range of EFL resources.
Most importantly, a team of EFL experts have designed a teaching syllabus to help reduce your planning and preparation time.
All residential staff receive free full-board accommodation.
- British Council recognised EFL teaching qualification, e.g. Cambridge CELTA or Trinity CertTESOL or equivalent
- a University Degree
- a native speaker level of English
We welcome applicants with a PGCE in English/MFL with an ELT/TESOL subsidiary.
- applicants with specialist Young Learner qualifications
- previous residential experience, especially with children
We have an average 70% staff returning each summer. Although experience is preferred, we also welcome applications from newly qualified teachers.
If you are not an EU citizen, you must have a valid work permit for the UK.
