Details of Position

AEYL operates an innovative summer programme for young learners aged 9-17 in Sherborne, Dorset. We are family-owned and managed with only one centre to which we give our full attention. In our 2014 British Council inspection we were awarded 9 areas of strength including Staff Management, Quality Assurance, Academic Management, Learning Resources, Care of students, Care of under 18s, Premises and Facilities, Accommodation and Leisure Opportunities. This makes us one of the top-ranked private language schools in the UK. Indeed, our aim is to provide the highest quality language training through stimulating lessons and interesting activities in a safe and hospitable atmosphere of acceptance and respect of all individuals. We have an average of at least one staff member to 3 students on campus to ensure safety and quality.

We require you to teach 24 hours of group lessons per week in small classes of average 8 students, to teach up to 2 individual lessons per week subject to demand, to eat lunch with your class, and to cover break times on a rota basis. Teaching takes place from Monday to Friday, and your weekends will be free other than the first Sunday of the course, when you will help welcome the new students in the afternoon. We have a dedicated team of activity organisers who take care of activities, excursions, airport pick-ups and pastoral care in the boarding houses, leaving you free to focus on preparing and delivering excellent lessons and to attend meetings and CPD sessions. We are proud of our staff retention with over 50% of our staff returning each year. We believe this speaks for itself.

We are looking for an inspiring, well-organised TEFLQ teacher to support the Director of Studies in the organisation, administration and implementation of the academic programme. The role will include supervising and supporting a team of teachers, observing lessons, assisting with CPD sessions, overseeing breaks and lunchtimes, and welcoming and assessing new students on some Sundays. You will be available to teach cover lessons or a part timetable as required. This is an exciting opportunity to join a friendly, experienced team.
