    Residential Summer School EFL Teachers
    Thames Valley Summer Schools
    Location Kent, Surrey, Warwickshire & Northamptonshire, United Kingdom
    Deadline Tuesday 01. July 2014
    Experience No preference
    Do you hold a British Council recognised ELT qualification and a Degree? Would you like to work for an established residential summer school, based at some of the UK's top independent schools and accredited by the British Council?

    For the past 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
    • Oundle School
    • Rugby School
    • Sevenoaks School

    We are now recruiting enthusiastic and motivated EFL Teachers, wishing to work in a professional environment on our British Council accredited summer courses.

    You'll get lots of support - a full briefing prior to the start of the course, 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, and access to a wide range of EFL resources.

    Most importantly, a team of EFL experts have designed a teaching syllabus to reduce your planning and preparation, so you can enjoy your free time.

    All residential staff receive free full-board accommodation.

    Thames Valley Summer Schools is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment. As part of our commitment:
    • All references will be followed up
    • Referees will be asked specifically if there is any reason why you should not be allowed to work with under 18-year olds
    • Any gaps in your employment history will need to be explained satisfactorily
    • Proof of identity and qualifications will be required and photocopies of the original certificate will be taken
    • All candidates are required to hold or undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly CRB) check and/or provide a Certificate of Good Conduct from their local police

    Please note that due to a large number of applicants we are only able to contact successful candidates. All applicants must be eligible to work in the UK as we do not sponsor work permit visa applications. Thank you for your understanding.

    All EFL Teachers must possess the following:

    - British Council recognised EFL teaching qualification, eg. Cambridge CELTA or Trinity Cert.TESOL 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

    For one of our courses we would particularly welcome applications from teachers who also speak Japanese

    Although experience is preferred (we have an average 40% staff returning each summer), we welcome applications from newly qualified teachers.

    If you are not an EU citizen, you must have a valid work permit for the UK.

    EU national preferred EU national preferred

    From £345 - £410 per week plus between £41.81 and £49.69 per week statutory holiday pay, depending on your experience/ qualifications and the type of course.

    Teachers receive:

    * holiday pay at 12.12%

    * a comprehensive pre-course paid induction

    * support from a Director of Studies, a Senior Teacher and the Director of Education

    * access to extensive EFL resources

  • If you are concerned about divulging your home address in your resume, consider using a post office box or similar forwarding address.
  • When attending a job interview, if you feel in any way uncomfortable with the situation or the person/s you are dealing with, walk away. Also consider your work location, do you feel it is safe? Would you be happy to work there late at night?
  • Always let a friend know that you are attending an interview, when and where. acquaint yourself fully with how to get to the interview and how to get back.
  • An interview should always be arranged in daylight hours.
  • If the job appears to be "too good to be true", it probably is. Fully research the employer via web forums, search engines and previous employees. Most reputable employers should be happy to put you in touch with previous/current staff.
  • As previously stated, no reputable employer will ask you for money (even for a visa, work-permit etc.). If a tefl.com advertiser does ask you for payment, refuse and contact us immediately.
  • As a TEFL.com member your resume contact details are not in the public domain. Only registered employers can view your resume (contact details removed) via our resume search engine.
