      GOING BACK TO THE UK
    "I've been teaching outside Britain for over 11 years now and am really keen to get a well-paid permanent job teaching EFL back in England. Problem is, how do I go about it? Even though I am diploma qualified and have lots of varied experience the problem always arises that employers always want to interview. Trouble is that 1. I can't just take time off and fly thousands of miles for a job I might not get anyway and 2. I can' risk giving up my job and going back to the UK on a job hunt! Any suggestions? "

    Director of Studies - BC Accredited College in Harrow, London
    Katherine and King's College of London
    Location Harrow, London, United Kingdom
    Deadline --
    Experience 2 years
    Details
    Reporting to: Executive Director

    Although we are looking for a permanent member of staff, we can also consider short-term summer school DOS applications.

    The Director of Studies will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the college’s academic programme. In addition to competent administrative and organisational skills, you should also possess the ability to communicate clearly with your team and be prepared to tackle issues with a hands-on approach.

    The role also requires an element of creativity and innovative thinking. Together with English language classes, our summer school courses offer creative workshops focussing on: art and design, music, photography, digital audio and video production, animation and web design. Most of our English teachers have been recruited because they are passionate about, and have backgrounds in, one or more of these creative subjects. And as the manager of a creative team, you should too.

    As an experienced professional you should be prepared to offer teaching and learning support to all the teachers on your team by way of CDP sessions, observations and workshops, all of which enable you to share your knowledge and experience with others. The successful applicant should be DELTA qualified or equivalent in order to provide new and experienced teaching staff with valuable feedback. As we are a small college offering a range of courses in addition to English, the ideal candidate would be willing to engage in other areas of academic management outside of English language teaching when necessary.

    KKCL prides itself on being customer focussed, team focussed, and process focussed. As Director of Studies you will be required to help maintain great customer/school relationships, support and nurture your academic team, and finally, offer ideas which enable the company to better its current processes if you see potential for improvement.

    The ideal candidate must have the following:
    - Proven organisational management and team leading experience
    - Commitment to the highest standards of teaching within our classes and highest standards of customer service within the school
    - A strategic thinker and planner
    - A passionate educator who believes in innovative approaches and encourages creativity
    - A dedicated leader with the power to motivate and help others grow
    - Great communicator with ability to build strong internal and external relationships
    - Accessible to a team within a challenging environment
    - Highly organised, energetic and resourceful, working to deadlines whilst remaining flexible at all times
    - Ability to handle difficult situations with ease and remain calm under pressure
    - Computer literacy essential and overseas experience an advantage

    Qualifications
    Evidence of achievement at least to master degree standard or its equivalent in terms of alternative qualifications and successful working experience.

    2 years of management experience (ADOS/DOS)
    5 years of teaching experience

    Delta or equivalent is needed for the position of DoS

    Applicants must have a Valid UK Work Permit


    EU national preferred EU national preferred

    Compensation
    Competitive, depending on experience.

    Please send a cover letter and CV.
    Due to the volume of applications, only short-listed applicants will be contacted.

    Please Note: We will require at least two references which will be followed up by our HR team. Candidates will need to undergo the necessary DBS police checks and any gaps in work history will need to be explained.

    When applying for any position, applicants are reminded of the following:
  • Most reputable employers do not request any payment in advance of being offered a post. We suggest you do not send any payment.
  • We suggest you do not send original certificates or diplomas as part of an application.
  • Applicants are reminded that prior to accepting employment, it is essential to fully research the employer and request references where appropriate.

    There are several commonsense factors you should consider when applying for a post, attending an interview or working abroad.
  • Do not provide any banking or credit card information when applying for a job.
  • 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. If an employer wishes to view your contact details they are required to use a "ResumeView". Our system logs all resumes viewed by the employer.

  • Register with your embassy as soon as you arrive in the host country.

  • Your safety is paramount. If you feel uneasy with any part of the application procedure or interview, walk away!

  • Get travel insurance and check that the cover is appropriate.
  • Check what vaccinations you need at least 6 weeks before you go and consider whether you need to take extra health precautions
