Job Summary

British School Group (est. 1952), requires a teacher for its schools in the Basilicata region of Italy. Please note that an interest in and the ability to teach 5-11 year olds is essential.

Details of Position

Our main school is based in Melfi, with two smaller branches in Lavello and Venosa. Melfi is a tranquil market town (pop. 18,000) with its own castle and lies at the foot of an extinct volcano. The town has access to a reasonable range of facilities and services e.g. a swimming pool, a hospital, a train station, internet by fibre-optic cable, restaurants, a mall, small supermarkets, stores, and so on. Public transport in the form of buses and trains to surrounding towns and bigger cities is available although schedules tend to be limited (once or twice a day to the big cities). The bus from Melfi to Rome, for example, is twice daily and takes approx. 4.5 hours. Teachers can expect to teach at all three schools which are close to each other and for which transportation will be provided. Teachers typically work a Monday to Saturday schedule of 25 real hours, with overtime paid if more hours are worked. The teachers room is stocked with a modest collection of materials to which we are constantly adding. Coffee and tea-making facilities are available. Classrooms are equipped with portable audio players, some classrooms have projectors and interactive whiteboards. There is a photocopier for teachers use. Nearby the school, there are various options for getting a hot lunch. It would be fair to say that, given our location and work schedule, a position with us is unlikely to be suitable for party-animals, adventure-seekers, or backpackers. We would be most interested to hear from serious-minded teachers who enjoy or do not mind country-life and who are committed to providing a high quality service to students.
If interested, please send your CV (preferably with photo), cover letter, and 2 references or contact details for your referees. Interviews will take place by skype.


Native English speakers. Non-natives at level C2 / CPE / IELTS 9 (proof of level required).
PGCE, B.Ed, or CELTYL. CELTA teachers with experience of and a strong interest in teaching Young Learners will also be considered.
EU citizens. Non-EU citizens with valid working papers for Italy.

Salary and Benefits

1,200 Euro net per month.
All national holidays plus Christmas, Easter, and Summer break.
1 or 2 year contracts available.
We will find accommodation for you if you wish. Furnished, single accommodation within walking distance from the school can be found for 250-300 Euro per month.
Our friendly staff are more than happy to assist you with settling in and finding your feet.
