Job Summary

Elac is an established English Language School. It began in 1991 in Eastbourne, on the South East Coast of England, and initially ran a family stay course there. In 2000 Elac opened its first residential summer school, also in Eastbourne.
We now have 7 residential summer centres in Nottingham, Chalfont St. Giles (Bucks), Eastbourne, Horsham (W. Sussex), Mayfield (E. Sussex), Cardiff & Bath. We are recruiting Academic Managers, Teachers and Activity Staff for July/August 2018.

Details of Position

Elac now have 7 residential centres in Bath, Cardiff, Chalfont St. Giles (Buckinghamshire), Eastbourne, Horsham (West Sussex), Mayfield (East Sussex) & Nottingham. We also have family stay centres in Bath & Eastbourne. Summer centres start in early July 2018 but we can consider applicants who need a start later in July.
Though Elac has grown as an organisation in recent years, the company still has the virtues of a small family-run business: a personal service, a high standard of care and welfare, attention to detail and a focus on quality.
We are fully accredited by the British Council and members of English UK and Young Learners English UK.
We are recruiting Academic Managers, Activity Managers, Teachers (Residential and Non-residential) and Activity Leaders (Residential and Non-residential).
Full details of all positions available can be seen on our website, click the 'Work With Us' tab.
Or you can email our recruitment address on the site.
Each summer we provide residential and family stay courses for around 3,500 students from Italy, Spain, France, Austria, Poland, Russia, Greece, Israel, China and Japan. We also have developing links in a number of other countries, and the international aspect of our courses is important.
We are a professional, accredited school and are serious about what we do. We treat our teachers with the same level of individual care and concern as we do our students. We recognise that our teachers are a vital part of our success, not just for the summer, but on a long-term basis too.
We are looking for applicants who are committed and have a genuine interest in teaching young learners. Previous summer school experience is welcomed although not essential. For newly qualified teachers, there will be opportunities to learn and develop and support will be provided to get you launched on your TEFL career.
Teachers are required to teach for 27 contact hours per week. Residential teachers will also undertake 4 activity sessions per week (normally one evening activity and 1 full day excursion).
We believe strongly in our responsibility to promote the development of our teachers, and consequently we have an excellent programme of staff development including:
Pre-course online induction & Staff Handbook
A fully resourced syllabus with accompanying lesson plans
Regular staff meetings
A programme of lesson observation with constructive feedback
In-house Teacher Development Sessions
Please see our academic website for more information.
Activity staff are inducted so they can be involved with and organise excursions, on site activities and local visits.


We require our teachers to hold a degree plus a CELTA or Trinity Cert TESOL. We also accept a PGCE (English or Modern Languages) with experience teaching in the EFL field.
Other qualifications will be accepted if they are recognised by the British Council.
Applicants without a degree but who hold a relevant EFL teaching qualification and experience may be considered.
If you do not have any of the above qualifications please still send your CV as way of application as we may have other suitable positions in our centres.
We require a current CV with references by way of application.
Applicants must have necessary qualifications or extensive experience in teaching.
We welcome applications from newly qualified teachers.
Activity staff should hold A level qualifications and be 18 or over.
Successful applicants will be required to undergo Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Checks which have replaced CRB Checks or Disclosure Scotland Checks. Applicants currently working abroad may also have to provide a Certificate of Good Conduct from the country they are working in.

Salary and Benefits

Teacher Salaries from £325-£380 per week.
Residential & Non-Residential Positions available
Salary packages are based on the level of experience in the EFL field and loyalty to Elac Study Vacations. There are 5 salary levels and the appropriate level for each candidate will be decided by the Recruitment Director in consultation with the applicant.
Experience is based on continuous work in the EFL field on a full-time basis.
Experience specific to summer schools will be taken into consideration.
Holiday pay in lieu of any untaken holiday (12.07% of total gross salary) will be added at the end of the contract.
Residential staff will have board and accommodation included.
