Details of Position

Working at LINES offers an exciting opportunity for experienced EFL teachers to work in a fast paced, intensive, academic teaching environment.
You teach for 24 hours per week: 6 hours per day over 4 days and also take students on a mid-week excursion. There are no residential or pastoral care duties to perform and you get weekends off (Friday evening - Sunday afternoon).
We expect all teachers to take personal responsibility for planning and delivering creative, engaging academic classes and work as part of the on-site team to create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere so that students have fun learning and smiling in the same language!

Teaching Hours:

12 hours of academic classes (with language and learning focused on a weekly theme), 6 hours of language workshops and 6 hours of tutorial period per week, over 4 days.
Academic Classes (Mornings): General English classes using the LINES Syllabus. You will share classes with your teaching partner, which means you plan one 1.5 hour academic lesson per day.
Maximum class size is 10.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not have a stocked resource room. Instead, to encourage your creativity and ideas, teachers bring and share among the team their own materials and resources for the duration of the summer school.
You will have access to photocopiers/printers and all classrooms have IT/projectors and some with interactive whiteboards
Workshops (Afternoons): Project-based, communicative English classes. You have individual responsibility for planning and delivering your Workshop sessions. Workshops include Film Production, Fashion Design, Popular Music, Drama as well as Exam Preparation, Creative Writing and Business English.
Academic Excursion: Once a week, you will go on an Academic Excursion. You will be responsible for planning a pre-excursion preparation lesson (part of your 6 hours of tutorials) and for managing your class group during the day.
Information for all Teachers:
Residential Duties: There are no evening or overnight residential duties. You are responsible for escorting your classes to and from the dining room for lunch Monday-Friday and to eat with students at your allocated table, (lunch and dinner) as detailed on the weekly dining hall seating plan.
Other Duties: To attend all on-site evening meetings and a weekly Professional Development session. You must also ensure you complete all administrative duties, including registers, lesson plans, weekly and end of school student reports and student certificates.
You will normally be required to attend the weekly Friday evening Stage & Screen Show.

Your time off will start on Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. If leaving the site, you must be back on site by 3 pm on Sunday afternoon, for placement testing and associated office duties.
