Details of Position
We are looking for a dedicated, energetic English teacher with a passion for motivating, nurturing and guiding our younger learners. The successful candidates will enjoy working closely with like-minded colleagues, who seek and appreciate the buzz that comes from creating dynamic, inclusive and effective lessons and contributing to the student-centred ethos of our business. You will be able to draw upon previous experience to anticipate workload, carry out effective marking and plan ahead.
Over 90% of our young learners come back each year as they love the atmosphere, lessons and activities and their parents appreciate the results! However, we also recognise the need to continue developing and experimenting and thus warmly welcome new initiatives to help us shape our successful formula going forwards. A key part of your role will be to propose and deliver extra-curricular activities to ensure this complete wraparound package of language and culture for our children.
The Stamford School is a Cambridge Assessment English centre operating in two nearby market towns. Our core business is in-house General English and Cambridge English exam courses. Classes in both schools span many levels from complete beginner to Advanced C2 and draw upon a wide student base of young learners, teenagers and adults.
The Stamford School's aim is to develop all our teachers' skills and knowledge and allow you to make TEFL teaching a rewarding career, not just a short term option. The DOS Emma and Assistant DOS Olivia support the team ethos of professional growth by organising weekly paid CPD sessions on all aspects of methodology and language, as well as being on hand every morning for help with lesson planning and trouble shooting. Most of our teachers stay for more than their first year due to the support and atmosphere of the school.
The position we are seeking to fill is ideal for somebody whose interests lie in teaching younger students. You will understand the importance of having a nurturing approach and will show warmth, care and sensitivity in dealing with children. Our ideal candidate will also have some knowledge of Cambridge Young Learner examinations (Starters, Movers and Flyers).
We would love to hear from you if you are keen to develop your teaching skills in these areas and if you can imagine yourself actively contributing to a school which encourages initiative and recognises hard work and loyalty. Please note that sometimes, due to timetabling restrictions, you may be asked to teach some adult classes in addition to children's courses.
