Details of Position
Each summer we welcome around 400 tutors from across the world, to teach on around 300 camps. We believe that the cultural exchange that is experienced during this program is undoubtedly one of the highlights.
Enhance your CV by learning how to teach through games, sports, drama & songs all taught at our orientation. It is also a great summer experience where you will meet people from around the world, enjoy all that Italy has to offer, and make amazing memories for you & the children you meet.
After a careful selection process and a distance-learning course, trainee tutors are given a five-day orientation course in Italy before being assigned to tutor Italian children in a camp. This course prepares trainee tutors for their position by providing them with activities, songs, and games to teach the English language.
Through their experience with A.C.L.E., tutors learn to develop their leadership skills, use voice as an instrument of communication for generating interest and meaning, lower the learners' inhibitions and fears about learning a second language. They create games, songs, and activities around language functions, vocabulary, and grammatical structures, and use drama techniques to create simple scripts and theatrical performances that involve learners.
Once trainee tutors have completed orientation they attend a minimum of three weeks in camps across Italy from the Alps to Sicily, putting their training into practice, teaching children and having the time of their lives.
Accommodation, food and transport during and between camps is provided and trainee tutors also receive a paid study grant which is based on the number of weeks spent teaching. The study grant starts at 520 euros for your first 3 weeks in camp.
