We offer a varied weekly timetable, with a mix of both adults and young learner groups.
We are a friendly, professional school with an excellent local reputation and a high student return rate. We offer quality language teaching to students of all ages and levels; from very young learners to adults, beginners to proficiency.

-The successful candidate will be required to teach a mix ages and levels, group classes and 1:1 students.
-Although most of the courses we run are at our school premises, we also run some courses at local state schools and businesses off site.
-We offer lessons to all ages, however we have a very high number of young learners coming to school, so we are looking for a teacher who is keen and enthusiastic about working with kids and teens.
-The teaching week runs from Monday to Friday.
We offer regular support throughout the teaching year through regular staff meetings and class observations. We organise workshops for our teachers covering areas such as teaching young learners, motivating teenagers and preparing students for exams. Our DoS and teaching colleagues are on hand for advice, support and help in developing teaching ideas during the week. At present there are five teachers working at our school.
Our school is in Torremaggiore (population 18 000), which is a friendly and welcoming market town in the far north of Puglia. This area offers beautiful scenery and is only 15 minutes from the Adriatic coast. Its a very traditional Italian town and just off the usual Italian tourist trail, but well connected to both the North and South of Italy. It offers plenty of scope to explore all the other fascinating areas that Italy has to offer, both locally and further afield. There are frequent bus services to surrounding area and nearest city, Foggia, and (in only 20 minutes) to the nearest bus and train station with main links to Rome and North/South Italy.
It is important to bear in mind before application that the school is not in a big city and would therefore suit a teacher who enjoys what life has to offer in a smaller Italian town.
