What to expect from us:
All new teachers are met by a representative of the school upon arrival in Badajoz and accommodation in a local hotel is arranged and paid for during the first two days of their stay. During this period, the school offers assistance in finding accommodation, opening a bank account, purchasing a Spanish mobile phone and registering with a local doctor.
The academic year starts mid-September, with new teachers arriving in Badajoz at least a week before classes commence. For new staff, there are a series of induction days in which new teachers can expect to be well-supported by the DoS and colleagues. This helps to ensure a smooth transition for new teachers in the organisation and preparation of their first classes.

Throughout the year, teachers attend weekly in-house development sessions and meetings. These are mostly led by the Director of Studies and senior teachers, although teachers are encouraged to lead a session at some time during the school year. All teachers participate in Deans Creative English School's observation programme where teachers are observed by the Director of Studies who also provides feedback and advice. In turn, all teachers are free to observe the DoS. There is an active peer observation campaign which is organised between teachers to allow new staff to develop as a result of working closely with more experienced colleagues.
Deans Creative English School covers attendance costs of external teacher training events, such as the ACEIA Conference (in Sevilla in November), TESOL in Merida and the FECEI annual conference (in Madrid in February). Furthermore, any teacher who is looking to study higher level teaching qualifications such as the DELTA or TESOL Diploma can apply to the school for a financial subsidy of up to 30% of course fees.

Compensation
We offer full-time contracts which include full health and social security cover. In addition, all staff are covered by private accident insurance, which covers work-related accidents and civil responsibility. Teachers enjoy two weeks paid holiday at Christmas and one week at Easter. All employees enjoy both national and local public holidays.
Teachers can be expected to earn between 1300 - 1600 (gross) per month for 25 hours of teaching per week. Salaries are based on the applicant's experience and qualifications. In addition, there is a bonus scheme of 500 Euros per term for all teachers.
Compensation is considerably more than that stipulated in national pay agreements. Teachers also receive holiday pay on completion of contracts. We believe that we offer an extremely attractive package for one of the cheapest regions of the country to live in.
