Job Summary

Fettes Centre for Language and Culture (FCLC Edinburgh) requires multiple summer school teachers to work for up to 6 weeks on our innovative and exciting British Council-accredited programme from 5 July to 15 August 2020. FCLC is based within the unique grounds of Fettes College, just one mile from the historic and cultural city centre of Edinburgh.

Details of Position

Fettes College's own residential summer school, Fettes Centre for Language and Culture (FCLC Edinburgh) has had 14 successful years of operation and is accredited by the British Council. Fettes College is situated in 90 acres of private grounds just one mile from Edinburgh's historic city centre. We are recruiting enthusiastic and dedicated staff to work in July and August 2020. We pride ourselves on offering a superb team environment for all staff with excellent terms and benefits.

In summer 2020, students will attend our programme from 5 July to 15 August. Our academic programme is divided into lessons for young learners (10-13-year-olds) and young students (14-17-year olds). Classes are multi-national, have an average of 12 students and a maximum of 14 students and cater for levels from A1 to C1. The focus will be on creating maximum opportunities for students to use the English that they learned before coming to FCLC and to build on this knowledge while they are here. This will be achieved by the students working on tasks in the classroom and on excursions structured around a selection of weekly themes.

Teachers are responsible for delivering stimulating and challenging lessons while following our in house syllabus and guidelines and will work 17.5 contact hours in class plus 10.5 hours working on projects and class excursions as well as 7 hours' preparation/admin (total 35 hours) per week.

Teachers must attend the induction days on Friday & Saturday, 3rd & 4th July.
