Details of Position
The main role of our EFL Teachers is teaching English to international students aged 8 to 17 at a variety of language levels.

Before your Teaching Commences

Teacher inductions are mandatory and attendance is a contractual obligation.
You will report to the management team in your centre, who will allocate duties to you.
You will teach a set number of hours per week according to the academic schedule in your centre.
Pair-teaching is central to the academic programme. It is therefore essential that you liaise and plan together throughout the course.
Each week, you will teach from the prescribed syllabus and academic schedule available from your Academic Manager in each centre.
All teacher administration (such as lesson plans, schemes of work, reports & student forms) will be completed to a high standard and on time.
It is crucial that you attend the teacher induction and all meetings for information, updates and clarification.
Attendance of the weekly Academic Afternoon to include the Teacher Development Workshop is compulsory.
You are expected to follow the guidelines set out in more detail in the Teachers Handbook.
Activities (Teacher + Activities Contracts only)
While participating in afternoon and evening activities or excursions you will report to the Activity Managers, who are responsible for all non-academic activities.
The Activity Manager will inform you of the weekly rota and itinerary for the forthcoming programme or activity at scheduled times.
You are required to do a certain number of activities per week according to your contract.
On excursions you are to remain with the group the entire time. You will give out maps, itineraries and any other information that has been prepared for your group under the guidance of the appointed excursion leader.
You will be provided with a Concorde International polo shirt or similar which you are required to wear while participating in the activity programme and on excursions.
Duties at Residential Centres
All staff on Teacher Plus Activities contracts can be allocated to residential duties to include meal time and break time supervision.
There will be a rota in the centre each week, available at the induction.
Teachers provided with accommodation are reminded that the main purpose of employing residential staff is to provide security and welfare for our residential students.
Residential staff are expected to work six units of activities and/or excursions per week, some of which will include residential duties - assisting with getting the students up in the mornings, making sure they are in bed in the evenings and supervising quiet times.
