- Italy: Castrovillari (Province of Cosenza).
- ACCADEMIA DELLE LINGUE
- Experience: 1 YEAR
- Positions: 2
- Degree Required
Details of Position
We require warm, friendly and outgoing teachers who can establish good rapport with our well-established YL & GE classes. The applicants need to have a sufficient level of personal hygiene and a reasonable dress sense (we politely request this due to negative past experiences with a couple of former teachers)
Teaching hours will be around 25 per week, Monday to Friday usually afternoon-evening, the school closes at 9pm during the week, so that is the latest end to the working day you can expect. If requested; there may be private classes and short courses which occur in the mornings, which will certainly allow a wider scope beyond teaching YLs and Teens exclusively.
Class sizes are up to a maximum of 12 students. All teaching materials are provided and a very well-stocked resource room is at your disposal. Classrooms are equipped with audio equipment and smart speakers; which can be employed during classroom activities.
YL Teacher: A1 to A2 KET/A2 Flyers, ages 7-12
GE Teacher: A2 KET to C1 Advanced (CEFR)
Both roles will involve an occasional adult class or one-to-one (subject to availability and preference of the teachers).
The teaching contract begins in the middle of September 2019, and finishes at the end of May 2020, with an option to renew the contract upon the agreement of both parties
Information on our location
The teacher will be working at a small-medium sized private school (around 250 students in total). Located in Castrovillari (population 22,000), in Calabria, the very south of Italy. It is a beautiful town, surrounded by the Pollino mountain range and a 30 minute drive to the beach. Access to Castrovillari is via coach, there is no train service. There are flights from London to Lamezia Terme Airport, a one and a half hour drive from Castrovillari. There are flights to Naples from other UK departure points (3 hours drive from Castrovillari) and Rome (five and a half hour drive) will cover flights from any other point of departure. The average rent in this city for a one bedroom flat is around 300 Euros per month.
DUE TO ITALIAN EMPLOYMENT REGULATIONS, ONLY CURRENT EU/UK CITIZENS OR ITALIAN WORK PERMIT HOLDERS CAN BE CONSIDERED.
Covid-19 Pandemic Information: Calabria has one of the lowest infection rates in the whole of Italy. Our city, Castrovillari, has no cases whatsoever. The health and welfare of our team is of paramount importance to us and we take all necessary precautions in order to ensure the safety of staff and students alike.
The CELTA YL Extension qualification would put candidates for the YL position at a distinct advantage.
