Job Summary

The CALEDONIA School of English is an international award-winning Cambridge Premium Preparation Centre on the SW Spanish coast. Were looking for a well-qualified, experienced and committed EFL teacher for our 2020-21 course. A friendly, professional school with very spacious, modern premises and motivated students, we teach from YL to C2 levels. Monday to Friday, max. 24 class hours/week, with early Friday finish. We offer excellent working conditions and on-going training is provided. Welcome!

Details of Position

The Caledonia School of English, one of 12 world-wide University of Cambridge Preparation Centre Awards finalists in 2015 and Premium Cambridge English School was set up in March of 1993. This attractive, modern school on the beautiful Costa de la Luz is considered a centre of academic excellence in its area.

We want to recruit a talented and committed EFL teacher to complete our teaching team for this coming 2020-2021 academic year. Applicants must be university graduates with good TEFL and/or PGCE qualifications and a willingness to work supportively in a close-knit team.

We are a long-standing official University of Cambridge Preparation and Examinations Centre, therefore, we expect teachers to have previous experience preparing students for official examinations and of on-going assessment. All prospective candidates should be adequately trained to teach both face-to-face and using video-conference platforms. They must show self-motivation, have good organisational skills and class-management skills as well as being well appointed.

Our school is perfectly adapted to meet all the latest regulatory requirements in terms of safety, hygiene and social distancing between students.

We offer a comfortable 24-hour per week teaching timetable for full-time teachers with an early finish on Fridays. This post will appeal to teachers with good quality TEFL experience looking to establish themselves in Spain before legal changes are implemented on 1st January as a result of Brexit, those who desire a change of geographic location and those teachers who wish to acquire more expertise preparing students for official examinations. However, the position is not suitable for candidates whose only previous experience has been as Language Assistants.

Training is provided and the school encourages and supports future professional development. Travel costs are reimbursed by the school and complimentary hotel accommodation provided on arrival.

Our location is very attractive and enjoys the highest sunlight hours in Europe. Living costs are low compared to other areas of Spain and good, economical accommodation is in abundance.

We very much look forward to receiving your application if you meet our requirements.

Salary and Benefits

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY and we highly recommend you note the difference between "Gross" and "Net" payments in all advertisements or the absence of precise remuneration details, which is a frequent misleading practice:

Guaranteed Basic Salary: 1,375 - 1,445 Euros per month (depending on experience)
Take-home pay: 1,250 - 1,325* (after-tax, S.S. and other deductions)

Social Security, Health and Unemployment benefits are covered by the School (approx. 450 euros / p.m.) plus an accident insurance and free annual medical test.
Contract completion payment (approx. 1,000 euros)

Income tax is usually set at 2% for new teachers and NHS & SS contributions at 6.4%. The School fully covers all other costs. Teachers living in Spain longer-term should check their tax rate annually as some, depending on their income and deductible costs, may be entitled to a tax return the following year. The Spanish tax year runs from 1st January to 31st December.

Initial contract period: mid-September 2020 - 30th June 2021 (longer-term contract available with Summer course option).

Holidays: 15 days at Christmas & New Year, 1 week at Easter, 4-5 days for local fair (late-May) plus all other local, provincial, regional and national holidays. All holidays are fully paid for by the School. Long-term teachers who work on summer courses have at least 3 weeks additional holidays in summer.

The School courteously offers hotel accommodation to appointed teachers on arrival and for the first 3 nights. We also reimburse your travel costs and help you to find permanent accommodation. Spanish tuition can be provided by the school if required.

*Teachers who have already worked in Spain will have the required identity / fiscal document with N.I.E. number. Those who haven't, may apply for this directly to the Consulate (if possible before arrival, but probably difficult) or the School will help you to apply for it when you arrive.

All remuneration details confirmed by The Caledonia School of English S.L. are accurate and fully
transparent. If anything remains unclear, please do not hesitate to ask.
