Job Summary

Smarter English is looking for some great teachers to work for up to 2 weeks in northern Italy during September.
The contract involves teaching small groups of Italian teenagers. Lessons must be fun, engaging and afford lots of much-needed speaking practice.
Afternoons are free.
Accommodation is with local host families.
Pay is 500 euros (gross) per week, plus travel expenses.

Details of Position

I organise short language projects in Italy.
The objective of these projects is to offer high-school students valuable speaking opportunities and to activate the language they have studied during English lessons. I also want to offer TEFL teachers a fair wage and a fun break from their regular teaching roles.

So this is your chance to break the routine and come to work at a high school in Italy for 1 or 2 weeks.

There are a number of projects running concurrently throughout the Veneto and Emilia Romagna regions during the following weeks:
Calendar Week 35: Monday 30th Aug - Friday 3rd Sept 2021
Calendar Week 36: Monday 6th - Friday 10th Sept 2021

I am looking for teachers to work as independent contractors for one or both of these weeks.
Workday is typically 8am-1pm and composed of 3x 80 minute lessons.
Teachers work in rotation teaching 3 or 4 groups over the course of the week.
Groups are composed of 8 - 12 students.

I pride myself on the fact that almost everyone who has worked for me on these projects has had a great time and has even recommended the opportunity to colleagues and friends.

Application deadline: I will do some interviews every few weeks so don't delay!
please send a CV in pdf format with covering letter ASAP

Teaching experience:
2 years
Native level English speaker preferred


As a qualified super-teacher, I expect you to have a CELTA or equivalent, at least 2 years of teaching experience and a cracking CV. You should also be comfortable working with teenagers, living as a guest in a host family and dealing with unexpected situations.
I am also particularly interested in candidates who have had a career prior to joining the ranks of TEFL.

Salary and Benefits

500 euros (gross) for each weeks' work + 300 euros total contribution for transport costs, payable via bank transfer upon receipt of invoice. So if you work both weeks, you would issue an invoice for 1300 euros. (500+500+300)

What better way to experience life in Italy than living with a real Italian family? They will feed you, introduce you to the extended family and neighbours and generally overwhelm you with their kindness.
Your host family may live a short walk or even a short bus ride from the school where you will be teaching.

Aside from breakfast and home cooked evening meals with the host family, you will be free to lunch, according to your tastes and budget, in a plethora of local eateries.

The aforementioned transport contribution should cover your return flights from any European departure point plus train fare between projects. You are free to book your own flights and choose flight days to suit any touristic aspirations.
