Job Summary

Full or part time position for teens and kids teacher. Qualifications are important, but ability and passion are paramount, and if you have the skills, strength of personality and sensitivity, and you can motivate and engage your students, then let's talk. Love teaching - join our staff of committed teachers. Help, support and guidance given. Sorry, but we are currently only speaking to applicants with the right to live and work in the EU.

Details of Position

We are recruiting an enthusiastic and committed full or part-time teens (and kids) teacher (i.e. if you have online teaching you wish to continue with). Our YL teachers teach practical English skills to small groups (max 10 students) of teenagers and children. Teachers are provided with a clear syllabus and all the materials and teaching aids they need, and are given initial help with course planning and classroom activities, and access to excellent resources.


Our teaching staff have been with us an average of 5 years, testimony to both the quality of teachers we employ and the respect with which we treat them.
A standard teaching week consists of approximately 28 - 30 teaching hours (45min), taught in 45, 60 or 90 min. blocks. Timetables differ, but typically 50% of classes are taught on site and the remainder in nearby schools and companies. Split days are kept to a minimum.
Candidates should have excellent communication skills and a passion for teaching effectively as well as an openness to try new classroom activities. We conduct observations and teacher development sessions, and our staff cooperate to spread best practice.
Liberec is a small city with a population of 100 000, and is 100km north of Prague, near the borders with Poland and Germany. It lies in a valley between two mountain ranges, and is a winter sports destination. Liberec has a university and thus a large student population. Our school is located near the historical centre of the city, in relatively newly refurbished, purposely designed premises. With jogging, hiking, cycling, cross-country skiing and outdoor swimming all possible within easy distance of the city, living under pandemic conditions in Liberec is much less restrictive than in most places.
The school was founded in 1995 and is owned and run by teachers, for teachers and students.
We give new teachers help in finding suitable accommodation and with negotiating Czech officials. We also give new teachers an introduction to specific issues concerning teaching English to Czech students.

Qualifications

The ideal candidate will hold a CELTA (with a Young Learners extension where appropriate), or PGCE, will have two or more years teaching experience, and be eager to develop their skills. However, above all they must have the skills, strength of personality and sensitivity to gain and hold the attention of their students whether they are young learners, teenagers or adults. They will receive support regarding course planning and classroom activities, and will work closely with other members of our teaching staff. Excellent English skills, native speaker or CPE level are essential.

Salary and Benefits

Teachers can either work as employees, or under their own business licence. The majority of teachers work under their own business licence (which the school assists teachers in attaining), and invoice between 25K and 35K Czech Crowns per month. This affords teachers a comfortable standard of living. Teachers may also work as employees, with paid holidays etc, in which case their gross monthly salary is approx. 25K Czech Crowns. Deductions for health and social insurance leave employed teachers with approximately 20K net.

Teachers are given assistance with all aspects of legalization and settling. However we do not pay travel costs to the Czech Republic. Teachers are also given free Czech lessons. Some of our native speakers have now settled in Czech and pay mortgages and bring up children, on their income. Candidates should however be aware that they need to arrive with sufficient funds to support themselves until they receive their first pay check.

Monthly rent can vary from 6 000,-Kc for shared accommodation to 10 500,-Kc for a single occupancy flat.
