Details of Position
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.
Salary and Benefits
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.
