Job Summary

Speak are looking for a Learning Manager to join our academic team focused on the delivery of our online English programmes. The Learning Manager will work closely with our Learning Director to deliver and develop highly communicative and enjoyable study pathways for learners across Italy and Europe.

The role involves teaching One-to-One and small-group lessons as well as coordinating an international network of native-English speakers who meet the learners for conversational English practice.

Details of Position

Speak is the first company of its kind in Italy to offer English language immersion programmes combining English lessons and communicative practice with native English speakers (our Anglos) from all around the world. This unique combination enables learners to develop their English language skills and their confidence in spoken English through highly communicative and memorable programmes.

Speak delivers a number of online programmes as well as 4-day residential programmes for adults and residential summer camps for teenagers.

The Speak office team is made up of 9 staff with DELTA qualified teachers and Cambridge examiners on the academic team. Speak also has a local English school in Molfetta which is a Trinity exam centre and Cambridge preparation centre.

The Learning Manager role involves the administration and teaching of our individual and corporate learners who are studying remotely though our Speak Society programme. Learners are based across Italy and the Anglos they meet are based all over the English-speaking world. The role involves working closely with, and receiving support from, Speak's Learning Director.

The role spans two key areas:

Teaching and Client-Facing Sessions (up to 60%)
- Deliver General English lessons for individuals and corporate groups;
- Conduct Level Tests and Needs Analyses for new learners;
- Participate in Anglo Training sessions.

Programme Administration & Development (40-50%)

- Manage a busy inbox;
- Work with Speak directors to develop new learning pathways (General and ESP courses);
- Build and maintain relationships with new and existing corporate clients.

Requirements of the Role:

Like all Speak staff members, the Learning Manager should be flexible and willing to go the extra mile to deliver learners a highly valuable and exciting learning experience. We expect the Learning Manager to:

Be organised, punctual and communicative: The role requires a great deal of organisation, attention to detail and commitment to both learners and Anglos. You will set goals and priorities with the rest of the Speak Team and share progress as projects unfold.

Create and deliver quality lessons/workshops: Our goal is to deliver highly enjoyable and valuable lessons and workshops which make learning English exciting and achievable.

Show professionalism: The role means being a representative of Speak to a wide number of clients. Speak asks all staff to conduct themselves in a professional, friendly manner.

About Molfetta: Molfetta is a small coastal town (60,000 pop.) on the Adriatic coast, around 25km north of Bari which is well connected to cities across Europe. Puglia is a beautiful region with lots to offer and Molfetta is well placed for day trips to historic towns and beaches, UNESCO sites etc. Living costs are low for Italy and Speak will help with finding accommodation and settling in.
