Job Summary

Due to expansion, we are looking for one more mother-tongue/bilingual/ native-level speaking teacher for the next academic year.If you are looking to develop your career in an independent school off the usual tourist trail where you can work with a great team of ELT professionals, we would love to hear from you!

Details of Position

The Stamford School was set up in 1999 by its British owner and director, Sam Dyer. We are a small but busy school and one of the few Authorised Cambridge Centres in Calabria. The Stamford Team is guided by Sam and two very experienced directors - Emma and Olivia - who have been at the school since they arrived as starter teachers many a moon ago!

We are an AISLi-accredited school which guarantees the highest levels of care and excellence to its students and teachers. After our recent AISLi inspection (April 2022), our report highlighted our ethos of student and staff well-being:

"Parents and students feel valued and listened to. Parents have chosen the school thanks to its excellent reputation and the level of customer care they receive. Students feel they are seen as individuals and are cared for."
"Teachers are really looked after in this school, the CPD calendar is very impressive as is the pastoral care which is given.They have reflected on a teachers work-life balance, and they try to support them as much as they can."

All our team love teaching and we have a great atmosphere here where we share successes (and failures) and enjoy trying out new ideas and supporting one another.
You should have experience teaching teenagers, isn't afraid of hard work, who is happiest working as part of a team and who will embrace all the CPD opportunities we offer.

For a team member with the right experience and who stays beyond the first year, there are possibilities to become a Cambridge Speaking Examiner and to receive financial sponsorship for further professional and academic qualifications.

Please note that The Stamford School is NOT in a city and would therefore suit somebody who is looking to settle into a small town, decidedly off the tourist trail!

Before applying, please check out our social media to get a flavour of our school. Our website is currently being updated.
