Job Summary

The CALEDONIA School of English, an international, award-winning Cambridge Premium Preparation Centre on the SW Spanish coast, is recruiting well-qualified EFL teachers for the 2022-23 course.

We offer an attractive Monday-Friday timetable, on-going training and excellent working conditions. We are very keen to receive applications from dynamic teachers.

Details of Position

The Caledonia School of English is an award-winning Cambridge Preparation Centre and Premium Cambridge English School. This attractive, excellently-equipped, modern school on the beautiful Costa de la Luz has been widely regarded as a centre of academic excellence in its area since 1993.

We want to recruit dedicated EFL teachers to complete our teaching team for the coming academic year. Applicants must be university graduates with good TEFL and/or PGCE qualifications and be committed to working supportively in a close-knit team. We expect teachers to have previous experience preparing students for official examinations and of regular performance assessment.

Although all our classes tend to be face-to-face, teachers should also be adequately trained to teach using video-conference platforms. It is important to be empathetic, positive-thinking, self-motivated and have good organisational and class-management skills. Additionally, all our teachers must be well appointed and prepared to uphold the values and standards of the school and the expectations of our clients.

Our teachers have 24 hours of classes per week and there is no weekend teaching. The school perfectly meets all regulatory requirements in terms of safety, hygiene and social distance between students. All our classes have natural light, they are extremely spacious and all are fitted with high-quality interactive whiteboards, a fast internet service and excellent sound equipment. We take great care to use the best resources available both in printed and digital form to enable our students to reach their goals. Our library is well stocked with a wide variety of back-up materials.

These positions will appeal to teachers with good TEFL qualifications and solid experience who are already working in Spain and to those who desire a change of geographic location or longer-term career development. Please note that it is important to check your eligibility to work in Spain before applying and we should also emphasize that these positions are not suitable for candidates whose only previous experience has been as Language Assistants.

On-going training is provided and the school encourages and supports future professional development. Travel costs from other areas of Spain or from Ireland and/or the U.K. will be reimbursed by the school and complimentary hotel accommodation provided on arrival.

Both our school and our location, "Spanish Gastronomic Capital 2022" are extremely attractive and our area enjoys the highest sunlight hours in Europe. Living costs are low compared to other areas of Spain and good, furnished and affordable accommodation is easy to find.

We very much look forward to receiving your application if your profile meets our requirements and you'd like to be part of our team.
