Job Summary

Details of Position

The Director of Studies will provide ongoing support for EFL Teachers in the preparation, coordination, and teaching of English. We are looking for Academic Managers who are both excellent classroom practitioners, with experience in a variety of teaching contexts, and at the same time, competent EFL Managers. The position requires a steadfast commitment to delivering a high-quality experience to all key stakeholders, from students and Group Leaders to our Host Institutions, whilst ensuring that all staff are fully motivated, committed, and driven in making each day a success.

Our centres run from 4 to 6 weeks and our students, who are under the age of 18*, come from all over the world, typically staying for 13 nights where they complete a 30-hour English Language Course along with activities on site, half-day and full day excursions, and evening activities.

You will oversee the whole academic programme with the support of the Centre Manager, and in some centres, the Assistant Director of Studies. The programme runs from breakfast to lights out and you will be fully trained before the centre opening and supported throughout the summer in the day-to-day operation by our experienced Summer Centres Head Office Team.

You will use your positive, professional attitude, initiative, creativity, and exceptional organisational skills to lead the academic team.

*Some centres may include international high school students who turn 18 before they arrive at the summer centre, there will be appropriate provision and safeguarding measures in place to accommodate them on which you will be fully trained.
