We are advertising two types of vacancy for 2018:

2. English Language Teachers

This role involves teaching English as a Second Language to the children on weekday mornings, and accompanying them on full day educational excursions. The teachers are responsible for planning engaging lessons, marking, report-writing, and attending INSETS/meetings/briefings as required. The teachers have break and lunch-time duties, but do not work in the evenings.

The people we are looking for:

There are two profiles of candidate for this position. The first is a graduate with at least 2 years' experience and a CELTA/Trinity CertTESOL qualification. They should have experience of working with children and teaching multilingual groups. Previous Summer School experience is strongly preferred.

The second profile is a graduate who will be finishing their PGCE in June 2018 and is in the process of completing their INTESOL teacher training. For them, this position will incorporate the Teaching Practice element of their training. Such candidates are akin to 'newly qualified', and the position is treated as an important opportunity for the candidates to gain training and certification in teaching English as a Second Language.

In both cases, we are looking for individuals who have a drive and passion for English language teaching and working with children.
