SBC teachers are an integral part of a successful summer, and it is often their ability to engage the students both in and out of the classroom in a fun yet professional manner that ensures students are happy throughout their stay.


Hours of Work:


All teachers work a 13 session week, with a session being either a morning, afternoon or evening. Of these 13 sessions, 5 are spent in the classroom, whilst the other 8 are spent helping with the activities programme or on pastoral duties, ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the students during meals, in break times, in the boarding houses and at night. This breakdown means that the majority of sessions will be spent delivering the non-academic elements of the course, so it is important teaching staff are enthusiastic and ready to actively engage in all aspects of the summer school programme. All teachers will receive one full day off per week.
