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.


Teaching Duties:

The teachers report directly to the management team and must:

  • Become familiar with the SBC syllabus, materials and resources during induction week  
  • Teach lessons using the SBC syllabus and other appropriate materials
  • Maintain administrative systems by preparing and keeping class lists, records of work, class registers and preparing certificates and reports
  • Attend to the individual needs of students to ensure that maximum benefit is gained from the English Course
  • Manage the classroom behaviour effectively and ensure all students participate
  • Attend meetings as requested by the summer school management
  • Attend teacher development workshops
  • Be observed by the Director of Studies and if necessary, the Academic Manager

Activity Programme Duties:

  • Engage fully in the activity programme, leading, assisting and taking part in activities
  • Assist in preparing activities if necessary
  • Lead groups of students on excursions, following pre-planned itineraries
  • Ensure that the students are safe and engaged in the activity or excursion at all times


House & Pastoral Duties:

The welfare of students is paramount to us. Although we employ House Parents to oversee and attend to the day-to-day welfare needs of our students, every member of the team is expected to assist in maintaining the welfare and order within their boarding house. Both teachers and Activity Leaders are placed on house duty twice each week to support and mirror the House Parent in the pastoral duties of that day.

All members of our staff teams have a duty of care for students at our summer school and therefore, will be expected to carry out the following tasks: 

  • Assist with meal time and break time supervision when required
  • Support House Parent when doing the allocated day’s House Duty, including wake-up, escorting students around the school, supervising students while in the houses and lights-out
  • Help ensure that the students do not breach the rules of the school
  • Assist when present, whether on duty or not, with an emergency situation, or where a student is ill or injured
  • Engage with the students outside of classes and assigned activity sessions in a friendly and professional manner
