Are you a qualified EFL Teacher? Do you enjoy getting involved in trips, sports and activities? Do you want to help us give our students a great time? Your motivation, professionalism and flexibility will ensure that they, and you, enjoy the whole summer school experience.
Join us at one of the top ranked residential summer schools in the UK. We offer a friendly, professional, rewarding environment and have positions available from the beginning of July.


Our teachers deliver fun and effective lessons that promote active engagement of all the students to improve their confidence, accuracy and fluency in spoken English. There is a pre-planned syllabus and materials along with strong academic support. 
It is very important that our students are happy and well-looked after in all areas of the programme and they really enjoy interacting with their teachers outside of the classroom as well as in lessons. That is why we are looking for EFL teachers who not only have a passion for teaching but who will fulfil their supervision, airport, recreation, excursion and welfare duties as enthusiastically and professionally as they do their academic ones. 


In addition to the essential/desirable qualifications and experience detailed below, you will have: 
- a willingness to throw yourself into the role 
- the desire to help create a great experience for our students 
- a genuine interest in the safety, welfare and happiness of our students 
- the ability to motivate and stimulate the students both in and out of the classroom 
- enthusiasm and a sense of humour
- flexibility and commitment to the team 


- a comprehensive pre-course paid induction 
- an experienced Senior Staff team (mostly from mainstream state or independent schools) 
- a non-teaching Director of Studies and Senior Teacher 
- pre-planned syllabus and materials 
- extensive EFL resources 
- structured observations with oral and written feedback

- a University Degree (level 6)
- a native speaker level of English 
We welcome applicants with a PBEd/PGCE (Primary Education, English or MFL) 

- applicants with specialist Young Learner qualifications 
- previous residential experience, especially with children
