Working with us provides the opportunity to:

* Work in a friendly but professional environment where there is a variety of class types and
ages to help you broaden your experience.
* Learn from supportive, motivated peers (there is a full-time teaching staff of 21, including
a 5-person academic management team, whose pedagogical experience is wide and varied)
* Develop through regular observations, appraisals, and professional development sessions. (On
our Facebook page you can find details of our most recent training sessions with leading

Italian lessons (held on the school premises with a qualified teacher)
* In the event of the contract being renewed for the following year, there is the possibility to
attend the IH Certificate in teaching Young Learners and Teenagers or another relevant ELT

As most of the teaching involves external (off-site) courses, this role does require a certain amount of flexibility and cultural sensitivity, so the ability to deal with changes and diversity in a positive manner is essential for this role. Where offsite courses are not within reasonable walking distance (10-15 mins) of the school, teachers are accompanied from, and back to, school by car. Travelling time is counted as working hours.
