The successful applicant will be welcomed into our friendly team and can expect 15 contact hours of classes per week with a mixture of young learner, exam preparation, adult and corporate classes. We try to make sure that a teaching timetable reflects a teacher’s strengths, experiences and preferences. While most of the teaching is in school and is conducted in the afternoons and evenings, there are some off-site classes as well at other times of day. Saturday classes are very popular and are currently in the mornings.

The school is open six days a week, from Monday to Saturday. Contract teachers have two full days off per week which may not be consecutive and will usually include Saturday mornings.

We offer a great package of professional development which will begin with a full induction before starting to teach. During the school year you will have regular informal meetings with a member of our academic management team, be encouraged to join co-planning sessions with other teachers and partake in a regular programme of practical seminars. In January you will also attend the fantastic IH Portugal Training Day and have the opportunity to complete the IH CYLT.
